Variation: Sarah's Banoffee or Banoffi Double Chocolate Pie Tutorial
Thought to have been invented at the Hungry Monk in 1972, Banoffi Pie (originally known as Banoffee Pie), itself began life as the offspring of a banana and some toffee. The pie recipe, including the same and then topped with whipped cream and coffee grinds was devised by Ian Dowding and Nigel Mackenzie, and was often prepared by chef Lucy Baldwin.
For my rendition, I use a graham cracker crust and first line it with chocolate ganache for more flavor! Besides, when cutting the pie, chocolate ganache will not crack the same way melted chocolate, used to line pie crusts with, will.

It has a wonderful pie crust made of grahams, a layer of chocolate, bananas and espresso whipped cream. I don't like whipped creams, but this one is to die for. It's so light, and tasty. This recipe is also very easy to make, and is ready to serve in no time."
