These banana and dulce de leche cups are inspired by the banoffee pie, one of the most classic and popular British cakes in its pastry. It consists of combining layers of crushed biscuit, dulce de leche, chopped banana and cream. A tremendously easy and fast recipe that only takes 15 minutes to prepare.

They are the solution for those occasions when we have little time for the kitchen and they have a format in a glass that allows us to put the finishing touch to a celebratory lunch or dinner without filling up. In addition, the banana and dulce de leche cups do not need an oven and can be prepared several hours in advance, even the day before, and stored in the fridge until serving time. A great dessert.

How to make banana and dulce de leche glasses without oven

Difficulty: medium

Total time: 15 minutes

Elaboration: 15 minutes

We beat the cream, which must be very cold, with some metal rods and, when it begins to take shape, add the icing sugar and cream cheese. We continue beating the whole until assembling. We pass to a pastry bag with a star nozzle (optional).

Crush the cookies in a mortar or with a rolling pin. We heat the dulce de leche together with the milk and stir well until homogenized to make it more manageable (30 seconds in the microwave will be enough). Peel the banana, cut four discs that we reserve to decorate and chop the rest into cubes.

We assemble four little glasses forming layers as follows: crushed biscuit, dulce de leche, diced banana, crushed biscuit, dulce de leche and whipped cream. We decorate with chocolate shavings, cocoa powder or similar and top with the banana discs that we have reserved. We keep in the fridge until serving time.
