Banaoffee pie is an all time favourite and if you want a slightly lighter pudding try it without the crust. I think that the original version needs no additions but some people like to add chocolate pieces or curls to the decoration. Try and get bananas that are not too ripe - especially if you are using them for decoration as well. I have tried this using a caramel filling instead of the condensed milk - but it is not quite as good. 1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk -- caramelised 1 Large Pie Shell 6 Large Bananas -- sliced lengthways 1/2 Pint Whipped Cream 1 Teaspoon Coffee Powder, French Flavor 1 Teaspoon Ground Coffee or coffee beans Caramelise the condenced milk by boiling in an unopened tin for 3 hours. Place in a pie shell. Cover with sliced bananas. Add the coffee to the cream and spread on top of bananas. Decorate with coffee granules or ground coffee or coffee beans. Choclate pieces and banana slices can also be used for decoration but remember to brush banana slices with lemon juice so they do not discolour. Serving Ideas : Make without crust and serve as a pudding.
