Banoffee Brownie Squares

Now I love banoffee anything. Pair a banana with caramel and I’m your girl, it’s a flavour I’d choose first out of any other combination. Banoffee pie is a blessing, banoffee cake is a wonder, I’d eat banana and caramel on anything! In fact, I’m planning on making banoffee french toast this weekend as our weekly Quarantine brunch date. There’s one banoffee recipe you don’t tend to see much, Banoffee Brownies. I’m here to rectify that, Let’s take the humble brownie and kick it into hyperdrive! Banoffee Brownies baby, I promise you won’t be able to stop at just one. I certainly couldn’t!

When it comes to brownies there’s a few steps to follow to get the dense, fudgey numbers you see here. One of them is not easy, just a heads up.

First of all, you don’t want to mix your eggs and sugar for too long. Just whisk until fully combined and slightly lighter in colour, around 2-3 minutes. You don’t want to incorporate too much air into your brownies, this will give them a cakey texture rather than a fudgy one. Not that I have anything against cakey brownies, I just prefer the denser version.

Ok, this is the difficult one. Are you ready, it’s gonna be tough. You simply gotta let these bad boys sit in the fridge overnight. You’ll get a solid, fudgy texture from giving the brownies a little bit of time. I know it’s not easy, and they won’t taste any worse if you can’t help yourself and dive in early but that chewy texture you get from resting them over night is just divine!

These Banoffee Brownies are a rich and chewy brownie swirled with a delicious banana caramel and studded with dark chocolate chips. Addictive and delicious!


Units Scale
  • 375g unsalted butter
  • 375g plain chocolate
  • 6 large, free range eggs
  • 350g caster sugar
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 large, over ripe banana
  • 100g Carnation caramel
  • 50g chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 170°C and line a 9″x9″ square tin with baking parchment.
  2. Mash the banana with the back of a fork and in a small bowl, mix into the caramel. Set aside.
  3. In a large heavy bottomed sauce pan melt the butter and chocolate together over a low heat. Allow to cool slightly. In the bowl of an electric mixer whisk the eggs and sugar together until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low pour the melted chocolate into the egg mixture in a slow steady stream, mix until combined. Add in the flour and stir until the flour just about disappears, take care not to over mix at this point.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth out. Spoon blobs of the banana caramel over the brownie batter and marble with a knife and sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until there is just a slight jiggle in the centre of the pan. Leave to cool completely, preferably overnight in the fridge. Cut into squares and enjoy.


These brownies can be frozen for up to 3 months.

Use a good quality chocolate, around 70% cocoa solids for the tastiest results

    I totally agree, banana and caramel make a wonderful combination. Not sure we’d be able to let them sit in the fridge overnight but if they look as good as yours when done I’d consider try to do that.

    I thought I knew about various brownie flavours but have never tried banoffee brownies before, I usually make banana bread to use up ripe bananas think I need to give this a go next time x

    I’ve never been a huge fan of banoffee or anything banana related but I know my fiance absolutely loves it and he would love these. I may have to make these for him at some time then I won’t be tempted to eat them all myself x

    This looks amazing! I’ve been terrified of baking gluten free for ages but I think I will attempt these, as I successfully made GF banana bread this week.

      Hi Laura, I always use Doves GF flour blend in gluten free baking and it gives amazing results. I bet these would adapt perfectly.

    These look delicious, however I don´t like bananas or anything banana flavoured. Could I substitute the banana for apple or pear instead??

      Hi Tracey, you could just leave the banana out and have some caramel brownies.
