So a lot of you have been messaging me to put up something which does not require oven(Had difficult time to think of a dessert which does not require baking, since I am a baker :D). While I was pondering over what should be a simple dessert , one of the friends was visiting home and suggested I make his favorite “Banoffee Pie” and voila , I knew what to put up in my next post. A heavenly dessert which requires no baking and is so easy to make, you will wonder why you did not make it earlier.

History snippet : Banoffie Pie is originally an English dessert invented by  Nigel Mackenzie ,owner of The Hungry Monk Restaurant in East Sussex, and his chef, Ian Dowding.There have been versions of it available now, but traditionally it was a A pie or tart filled with toffee, bananas, and cream.

Nowadays the pie is made in different versions some with a crunchy biscuit base or a pastry base ,having coffee or chocolate or both and topped with chocolate shavings . We are going to use some of it 🙂 So grab your cooking hat and make this for your weekend brunch and impress your friends and family.
