This heavenly version of banoffee pie is ridiculously easy to make. Although the preparation time is very long, most of that time involves the condensed milk caramelising in the pan without your supervision. Hope you enjoy it!

6 hours | 3 hours prep

1 pie

1 ready-made graham cracker pie crust (or make your own crust for a pie about   25cm across)
(400 ml) can sweetened condensed milk
3 bananas
300 ml cream
hot chocolate powder or cocoa, for dusting

1.  Place the UNopened can of condensed milk (don't open the can!) in a saucepan and
     cover with water.
2.  Bring the water to the boil then reduce slightly and let the can boil covered for 2
    1/2 or 3 hours (if you're patient enough to wait for 3 hours it is better).
    IMPORTANT- Don't ever let the saucepan boil dry.
3.  Keep checking up on it and adding water if necessary.
4.  Remove the can and wait a few minutes before opening it very carefully in the sink.
    The condensed milk will look like creamy brown caramel.
5.  Stir the caramel in the can with a fork to remove any lumps, then pour into your pie
     crust and let it cool, then refrigerate till cold.
6.  Slice bananas thinly and lay them on top of the toffee filling.
7.  Whip the cream and spread it over the bananas.
8.  Dust the cocoa or powdered drinking chocolate on top for effect, using a sieve.
