Banoffee Pie is a delicious combination of a condensed milk-caramel filling and fresh bananas. They go together so well and this recipe is sure to please. You can make it with a pastry or with a crumb base. Both are equally delicious, but I find using pastry is a lot faster and I always have sheets of pastry in the freezer. You can either sprinkle nutmeg on the top or cinnamon, or even a combination of both. Try not to eat all the condensed milk before you make the filling, that stuff is soo good!
I found the best way to store this is to eat it all at once. I mean, you know, I guess if you wanted to keep it covered in the fridge for 3 days, that would be ok too.
