- One ready made sweet pie crust. You could, alternatively, use ready made sweet shortcrust pastry rolled out into your pie dish, or even make your own crust.
- One tin of Carnation caramel;
- Two or three bananas, chopped into thin slices;
- One carton of whipping cream, whipped.
Assembly is as simple as loading all of your ingredients into your pie crust. I put the tin of Carnation caramel as the first layer, directly onto the crust, followed by the chopped bananas and then topped with the whipped cream. It makes for a wonderfully decadent looking dessert but without the time and tears. I look forward to using this when friends come for dinner or on a special occasion weekend.
This pie was inspired by a recipe found in a Next cookbook I received for Christmas. It called for a home made custard and I just didn't fancy making anything that was too long winded. Thus this 'recipe' (if you can call it that seen as there's no baking involved!) was created.
