Banoffee Sundae. An International Incident Party

This month you are all invited to our Sundae International Incident Party and as always, it's hosted by the lovely Penny from Jeroxie Blog.

I love ice cream, and who doesn't, right?  For this month's theme, I was dreaming up all sorts of combinations and concoctions.  I was feeling ambitious.  However, as usual, time got the better of me and so I needed to do something quick and easy.

For my contribution this month's theme I made a Banoffee Sundae.  A banoffee pie is an English dessert containing bananas, toffee and cream in a pastry or biscuit base.  This makes for a great combination for a sundae.

I don't have an ice cream maker but after some research and brain storming, I came up with a way to make a delicious no-churn banana ice cream.  It's very easy and it only uses 3 ingredients.  It freezes well.  Just remember to take the ice cream out of the freezer 30 minutes before you want to eat it so it softens a little.

Banana Ice cream recipe
5 ripe bananas
1 x 395g sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup cream

1.  Peel and chop the bananas.  Place in a snap lock bag and freeze over night.
2.  Whip the cream till soft peaks.  Set aside
3.  In a food processor, place the frozen bananas, condensed milk and cream.  Whiz till the ingredients are well combined and the bananas have been pureed.
4.  Pour into a container and place in the freezer.  Stir the mixture every hour for 2-3 hours. Freeze for at least 4-5 hours or even better, overnight.

Butterscotch recipe
150g brown sugar
150ml cream
125g chopped butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 mins.

Hot Fudge Sauce recipe
140ml cream
30g unsalted butter
45g coco powder, sifted
70g caster sugar
60g soft dark brown sugar
pinch of salt

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and stir over a gentle heat until the mixture is melted and smooth.   Let it cook for 2-3 minutes.

To assemble the sundae.
No churn banana ice cream
butterscotch sauce
hot fudge sauce
biscuits of your choice, crushed
fresh bananas

In a bowl or dish, place 2-3 balls of the banana ice cream.  Drizzle the butterscotch sauce and the hot fudge sauce all over ice crea.  Sprinkle the crushed up biscuits. Garnish with slices of fresh banana.

High 5 for banana ice cream and I love that sauce.

This looks amazing! I'm just recently learning to like bananas, but still mostly just in dessert form. :P Bananas with butterscotch? Yep, that's my kind of fruit!

Looking Very Yummy!!! I'm not a huge ice cream person but I gotta say your sundae just draws me in and I wish I could reach out to grab hold of it and eat it!

Butterscotch and Hot Fudge Sauces slathered all over banana ice cream and fresh bananas make for a pretty cool -or is it HOT - sundae! Such lovely flavors, Cherrie.

I'm behind with visiting the participant sites with this challenge but enjoying them a lot. Everything is so unique and for me, anything with the word toffee works for me.
