My second challenge for KBB#5, since I´ve joined Indonesian Baking Club (KBB). I bought only 3 mini tart tins with diameter about 12 cm, so I made only a half of the recipe below. I don´t have any problem to make the pastry. When I started to make filling, upppsss......I had no brown sugar in my kitchen. Hmm...the filling should to be brown, caramel of white sugar can help to get similar colour. Yessss..... I get it and taste good but still too sweet for me!

Step by step How to make Banoffee Pies
Pastry: combine the flour, butter and sugar in the food processor and process until well mixed. Then mix in the egg youls and process in small bursts until the mixture appears crumbly. Add the water a little at a time. As the crumbs get larger, turn the motor off and check that the pastry will come together when pressed between your fingers. Turn the mixture on to a clean board and work very gently into a ball. Refrigerate for 30 minutes ( me: 1 hour).
Roll out the dought to line 20-22 cm flan or loose bottomed tart tin, prick the base of the pastry with fork several times. Set aside for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line the base of the pastry with baking paper and beans, bake blind for 12-15 minuter or until the pastry turns golden brown. Remove the paper and beans. Return the pastry base into the oven for 5 minuter (me: 10 minutes) or until hte base becomes dry.
Filling:Place the butter and sugar in a non-stick pan and heat gently until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Bring to he boil and simmer for one minute, stirring continuously using a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat and add the milk and condensed milk. Return to the heat and bring to the boil. Allow to gently bubble for 4-5 minutes, strirring continuously until the mixture thickens and turn a light golden brown. Cool slightly.
Cut the bananas and put them on the base of the pastry. Pour in the caramel mixture. Leave to cool then chill for at least 2 hours. Serve topped with the whipped cream, spooned or spread over the caramel, and grated chocolate. Makes 4-6
