Sometimes you really need an easy dessert that takes minutes to prepare, no baking or any special skills, and of course is absolutely yummy! These Banoffee Dessert Pots are all of those things, and the most work you need to do is whip up some cream, open a couple of tins and slice up some bananas. Despite being simple to make, they look super impressive and if you brought these out at a dinner party you’d be sure to get some ooohs and aaahs from your friends!
Step by step…
In the serving glasses I layered up the crushed biscuits, then some caramel.
I added sliced bananas, then a layer of custard.
Then I whipped up some cream and piped it on top.
Some more slices of banana and a sprinkling of chocolate and the Banoffee Dessert Pots were ready to serve!
What caramel sauce should I use?
My favourite caramel sauce to use is my Homemade Caramel Sauce, it’s rich, smooth and absolutely divine! You can also easily add salt to it to make it into a salted caramel sauce. If you don’t want to make your own, it’s quite easy nowadays to find a good quality ready made caramel (or salted caramel) sauce in the shops or online. I have used Tesco’s Finest, Bonn Maman and Carnation Caramel in the past with great results.
And they were so yummy, all the layers work so well together and the biscuits add a crunchy texture too. If you’re a banoffee pie fan then you will adore these little pots of deliciousness!
