If there is a combination of flavors, a duo that defines me, that is banana and dulce de leche, but for you to understand why I say this we have to go back to my childhood, to when I was around 5 or 6 years old. At that time, my mother prepared the restaurant’s pastry in a kitchen that was located in the back of my house, and then they took it to the restaurant. She used to spend a lot of time there, so I too, I could say that I grew up in that kitchen. Matter that one afternoon, on a weekend, so there was nobody working there, mom could not find me, and she thought of looking for me in “La Cocinita” where she found me sitting in the hallway, in the dark, putting a banana in the 20-kilo pail of dulce de leche and with the whole face stained with dulce de leche! And so you could say that my love for this combination began that day haha.
Turning my favorite combination into a cake was a great success! This is definitely one of my favorite recipes on the blog. It may not be the most elaborate or gourmet, nor the healthiest, but it reminds me of childhood, it has many flavors that combined are pure perfection, it is super easy to make and makes those who taste it fall in love! At home it disappeared in less than 2 hours!!!
The pie is made up of 4 layers, it does not requires oven, you only need 6 ingredients, and surely you already have everything to make it or you can get it in the supermarket of the neighborhood.
The crust is made of ground cookies with butter to harden (you can use any vanilla cookie, the crunchier the better). The filling is (drum roll) DULCE DE LECHE AND BANANAS, YES, JUST THOSE INGREDIENTS BUT IT IS THE BEST FILLING IN THE WHOLE WORLD! And finally, we finish with a delicious vanilla cream with a little grated chocolate. And ta-da, a full-fledged bomb ready to eat in less than 20 minutes!
