Banoffee Tarts (Banana Toffee Tarts)

A week that is not so fun and not so relaxing for me!! Due to my "delayed" bathroom renovaion and a "too" short school break made me feel like time passes too fast and I've done nothing for my blog!! And then school will starts tomorrow...:(
Well...luckily I got a day to gather with my friends yesterday for a tea-party with loads of delicious food...that satisfied me alot!! And I've managed to baked something too...^^".

Banana Toffee Tarts adapted from the magazine "Her World" in March issue. I got this recipe from this magazine while I'm having a hair wash last few weeks at the hair saloon....hehe!

It was named...Banoffee Tarts! I like the name given to this tarts....classy!!

I've never made any toffee before, and this my first. I have totally no idea how will it taste and how it looks like until I opened the can of condensed milk after steaming for 2 hours.

My expression looks good!! (at that moment)...LOL!! And there are some left overs in the fridge now which I think I should make a chiffon cake with it..:)

My favaourite tarts base from my blueberry cheese tarts recipe. It does goes well with the bananas fillings!

I can't get any sweet and nice bananas so I just bought whatever they have at the nearby store. So if you are making this, make sure you'll get some good quality bananas.

Recipe for this tarts (yells 15 tarts):
15 frozen mini tarts base or my blueberry cheese tarts base.
1/2 tin (225ml) condensed milk
4 large bananas
125ml whipping cream
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

~ To make the toffee: carefully immerse the unopened tin of condensed milk into a pot of water.Bring to boil and simmer for 2 hours. Carefully remove from the hot water and cool completely.
~ Bake the tarts base well and cooled.
~ Whip the cream, sugar and vanilla until thick.
~ Spread the cooled toffee over the tart base using the back of a teaspoon.
~ Slice banana and and layer on top of toffee.
~ Spread cream over bananas.
~ Repeat and end with a dallop topped with sliced bananas and a sprinkle of cinnamon powder.

** Toast some almond flakes and sprinkle on top of tarts for some crunch. (which I didn't...;p)

I used some light fresh cream for this tarts as I don't want it to be too heavy or too sweet. I find it was just nice, and my daughter prefer it without the cinnamon powder..;)

They are really good to go with a cup of english tea, just to bring out the flavour of the tarts.
I think it will taste nice with other fruits, maybe peaches or pears..:)

Try out and let me know then...^^
