This is my Banoffee Pies for KBB-5
For decoration I used coarsely chocolate chips mix with walnuts.I feel its a good combination for banana, caramel and the whip cream.
Had 2 slices directly after finished decorating.

Ingredients for Pastry
300g flour, 150g unsalted butter, diced, 5 Tbs sugar, 2 egg yolks, 3 Tbs cold water
Combine the flour, butter and sugar in the food processor and process until well mixed. Then mix in the egg yolks and process in small bursts until the mixture appears crumbly. Add the water a little at a time. As the crumbs get larger, turn the motor off and check that the pastry will come together when pressed between your fingers. Turn the mixture on to a clean board or bench and work very gently into a ball. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Roll out the dough to line 20-22cm flan or loose-bottomed tart tin, prick the base of the pastry with fork several times. Set aside for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Line the base of the pastry with baking paper and beans, bake blind for 12-15 minutes or until the pastry turns golden brown. Remove the paper and beans. (Return the pastry base into the oven for 5 minutes or until the base becomes dry.)
50g brown sugar
3 Tbs milk
300g sweetened condensed milk,( I used 175 g only)
2 firm bananas
½ -1 cup white chocolate curls atau grated white chocolate
Place the butter and sugar in a non-stick pan and heat gently until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and simmer for one minute, stirring continuously using a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat and add the milk and condensed milk. Return to the heat and bring to the boil. Allow to gently bubble for 5-6 minutes, stirring continuously until the mixture thickens and turns a light golden brown. Cool slightly.
Cut the bananas and put them on the base of the pastry. Pour in the caramel mixture. Leave to cool then chill for at least 2 hours. Serve topped with the whipped cream, spooned or spread over the caramel, and the grated chocolate. (You can always use your piping bag and noozle! You are allowed to use nuts if you'd like). Makes 4-6.
