Banoffee Tiramisu

Posted on

Inspired by Banoffee Pie, this tiramisu features layers of coffee-soaked sponge fingers with gooey caramel and banana slices. It’s topped with a mascarpone-style filling and crunchy biscuits, capturing the essence of a Banoffee pie. My version is both egg-free and dairy-free, and incredibly easy to make.

To begin, soak sponge fingers in coffee mixed with my gooey 3-ingredient caramel. Layer banana slices on top with crushed biscuits and a creamy mascarpone-style filling for that classic Banoffee taste and texture. This twist on a beloved dessert is made without eggs and dairy-free ingredients, offering a delightful new take you must try!
