Banana, Toffee, Chocolate, Vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream; what else could you ask for? This is my cake version of the Classic Banoffee Pie. It is vanilla butter cake, layered with banana toffee filling, coated in vanilla swiss meringue buttercream with chocolate jimmies and topped with dark chocolate ganache.
Here's the recipe for the yummy banana toffee filling:
Banana Toffee Filling
- 2 ripe bananas (pealed diced and tossed in lemon juice)
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
- 114g butter (1 stick)
- 110 grams brown sugar
- 2 ounces dark corn syrup
Banana Toffee Filling:
Combine sweetened condensed milk, butter, brown sugar and dark corn syrup in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Once, the butter has melted and sugar dissolved bump up the heat to medium high and simmer the toffee until thickened 5-8minutes. Allow the toffee to cool off the heat and then toss in banana chunks.
This recipe is enough to fill two 6 inch 3 layer cakes
These coffee toffee chocolate chip cookies combine coffee toffee pieces, chocolate covered espresso beans and semi sweet chocolate chips. The toffee pieces melt and become gooey molten pools of caramel when the cookies are baked. The best part is the pieces that melt out of the sides and still remain a little bit of crunch.
