Once in a blue moon, I forget things. Forget that I put a load of laundry in the washer only to discover a load of wet clothes still waiting to be dried the next morning. Forget to pack my lunch for work until I’m rushing out the door thinking I’m all ready to go. Sometimes I forget that I made something delicious for you like this Deep Dish Banoffee Pie. Crazily enough, I forgot about it for probably a whole year!

As I was tidying up a few files on my computer this weekend, I came across a file. I’m pretty meticulous about my organization, especially of my pictures. However, I came across a file that was simply numbers correlating to a date from the spring of 2013. Lo and behold, I’d forgotten to label this deep dish banoffee pie as such and it disappeared into my picture folder until now.

Deep Dish Banoffee Pie - FoodBabbles.comThis banoffee pie is truly something special, a pie definitely not to be forgotten. I came across it on Sprinkle Bakes which is one of my all-time favorite websites EVER! I’m sure you’re familiar but if you aren’t you need to become familiar. You’ll fall in love. I adore each creation but this banoffee pie popped out immediately because it had a presence. It’s tall and gorgeous, not to be ignored. My favorite part of her pie was the graham cracker crust scattered with chocolate sprinkles. Ahh!! Love.

I knew I needed this pie in my life if for no reason other than that crust. I changed the buttery toffee filling a bit. Once that smooth, thick toffee is ready it’s poured over ripe bananas then topped with fluffy clouds of whipped cream and more sprinkles. What’s not to love about this pie? I know you’ll just love it.

I definitely love the sprinkles in the crust. Though I am thinking there isn’t much NOT to love about this pie. That filling sounds absolutely amazing!

I have started an entire file “things that I have not yet posted.” It goes back a couple of years, but not all of the pics are post worthy, so they have to be remade. I understand about forgetting to post, though.

Hi.
Is it possible to substitute the golden syrup with anything else?

You can substitute light Karo syrup for the golden syrup. Hope you enjoy it!

Oh my goodness I want this so bad. With my new diet restrictions, I have been trying to figure out how I could make it with minimal sugar. Let’s be real, less sugar on this beauty is just silly……so I will just enjoy your images!!! I first learned about banoffee pie from Donal Skeehan a Irish blogger, and tv personality. Your pie looks amazing! Hugs, Terra
