The Original Hungry Monk Banoffi Pie Recipe
|Invented at the Hungry Monk in 1972, Banoffi Pie (originally known as Banoffee Pie), is still as popular today as it was the first time it appeared on the menu. There have been many imitations as far and wide as Russia and the United States; it is even rumored to be Mrs Thatcher’s favourite pudding! Below is the original Banoffi Pie recipe as it first appeared in‘The Deeper Secrets of the Hungry Monk’ in 1974.|
|Banoffi Pie Recipe (to serve 8-10 people)12 ounces uncooked shortcrust pastry
1.5 tins condensed milk (13.5 ounces each)
1.5 pounds firm bananas
375ml of double cream
Half a teaspoon powdered instant coffee
1 dessertspoon caster sugar
A little freshly ground coffee
The secret of this delicious pudding lies in the condensed milk.
Remove the tin from the water and allow to cool completely before opening. Inside you will find the soft toffee filling.
Hint – Banoffi is a marvellous “emergency” pudding once you have the toffee mixture in your store cupboard. We therefore suggest that you boil several cans at the same time as they keep unopened indefinitely.
