Banana Caramel Pie by Barb Leopold

On a cold winter’s day, this banana caramel pie with cream just hits the spot …. and blows the calories!

Recipe:

Bake some shortcrust pastry (home made or purchased) in foil cases (or you can make one large pie). Then in a heavy based saucepan, combine:

400g can sweetened condensed milk
75g butter, chopped
½ cup (100g) firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tablespoons cream

Cook it all up over a medium heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring all the time as it will stick to the bottom if you don’t. Let it cool a little.

While caramel is still warm, scoop it into pastry cases. Chop some banana, sprinkle with lemon juice to stop it going brown and pile onto caramel. Finish with some whipped cream and dust with icing sugar (optional).

This is a very sweet and delicious Aussie dessert, much loved by country cooks, who always have a can of condensed milk in their pantries, ready to whip out and be cooked up into this rich dessert.

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills of South Australia which are a constant inspiration to me in my photography. As an observer of nature and the world around around me, I find many subjects here which I try to portray in an artistic and interesting way. Please contact me if there are any of my images you wish to purchase or otherwise use.

    This one is a bit cruel Barb – I havn’t had my dinner yet. I will definitely have to knock off and have something to eat now. I don’t have anything that looks this good though.
