Ingredients

  • 300 g Gingernut Biscuits Crushed (See note 1)
  • 100 g Butter Melted (See note 2)
  • 397 g Can of Caramel (See note 3)
  • 3 Bananas Peeled and slices (See note 4)
  • 300 ml Double cream Whipped (See note 5)

Optional

  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract (See note 6)
  • 2 tbsp Icing sugar (See note 6)
  • 100 g Dark chocolate (See note 7)

Instructions

  1. Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter and press firmly into a tin using the back of a spoon. If you have time, chill for 30 minutes.

  2. Spoon the caramel into the biscuit base and smooth over. If you have time, chill or pop into the freezer for an hour or until you are ready to serve.

  3. Top with bananas, then the whipped cream (mixed with vanilla and icing sugar if you are using).

  4. Add chocolate sprinkles if you're using them and serve.

Recipe Notes

Note 1 - Gingernut Biscuits

You can use any other type of dry biscuit you fancy, but you may need to adjust the amount of butter to get the right 'sandy' consistency as some will be more 'damp' than others. Also, the ginger flavour does really add some additional taste which works so well!

Note 2 - Butter

You can use unsalted or salted depending on what you have. I actually like salted in this to add a savoury element. If you have used a food processor to blitz your biscuits you may need a little less butter as when they are very fine, they absorb it more.

Note 3 - Caramel

Be sure to buy the canned CARAMEL not condensed milk! Also, you can make this recipe with either one OR two cans of caramel, depending on how large you want the end result to be. 

Note 4 - Bananas

If you want to stop your bananas going brown and sticky, and also add a 'tang' you can toss them in a little lemon juice before putting on top of the pie.

Note 5 - Double Cream

Whip until firm but still floppy and soft. It should hold it's shape but not be starting to look 'lumpy'.

Note 6 - Vanilla and Icing Sugar

You can add these to the cream before whipping if you have them. They add another flavour element but they aren't vital.

Note 7 - Chocolate

I like to finish with some dark chocolate, curled using a vegetable peeled on top. You could use sprinkles or cocoa powder if you prefer. Again, not vital but a nice touch.
