Banoffee Squares

A Delicious version of the ever popular Banoffee Pie ! These Gooey, Caramel Banana Cream bars are so delicious – you would not want to share !

Banoffee Squares

A few weeks ago, I came across an Australian magazine recipe book in a book store. And one of the first recipes my eye caught was these Banoffee Squares.

Needless to say, I am totally in love with this book ! It is specifically dessert recipes – bars, slices and squares.

I have made it my personal mission, to make each and every one of the recipes in the book. This far, I have made around 6 or 7 of the recipes and all were instant hits.

However, I did adapt some of the methods here and there and specifically the size of the oven pans. If you use a too large dish, you always run the risk of a thin, not sturdy crust (to begin with).

I always prepare the crust, or sometimes the filling, and see exactly how much I have to work with before deciding on a pan size, as I like chunky treats more than a thinnish type.

We had some left which I stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator and it kept well until the next day.

Longer, I can not say as we had finished them all by then. The magazine does however mention it should be fine for up to two days – that is.. if you have any leftover by that time !
