Team recipes - Banoffee pie

July 12, 2019| Our Community /

A recipe from one of our very own team members for this decadent, delicious English dessert.

Serves: approx 12

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Fridge Time: 30 minutes


  • 85 g butter, melted

  • 170 g digestive biscuits,

  • crushed

  • 380 g Nestle Top’ n’ Fill,

  • stirred to soften

  • 2 bananas, sliced

  • 300 ml thickened cream, whipped

  • 25 g dark chocolate, grated


Process biscuits in a food processor until finely crushed. Place biscuits in a mixing bowl and add melted butter, mixing until well combined.

Transfer the mixture into a round shallow tart/quiche dish and press firmly into the base and sides using a metal spoon. Place in the fridge to cool for about 30 mins. Take the base out of the fridge. Peel and thinly slice the bananas, then layer over the base. Stir the Top’ n’ Fill to loosen. To make it easier, use a knife dipped in boiling water to spread over the banana layer.

Whip the cream and dollop over the top, ensuring the cream comes right to the edge of the dish. Finely grate the dark chocolate over the top of the pie. Slice into wedges to serve.
