Banoffee Pie Tarts: Easy and No-Bake Dessert
Although I enjoy spending most of my time in the kitchen while cooking and baking my favorite foods, there are moments when I’m just too lazy to prep, set up the oven, and make a big mess in the kitchen. But one thing never changed, I still go crazy for desserts; thus, I’m so thrilled whenever I see recipes that no baking required and fewer ingredients needed. An example of one of those little perks we give ourselves is a banoffee pie tart– because, after all, we deserve it!
Banoffee Pie and Its Origin
But what exactly a banoffee pie is? It was originally a British dessert pie with layers of sliced bananas, whipped cream, and dulce de leche. It has a buttery biscuit base or crust that blends perfectly with the sweetness of ripe bananas, caramel, and whipped cream. Some recipe versions also call for chocolate, coffee, or both. Its name is occasionally written “banoffi,” which means “banana” and “toffee.” This dessert has been known globally, earning a lot of versions and variations over time.
Banoffee pies also come in different forms and shapes. They sometimes serve it as a whole pie, a cake form, layered in a jar, and tarts for individual servings. This is a great option if you want to serve desserts during dinner, parties, or even for personal consumption.
Let’s Make It Vegan
Banoffee Pie is one dessert that easily transforms into 100% vegan. It is because it is only made using a few simple ingredients that can easily be swapped with vegan alternatives. In making the crust, you can replace melted butter with coconut oil and the heavy cream with coconut cream; as for the caramel sauce, you can make a homemade version using brown sugar, coconut cream, and salt.
However, if you run out of time making your ingredients from scratch, you can visit your nearest vegan baking supply store to score ready-to-use vegan alternatives.
These babies are so good that you can finish it in one sitting. However, if you have leftovers, you can store them inside an airtight container inside the fridge for up to 3 days. Remember not to store it very long as the bananas tend to oxidize over time.
