Banoffee Millionaire's Shortbread

How can you make millionaire's shortbread even better? Add bananas! This banoffee millionaire's shortbread is a real treat.


I made this batch of banoffee millionaire's shortbread before the Great British Bake Off Caramel Week episode aired. If I had watched the episode first I would have baked the shortbread bases separately or waited for them to warm up a bit rather than cutting them straight out of the fridge. As you can see they aren't the prettiest of biscuits but luckily that has no effect whatsoever on the taste.

I also made an error on mt Tesco delivery. One that I didn't notice before I started baking. Rather than ordering Carnation condensed milk so I could combine it with golden syrup and butter to make the caramel, I ordered Carnation caramel. This wasn't a total disaster, but it did mean that the caramel was a little softer than I hoped. I did add some butter to it which I think helped a little.

At the end of the day, however, they tasted good and were gobbled up by the family. Cries of "Oh you can make this again." were heard from my eldest. I did have to stress that I couldn't make it that often as it is loaded in calories and I have no willpower and would happily scoff the lot! I certainly just can't stop at one bite!
