Flawless combination of bananas and homemade toffee — absolutely delicious!

Ingredients for the biscuit base

Butter melted 100 gms

Digestive biscuits crushed 250 gms

Ingredients for the filling 

Dark brown sugar 100gms

Bananas 3 whole

Condensed milk 1 tin (397gms)

Butter melted 100 gms

Whipped Cream

Cocoa powder for dusting

Method

1.  Mix the biscuit crumbs and butter in a bowl.

2.  Line the base of a springform tin with the above mixture using a spoon. Make sure that the mixture is half way up on the sides of the tin in order to make a pie shell.

3.  Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

4.  Take a non-stick saucepan and add butter and sugar to it. Melt the butter and sugar on low heat, stirring continuously till the sugar has dissolved completely.

5.  Now add condensed milk to the butter and sugar mixture and bring to a rapid boil for about a minute. Stir repeatedly until the mixture turns into a thick golden caramel form.

6.  Spread the caramel over the biscuit base and refrigerate for another hour till the base is firm and ready to serve.

7.  Carefully lift the base off the tin and place it on a serving plate.

8.  Slice the bananas and line them on top of the base.

9.  Decorate it with whipped cream and finish off by dusting some cocoa powder on top.
