This is a recipe I created in honor of Joan Hayes, the founder of Chocolate, Chocolate and More–a blog dedicated to all things chocolate. Sadly, Joan passed away in October, leaving behind three young children (she was the same age as me).
Although I never met Joan, I know the kind of recipes she liked, and I’m sure she would have loved this one: it’s a quick, easy to make dessert which contains not only chocolate, but caramel and cream. It’s fabulous!
You may recall, I recently posted my own version of a traditional Banoffee pie, which I’d been wanting to share with you for ages. Well, when I made the pie, I couldn’t help but imagining another layer on top of the caramel: a rich chocolate ganache. After tasting this version, I like it even more than the original, and it looks more spectacular, too!
You won’t even believe how simple this is to make. If you use a ready-made pie crust and already caramelized condensed milk, there’s almost no cooking involved! Just slice bananas to arrange on the bottom of the crust, pour on the caramel, then the ganache.
Then all that’s left to do is to top it with freshly whipped cream. You don’t even need to pipe it if you don’t want to, and you can cover the entire top if you like; easy-peasy! Sprinkles are also optional.
