Banoffee Pie

This has to be the most easiest pudding ever to make. The pictures unfortunatley do not do it justice. You can't beat bananas, cream, caramel. They are a match made in heaven and the taste is oh so worth it. Ian and I devoured the whole pie in one evening. The best thing of all there is really no cooking involved at all.

Banoffee Pie
2 Bananas
1 Cup Whipping Cream
1 Small tin Condensed Milk
Store bought Graham Cracker base

Firstly bring a large pan of water to a gently simmer. Add the tin of condensed milk (do not open the tin) to the pan ensuring the water covers the whole tin and continue to simmer for 4 hours (Don't worry it won't would if we were boiling the tine hard).The tin has to be submerged in the water for the full four hours. After four hours remove the tin from the pan and allow to cool slightly. Slice the bananas and layer one of them onto the graham cracker base and then pour the condensed milk (which will now be caramel) over top. Layer the second banana over top of the caramel layer. Whip the cream until you get soft peaks and spread over the top of the caramel and banana. Allow pie to sit in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours to allow everything to firm up. Then get a huge spoon and tuck in!!!
