What is one supposed to do when the need for banoffee pie arises when at work? Or on the bus?? Or just when one can’t face washing a plate after dessert???

There is only one answer to this issue, stick the Banoffee Pie a jar! Creating a sort of decadent parfait out of a classic British pud is just the kind of thing I love to spend my time making (and eating) on my days off, and I could not recommend this banoffee pie in a jar more! I can definitely see myself making more desserts in jars.

This version is super easy and has all the familiar charm of everyone’s favourite cream-topped dessert, it involves very little effort but provides a great outcome! The recipe makes 3-4 jars of banoffee pie, depending on the size of your jars, I use old jam jars for mine.

You’ll need to start by making all the individual layer components for the jars. Using a food processor or simply a freezer bag and a rolling pin, bash the digestives into crumbly rubble, making sure to leave a few chunky crumbs for extra crunch.

Melt some butter and mix it through the biscuits. (No one can resist tasting this mixture) (No, that wasn’t a challenge)

Empty a tin of Carnation caramel into a bowl, add some salt and mix until smooth.

Slice your bananas into little coins.

Whip your cream with the vanilla extract until fairly stiff peaks begin to form.

To assemble, begin by spooning 2-3 spoonfuls of the biscuit mixture into the jar.

Add 2-3 spoonfuls of the caramel and smooth it out a little.

Top the caramel layer with a few slices of banana.

Add 2-3 spoonfuls of whipped cream on top and smooth it out a little.

Repeat the layers of biscuit, caramel, banana and cream until the jars are full. You may not need to use up all of the ingredients, it depends on the size of your jars!

Grate over some chocolate or dust over some cocoa powder then either close them and refrigerate until you need it or just dive right in!

These gorgeous desserts are my mum’s absolute favourite, a real sweet treat!

    How long will these last in the fridge before they go off?

      Hi Hollie! These would last 2-3 days in the fridge I would say, the cream is the only thing that would really go off, the rest might just get a little soft. Keeping the lids screwed tight onto the jars would help them keep fresher. Hope that helps!
