Heavenly Banoffee Pie

A friend bought this to a dinner party and it is just incredible - I urge you all to make it!

You will need:
300g (10oz) butter
250g (8oz) digestive biscuits
175g (6oz) caster sugar
425g (14oz) condensed milk
2/3 bananas
1 tbsp lemon juice
600ml whipping cream
25g dark chocolate

This makes a large pie, enough for 8-10 people. I have halved this recipe for an 8" dish.

For the base:
Melt 4oz butter in a saucepan and stir in the crushed biscuits. Press the mixture into a deep dish & chill in the fridge.

For the filling:
Put the remaining butter and the sugar in a saucepan and heat gently until the butter has melted. Stir in the condensed milk and bring to the boil, then lower the heat and stir for about 5 minutes, until the mixture goes a light caramel colour. Pour this over the base (be careful as caramelised sugar is very hot) and chill until set.

Slice the bananas and toss them in the lemon juice. Place these on top of the caramel. Whip the cream and spread this over the bananas. Decorate with grated chocolate and chill until 30 minutes before needed.

Look at the biscuity, toffee, creamy banana goodness. I'm sure it's one of your five-a-day, right...?!
