The Aroma of 2013 Welcomes You - Bantastic Banoffee Pie

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

Year 2012 flew away so suddenly....A year of bitter sweet memories have passed for many. Personally I have witnessed some sad and happy moments as well...So many wrong things happened all over the world..don't know where to start and where to end ? We all have to move on.......


We will open the new book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity &
its first chapter is New Year’s Day.
( Author-Unknown )
 
May this new year bring immense joy, hope and best health to your life. May you reach new heights of success. May the New year gives us courage and strength to all.. Happy New Year !! Also I would like to say to all our readers and visitors a huge thank you for supporting us by visting us, leaving kind and encouraging words, sharing and trying our recipes...!
So let's start a new year with sweet dish and here it is...



I have been settled in UK for the past 21 years, but never tried Banoffee pie..numerous times I have seen this dessert made in many cookery shows,  seen recipes on so many blogs but always gave it a miss !! But this time on my daughter's request we both prepared this dessert.. making one that will have you making it over and over again. Easy to assemble, Irresistible and Sure to satisfy any sweet tooth..!!!! Due to it's high calorie ingredients, I have made the banoffee pie in individual serving glasses, so we all just end up indulging in just the right amount...



You will need:-
  • 100 g  crushed digestive biscuits
  • 25 g butter
  • 1 banana
  • 1 can Dulce the Leche * ( you will need 1 can of condense milk )
  • 150 ml whipping cream
  • Grated chocolate
  • 4 glasses to serve
*  Dulce the Leche is made by slowly heating condense milk till it turns a caramel colour. There are plenty of methods out there to do this, but I found a very easy method where you submerge the can of condensed milk in a pressure cooker filled with water and heat for 1 hour without the weight. Let the cooker cool naturally. Take out the can and leave to cool completely. Inside is a caramel coloured thick dulce the leche. I would recommend you to make this one day in advance. 



Method:-
Place the butter in a pan and melt it over the medium heat.
Add crushed biscuits to it and mix very well. Turn the heat off.
Place few spoons of biscuit mixture into each serving glass and press lightly.
Let it cool a bit.
Now whisk the dulce the leche to make little smooth.
Add few spoons of dulce the leche on top of the cooled biscuit base.
Cut the banana into thin slices and arrange on the dulce the leche layer.
Spoon over the whipped cream on Banana layers and finish with the grated chocolate.
Enjoy !
The aroma of JCO welcomes you in 2013.........:)
