Banoffee Pie

I find this is a very popular dessert amongst adults and kids. I think the banana and toffee flavour takes us all back to our childhood, remember banana chews? This version is a bit of a cheats version as I am using a pre-made pastry base to save time. You can also buy condensed milk, caramel version, which would save time on making the caramel too. 

Serves 8-10
1 large good quality pastry case
1 tin of condensed milk
150g butter
150g dark brown sugar
2 bananas
300 ml of double cream

Rapidly melt the butter and sugar together until starting to boil. Add the tin of condensed milk and combine well, then keep stirring on the heat until the sauce has thickened slightly. Pour the caramel into the pastry case and leave to cool a little before putting it in the fridge to set. Once set, chop the bananas and arrange on top of the carmel mixture. Whisk the double cream until it has thickened and spoon this on top of the banana. Decorate with shaving of chocolate or chocolate sprinkles.
