  • You can prepare this dessert the night before and keep the cream in an airtight container until you are ready to serve. Just cover the biscuit base, caramel and bananas with Cling Wrap
  • Substitute the biscuit base for shortcrust pastry if you already have some leftover in the freezer
  • Use a spring form tin as you can loosen the edges and lift it off without damaging the pie
