Banoffe Pie -- who's made it and has a great recipe?

We're having our annual fried chicken dinner this weekend, and the sour cherries I've been hoarding in the freezer will be making an appearance in cherry pie. But given the size of the group, I definitely need another dessert, and when one of our guest mentioned that banana cream pie was his favorite, I thought of making a Banoffe Pie instead. I've only had it once, but it was memorable. It was in the British Club in Cairo, and when they told us they only had one slice of apple pie left, they suggested I try the Banoffe Pie instead. I've been wanting to make it ever since, but since my husband detests bananas, it had to be an occasion when there was more than one dessert. And when I saw that smittenkitchen.com had a recent recipe for dulce de leche, my mind was made up. Though the internet is littered with recipes, I'm wondering if anyone has a fail-safe version that they love.
