What is Banoffee?
Banoffee is a combination of banana, cream, and soft toffee (in my case, boiled sweetened condensed milk). The dessert is of British origin and is quite young. The debut was made in the English pub The Hungry Monk in 1972.
In most cases, this delightful banana dessert is made as Banoffee pie, but serving in cups/glasses is another impressive presentation of the dessert.
Why banoffee pie cups recipe works
- This dessert is perfect for an entertaining party or a romantic dinner.
- Orange flower water brings an additional flavor to whipped cream.
- Banana – cookie crumbs – whipped cream is a rich combination of different textures.
- Cooked sweetened condensed milk delivers a beautiful caramel taste.
How to make banoffee cups step by step
Divide three-quarters of the mixture between three cups/glasses, placing cookie crumbs at the bottom. Add 1/2 banana slices in each cup/glass (photo 2) and one tablespoon of cooked sweetened condensed milk.
Whisk whipping cream with brown sugar and orange flower water. Using a pastry bag with your favorite tip, pipe the cream or spoon it on top of the sliced banana, sprinkle with the remaining crumbled shortbread cookies. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
- Use store-bought Shortbread fingers or replace them with another kind of tea biscuits, such as Digestive Biscuits, for example.
- Switch orange flower water for vanilla extract if you prefer.
- Follow this recipe to cook sweetened condensed milk or use a store-bought Carnation caramel.
