Seriously Scoffable Banoffee
I find Banoffee’ists can be territorial but this is a bit of a fail safe to the most discerning and determined.
Sometimes you need a little luxx, and if the luxx uses up tired cookies and biscuits.
Turning a fridge raid into a diner party delight?
The topping is the key:
The Ice Cream -Cream
Combine whipped cream (soft peak) to ever so slightly softened vanilla ice cream with ½ teaspoon of vanilla essence.
Cut and fold the ice cream and vanilla into the cream. Roughly equal quantities of ice cream to whipped cream, then place into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and return to the freezer for a few minutes if too soft.
Bash and generally beat up the biscuits by hand rather in the processor, (I used ginger biscuits that were becoming a tad soft) and added some nuts in praline that were made for another recipe.
Make a base from what you have and like. You can set the base with melted butter but I added the broken biscuits to the praline, and no complaints were heard.
The Caramel Gooey Layer
The leche layer can be home made or store-bought. I was given a jar of good quality caramel to try by a chum and used the last of it in this recipe, but its easy enough to make if you prefer, I was short on time and this worked well.
Then add a layer of freshly sliced banana.
Pipe the ice cream-cream from above, starting at the outer edge working inward in a circular motion. Awkward to do if you are at an angle, straight above is easiest and gives a better finish.
Serve to people that you love, when time short. Or if the wheels are falling off your day, eat the lot yourself!
