Banoffee Pie

A long time ago I had banoffee ice cream, I think it was from Häagen-Dazs but it could have been Ben and Jerry's also. Later I found out it was based on a pie and I made one yesterday.
It was a big hit and not as filling as we'd expected, even my brother loved it and he's kind of picky with new things. Here's how I did it:

Banoffee Pie

1 tin of condensed milk (400 gr)
150 grams of digestive biscuits
75 grams of butter
3 large bananas
250 ml whipping cream
some dark chocolate to grate over the pie

Put the can in a pan filled with water and boil it for 4 hours, make sure that the can stays submerged all the time, otherwise the can may explode! Let it cool down. The milk has turned in to toffee.

Put the biscuits in a ziploc bag and hit them with a rolling pin until you have only crumbs left.
Melt the butter in a pan, add the crumbs and spread this mixture evenly in a pie tin. Let this cool down in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Spread the toffee over the crumb crust.

Peal the bananas and slice them, spread over the toffee layer.

Top this with whipped cream, I added a little icing sugar for sweetness and grated dark chocolate on top for decoration.
This is the end result.

I have never heard of this but it looks yummy, I'm going to give it a try. I married a southern boy and wonder how he will like this.
