Banoffee Pie, my style


0

There are a load of banoffee pie recipes, and many of them using dulce de leche, that’s not easy to buy in some place.



Plus, the homemade one is not easy to make (and I think it’s too sweet for my taste too). So when I really want to make the banoffee, I had to create the recipe by myself and I choose to make it from caramel sauce rather than dulce de leche. 
For caramel sauce, if you never make it before, don’t be afraid, it’s not that’s hard. Just waiting patiently until the sugar turn into amber color without stirring it (just tilt the pan until the sugar melt). And pour the hot whipping cream slowly, and carefully, that’s all. With this way you will get very delicious caramel sauce. But if you don’t want to make it by yourself, melt the caramel toffee with water is another choice (well, I don’t give you this recipe because it’s not easy to control the taste of the toffee from different brand ^^”).
You may think that there are so many work to do, but you can prepare each step in advance. Making the sauce and ganache 2-3 day before is OK, just return them to room temperature before assembling the pie. 
Because this pie is very rich, serve it with a cup of hot drink is highly recommended ^^.
