Banoffi or Banoffee Pie
(taken from the Ruth bible study...Loss, Love & Legacy by Kelly Minter)
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
10 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 14-oz. cans sweetened condensed milk
3 large bananas
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. powdered instant coffee
freshly ground coffee, chocolate shavings or chocolate sprinkles
Immerse the unopened cans of sweetened condensed milk in a deep pot of boiling water. Cover and boil for 3 hours, making sure the cans remain covered with water. (Add water as neededd.) Remove the cans from the water; allow to cool completely.
While you cook the sweetened condensed milk, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix the graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and press mixture into 9" pie plate. (I used a 7 1/2 x 11 3/4 inch pan.) Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Whip the cream with the sugar, vanilla, and instant coffee until thick and smooth. Spread 1/3 of the toffee over the base of the crust. Slice the bananas and lay them on the toffee. Spoon another 1/3 of toffee over the bananas. Layer with more bananas and more toffee. Finally, spoon or pipe on the cream and lightly sprinkle with fresh ground coffee, chocolate shavings or chocolate sprinkles.
Note: Boiling milk in the can carries some risk. On the internet, you can find other ways to cook the sweetened condensed milk (in canning jars, for example).
