Banoffee Pie: chantilly or chocolate?

My dear friends, i have a dilemma. You have to help me!

Chantilly or Chocolate Ganache? What do you prefer? I really like both and don’t know what to chose. So this time, I baked two different banoffee pies.

2 versions of banoffee pie: topped with chocolate ganache or with chantilly? By Peregrination Gourmande

I used my perfect crust recipe. It’s called « pâte sucrée ». It’s crisp and holds perfectly.

2 types of Banoffee pie. Both delicious: Chantilly or Chocolate Ganache?
  • 1 can of sweat condensed milk
  • bananas
  • One of my perfect crust pie
  • Chocolate ganache
  • or
  • Whipped Cream
  1. Do you know this magic trick?
  2. Just put one can (closed) of sweet condensed milk to boil for 30min. And you get toffee! Or "milk marmelade" (confiture de lait). This is the best trick I got from pinterest so far. When it's cool, open the can and spread the milk on the tarts.
  3. Cut and add bananas.

And there comes my dilemma! I love so much mixing chocolate and bananas. So I had to try! And I tried the whip cream version too because well… I had to!

What do you think? It seems that my guests were enjoying more the chantilly version. Softer in taste they said, and smoothier.

You can find the recipe of chocolate ganache here. To make the chantilly, I just whipped the cream in the food processor (my dear assistant!).


Please try this peace of heaven and tell me what you prefer. Enjoy!


  • It’s a no brainer Cathy – chocolate AND cream is the only way to go. Was that helpful?!

    • peregrination gourmande

      haha That was very helpful! xx cathy

    • It is. Next time, both i will do. xx ps i don’t know where my last answer to you went of?strange… xx

  • Wow Cathy this Banoffee Pie looks amazing!
    So exciting hearing your enthusiasm for FFF’s I look forward to it every week too.
    I think I’d have to go with ganache as my answer to your dilemma 😉
    That pastry of yours looks absolutely delicious!
    You’ve got me curious to try your tip with the condensed milk now!!! Mmmmmmm
    Thanks for linking up with us here at Fabulous Foodie Fridays, can’t wait to see what you bring to the party next week! xx

    • Try it and tell me. I was surprised of the result but really it’s amazingly easy. I love FFF, it gives me a rythm to write down my recipe and share, that’s a good thing! If not i might be procrastinating… xx

  • Can I have one of each – just for pure research of course 😉

  • They look amazing, I share your dilemma and can’t decide either. I did a pastry class this week so am now keen to try out all things pastry too!

    • It’s more difficult to find quick less than 30min recipes in pastry but some are just so delicious that I’m glad to spend time doing them 😉

  • I think it’s only fair to eat both – they just look too delicious to choose! I really want to try the condensed milk thing but I’m scared it will explode! I have bad kitchen karma…

    • I thought about that too, but it seems to be working ok. When you get the can out of the boiling water, you can see that the cover is a little bit convex ( is that making any sense? not sure about the word). So it seems that it works finally! xx

  • Hmm, what about a pie with both? Banoffee Pie is also one of my all time favourite desserts, so I think I could eat both pies 🙂
