    Banoffi Pie (England)

    1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    1 cup butter
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    3 teaspoons ground ginger
    1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    2 bananas, sliced
    2 cups heavy whipping cream

    Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter or margarine, and ginger until well blended. Press mixture into a 9-inch pie plate. Cool in refrigerator.

    Use one of the following three methods to prepare the toffee:

    Oven Method
    Pour sweetened condensed milk into 9-inch pie plate. Cover with aluminum foil; place in larger shallow pan. Fill larger pan with hot water. Bake at 425 degrees F for 1 hour or until thick and caramel-colored. Beat until smooth.

    Stovetop Method
    Pour sweetened condensed milk into top of double boiler; place over boiling water. Simmer over low heat for 1 to 1/2 hours or until thick and caramel-colored, stirring occasionally. Beat until smooth.

    Microwave Method
    Pour sweetened condensed milk into a 2-quart glass measuring cup. Cook on 50% power (medium) 4 minutes, stirring briskly every 2 minutes until smooth. Cook on 30% power (medium-low) 20 to 25 minutes or until very thick and caramel-colored, stirring briskly every 4 minutes during the first 16 minutes and every 2 minutes during the last 4 to 10 minutes.

    Pour toffee into pie crust. Allow to cool.

    Slice bananas over toffee.

    Whip the cream stiff, then spoon it on top of bananas. Refrigerate before serving.
