Top2 digestive biscuits3 bananasIcing sugar200m cream1tsp vanillaChocolate for decoration


  • Crush the biscuits and mix in the melted butter. Press into a loose bottomed cake tin.

  • Make the filling by putting the sugar and butter in a pan and bringing to the boil.

  • Once it has come together, add the condensed milk and return to the boil. Simmer for around 2 minutes until it turns a nice caramel colour.

  • Pour on top of the biscuit lined tin and set for at least 2 hours.

  • Slice bananas and squeeze half a lemon over them. Crumb a couple of digestives over the top of the bananas (this will stop them from slipping) and layer them over the caramel.

  • For the topping, combine the icing sugar with the vanilla in a bowl, before adding the cream and whipping into stiff peaks.

  • Spoon cream on top of the bananas and decorate with more chopped bananas and grated chocolate.
