Description

Sweet and tasty pie with banana, caramel, cream and digestive biscuits.

In this recipe, I make a simple caramel filling with butter, brown sugar and sweetened condensed milk. You can use dulce de leche instead, but I like being able to affect the caramel more. It's not particularly difficult to make it yourself, but of course it's a bit messy so you have to be prepared for that.

The pie dough I make is quite firm, which I like better when I make it in a larger springform pan (24 cm and thus a slightly thinner), but if I use a smaller springform pan, I would probably have reduced the butter by about 25g and maybe added one more digestive biscuit as I otherwise suspect it will be a bit too firm.

As a topping, I used ready-made chocolate shavings as it is convenient, but I have seen many recipes where you instead crush a little daim over which sounds very good.

I made the base and the caramel sauce and left it in the fridge until it was time to serve, but the pie keeps quite well for a few hours in the fridge. It is fine to eat it the next day as well.
