Fresh out of the oven caramel-coloured, and topped with whipped cream to serve, this pie is bound to be a hit among everybody, be it an intimate occasion or a bigger celebration.

Steps

01.

To make pastry, process flour, sugar and butter until crumbly; add egg yolk and water, process until ingredients come together. Knead dough on floured surface until smooth. Wrap in plastic; refrigerate 30 mins.

02.
Grease 24 cm round loose-based fluted flan tin. Roll dough between sheets of baking paper until large enough to line tin. Ease dough into tin; press into base and side. Trim edge; prick base all over with fork. Cover, and refrigerate 30 mins.
03.

Preheat oven to 200 C (180 C fan-forced).

04.

Place tin on oven tray; cover dough with baking paper, fill with dried beans or rice. Bake 10 mins; remove paper and beans carefully from pie shell. Bake a further 10 mins; cool.

05.

In a medium saucepan, combine condensed milk, butter, sugar and syrup; cook over medium heat about 10 mins, stirring, or until mixture is caramel-coloured. Stand 5 mins; pour into pie shell, cool.

06.

Top caramel with banana; top with whipped cream.
