WAS going to make banoffee pie but I don't think the dc will like it - is there anything else I could make (not involving cream?) Thanks!!

add it to a large tub of whipped double cream, stick it in the freezer and hey presto, the next morning you have caramel ice cream!

Eat it with a spoon straight out of the tin. Better still is to eat it with some ginger snaps.

Millionaires shortbread - best thing ever.

haven't tried this recipe - or any other. I eat other peoples!

You can also make it with a crushed biscuit base - like a cheesecake - which is lovely too.

I am getting some cravings (said Marjorie Dawes style) from this thread.

Dip slices of apple into it
Spoon it over vanilla ice cream
Make cheesecake squares

Or I have a recipe somewhere for Toffee Apple Pie, which uses the already caramelised stuff. Can dig out if you want it.

Here it is, obv ignore the first bit where you caramelise the condensed milk:

Toffee Apple Pie

For 6

2 x 397 ml tins condensed milk
8 Granny Smith apples
100g unsalted butter
1 tbspn caster sugar
juice and zest 1 lemon
1 x 284ml carton double cream
toasted falked almonds for decoration

For biscuit base

300g digestives
100g melted unsalted butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Put unopened tins of condensed milk in a large casserole dish, cover with water and bring to the boil over a high heat. Preheat oven to 140c/Gas 1. Cover casserole with a lid and place in the oven for 3 and a half hours. Cooking the tins this way ensures they don't boil dry. Set aside to cool overnight.

To make base, whizz biscuits in food proessor to fine crumb. Transfer to mixing bowl add butter and cinnamon and stir. Press mix into 25cm loose bottomed tart tin and place in fridge.

Peel and core apples, cut each one into 8. Melt butter in pan over low heat. Add apples and sugar and cook until golden brwon and just softening but keeping their shape. Stir in lemon zest and juice.

Open tins of cold boiled condensed milk and spoon toffee mixture onto the biscuit base ( use a warm spoon that you keep dipping in a mug of hot water to prevent sticking ). Arrange apples evenly over the top.

Whisk the cream in a large bowl until just thick, then spread over the apples. Keep in the fridge until needed, then remove tart from tin and sprinkle almonds on just before eating.
