Left over bananas?  Try this sucker!
  Now, I know what you’re asking, what the heck is a banoffee pie?  I was asking myself the same thing.  According to Endless Simmer it is a British pudding consisting of bananas, cream, condensed milk, and sugar on a pastry or crust base.
I am not a banana lover, GASP, but this pie had me thinking I needed to make it as soon as possible.  Besides that I suppose there are other members in my family that love bananas.  I don't even know when bananas and I got into a fight?  For as long as I can remember I have always hated them.  My Mom used to feed them to me al the time as a baby, so I don't know why they just don't taste good to me.  Even though I don't like them I am a good Mom and buy them for my kiddos and hubby.  I really really wish I liked them.  They are packed with so many good-for-you things.  Oh well!  Maybe someday bananas and I will make up.
Banoffee Pie 
Make a simple Graham cracker crust (graham crackers, sugar, butter)
8 tbsp butter
1/4 C  light brown sugar
4 tbsp milk
14oz can condensed milk
6 medium bananas
1 1/4 cups Heavy cream
1/4 C sugar
juice of half a lemon
-For the pie crust I home made a simple graham cracker crust.


-Slice four of the bananas and layer them in the crust base, two layers should be enough.
-For the fudge sauce place 6 tbsp butter and the Brown sugar in a pan, bring to the boil and continue heating until the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat and add 2 tbsp milk and condensed milk. Return to the heat and boil, stirring briskly for a few minutes or until the mixture turns to a cream. Pour the fudge sauce over the bananas, then chill for about an hour.
-Slice the remaining two bananas and place these in a bowl. Mix in the juice of half the lemon, layer once on top of the fudge sauce.
-Melt the remaining butter in a pan and add the sugar. Melt on low heat. Add 2 tbsp of milk and cook for one minute or until the sugar turns into a caramel colour and thickens. Pour this over the second banana layer.


-Once the pie has chilled, whip the cream until stiff and scoop (unevenly) on top of the pie and chill for an additional hour.
