Banoffee Pots with Salted Caramel – total indulgence!

These Banoffee Pots were so good, oh my gosh! Salted Caramel on its own, eaten with a little spoon from a glass jar is enough to swoon over! Combine it with ginger biscuits, bananas and cream to make little banoffee pots and you  could be in serious trouble or a state of total indulgence! Trouble only if your New Years resolution was to lose weight, but hey, come on, let’s have one more naughty treat together, shall we?



I have made Banoffee Pie before, in fact I gave it a coffee twist to make Cappacino Banoffee Pies, so why write about it again? Three reasons basically:

1. I asked hubby which of my recipes is his favorite so that I can make it for him on his birthday! I did not expect to hear Banoffee Pie, but he is the man of the hour, so banoffee pie it is!

2. We are still at our holiday house and I wanted to just make a quick version of the banoffee pie, hence the crumbed ginger biscuits (leftover from Christmas)

3. I need a delicious treat for my RSG listeners to start off 2013!


The star of these Salted Caramel Banoffee Pots is indeed the salted caramel! I know you can use the tinned caramel if you are in need of a sweet fix and tinned is all you have, but homemade salted caramel is just so much better and in these Banoffee Pots totally sublime! I would in fact recommend that you double up the recipe and keep the caramel in a jar in the fridge…… if you can controll yourself and not sneak to the fridge every half hour to have a spoonful, the salted caramel is perfect for:

– drizzling over piping hot flap jacks

– use as a dipping sauce for grilled pineapple for a delicious dessert

– warmed up and drizzled over ice-cream

– decorating cakes or cupcakes

Salted Caramel

makes about 300 ml

1/2 cup WHITE sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2  teaspoon fleur de sel (or coarse kosher salt)

Place the sugar in a pot and allow to melt. Once the sugar starts to caramelize, watch the pot carefully as it burns very quickly.  When the sugar has caramelized into a lovely golden color, remove the pot from the stove and start to beat in the butter and cream. Keep stiiring until it thickens. Add the salt and cool.


Banoffee Pots

to make 8 individual servings

300ml salted caramel

250 ml cream whipped

16 small ginger biscuits – crushed to coarse crumbs

3-4 bananas – click here and see how to prevent bananas from turning black!

Simply layer all the ingredients in the small glasses, beginning with a little salted caramel and ending with some cream and a final drizzle of caramel! Make in advance and serve with tiny spoons!

Tomorrow 3 January is my hubby’s birthday!! Luckily for all of us there is one day in the year when everybody has to fuss over you and treat you a bit! “Well tomorrow is our turn to treat you, Dad to a day of fun and family time! Thank you for all you do for us, being a super dad and a wonderful husband! You inspire is, help us and love us  all so passionately and for that we are forever grateful! “

“We love you dad!!”

    Dit lyk heerlik wil net weet sal dit werk met gekookte kondensmelk? of sal dit nie dieselfde smaak nie?
