Moist banana cupcakes filled with dulce de leche and topped with whipped chantilly cream ~

Banoffee  pie is a traditional English dessert that combines banana, toffee and whipped cream in a delicious pie. For my cupcake version I used dulce de leche to get a toffee like flavour. You probably already know this, but you can either buy ready made dulce de leche or use condensed milk and try one these methods to make your own. I used condensed milk and went for the oven option as this one sounded the safest! (I already have some lovely burn scars down the right side of my body after I managed to spill a whole cafetiere of coffee down me last spring, so it’s probably not a good idea for me to be playing with anything where there’s a chance of very hot liquid exploding!) My dulce de leche reached a perfect caramel consistency after an hour and a half in the oven.

This cake gets its name partly because of the booze in it, but mostly because it looks like a slightly drunk person put the layers together. Despite my inability to make a perfect layer cake, I still really wanted to share this recipe with you. I was so happy with the way the flavour turned out, it tasted exactly as I hoped – just like a tiramisu, but in giant cake form!

The cake consists of really moist coffee sponge, that’s brushed with a coffee and alcohol glaze and filled with lashings of mascarpone cream, then dusted with cocoa powder. If you love tiramisu/ or love someone that loves tiramisu, you should definitely make this cake!
