Banoffee pie/ How to make banana pie from scratch/Banoffee pie using toffee sauce made from boiling condensed milk in pressure cooker/No bake banoffeepie

Banoffee pie is  classic English dessert made from crumbled crackers with butter or a pastry as a base followed by bananas and a generous layer of Dulce DE lech or toffee sauce made from boiled condensed milk.It is undeniably an easy to assemble and no bake dessert that caters to every age group.The butter enhanced base  along with gooey toffee sauce and banana create a riot of flavours in a bite.

The flavour enhances as the pie matures to second day . so make it ahead a day before you are going to serve and pop it in the refrigerator.Always use fresh firm bananas, over ripe  ones give a sluggish colour to the pie.This recipe uses the easiest way of making toffee sauce by using a pressure cooker.
Banoffee pie can be assembled in a casserole or a spring form tin.I serve it as individual portions as desserts served in glasses or as mini pie render a feeling of 'specially crafted with love' .Its one of our family favourites and probably the easiest one to make .
