Ingredients

Base:

  • 1 1/2 cups digestive/graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tbs butter melted

Toffee Filling:

  • 3 tbs butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 14 oz can condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • -OR-
  • 1 can prepared dulce de leche

Topping:

  • 3 small bananas sliced
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream—see NOTES
  • 2 oz melted dark chocolate

Instructions

  • Mix the base ingredients and press into a 8-in/20cm springform pan that has been lined with parchment on the bottom.
  • If you make the filling, heat the butter and sugar in a saucepan over low heat and stir until combined. Add the condensed milk and bring to a boil, stirring for 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to overcook this or it will become gritty with a fudge-like texture (although it will still taste good). Stir in the vanilla and pour into the prepared pan. Alternatively, you may use prepared dulce de leche if you want to eliminate this step.Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Place the sliced bananas on top of the toffee filling. Whip the cream until peaks form (I advise stabilizing the whipped cream). Spread whipped cream on top of the bananas.
  • Drizzle with melted chocolate and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes

In a pinch you can substitute whipped topping, but it will not taste as good. Likewise, canned whipped cream, such as Reddi-Whip, may be added at the time you serve the pie. However, I highly recommend using real whipped cream and stabilizing the cream either using the cream cheese method or using instant clear jel and my preferred method is the clear jel.
