This is a traditional popular pie in Ireland and England. The pie is full of caramel, bananas, coffee-flavored whipped cream, and shaved chocolate. It is delicious. What a great dessert for St. Patrick's Day or any special day of the year. It is a fairly easy pie to make. Enjoy :-)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This rich and decadent Banoffee pie is topped with the most wonderful coffee-flavored whipped cream. With a beautiful presentation, this would be delicious for a special occasion but it's an easy pie that can be whipped up at any time. The base is a buttery graham cracker crust that's filled with rich caramel and bananas. The topping is a firm whipped cream made richer with cream cheese and has a slight coffee flavor. Decorate this Banoffee pie for St. Patrick's Day or leave it plain (it's impressive either way). Don't be intimidated by the steps ... it is not hard to make. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
