Banoffee Pie

roxlet | May 7, 2010 04:59 AM

A while back, my son and I had occasion to have dinner at the British Club in Mohandeseen, a part of Cairo. There was only one slice of apple pie left, which my son wanted, so I wound up ordering something I had never heard of before -- Banoffee Pie. My son gobbled done most of it, leaving the apple pie uneaten, it was that good. This was a couple of months ago, and we still talk about it. I did an internet search and came up with all sorts of recipes, and caramel seems to figure in fairly heavily, which surprised me because I don't remember it in the pie we had. I remember that the waitress said that the crust was made with McVittie's biscuits and that bananas and whipped cream figured in pretty prominently. Does anyone have a reliable recipe that they'd like to share?
