Dairy Free Millionaire’s Shortbread Banoffee Traybake Recipe #bloggersbakealong

Dairy free millionaire's shortbread banoffee traybake recipe #bloggersbakealong

As the Great British Bake Off is starting again on Wednesday, I have decided to join in with the #bloggersbakealong. The idea is to watch The Great British Bake Off each week then to choose what we would like to bake (either using a recipe from the programme or using it to inspire my own recipe) from the following three challenges:

  1. A signature bake,
  2. A blind challenge or;
  3. A showstopper.

This week, we are recreating a bake from the last series.ย  I have chosen Frances’s Millionaire’s Shortbread Banoffee Traybake to be inspired by.ย  Due to being unable to eat dairy, this recipe will be made so that my daughter and I can enjoy it too.

This is our Dairy Free Millionaire’s Shortbread Banoffee Traybake, inspired by Frances Quinn’s recipe from The Great British Bake Off.
Ingredients
  • For the shortbread
  • 200g Stork (block)
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the topping
  • 150g Stork (block not spread, the spread contains dairy products)
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • 50g golden syrup
  • 300g Condensed coconut milk (we made our own)
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 250g dark chocolate
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C fan, 160C/350C/Gas 4. Place some greased lightly baking parchment in two round cake tins.
  2. Put all the shortbread ingredients in the food processor and pulse to form a smooth dough.
  3. Divide the mixture into two and press it firmly into the base of the tins. Prick all over with a fork and bake for 25 minutes, until lightly golden brown and firm to touch. Leave the shortbread in the tin to cool.
  4. For the caramel, place the Stork, sugar, syrup and condensed milk into a saucepan.
  5. Stir over a low heat until the Stork has melted. Boil gently for 10 minutes, stirring all the time.
  6. Stir in the mashed banana when the mixture is thicker then leave to cool.
  7. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.
  8. Pour the caramel over the shortbread bases. Leave to cool slightly and pour the chocolate over to cover.
  9. Place in the fridge for at least an hour.
  10. Slice into squares and enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of homemade lemonade!

    How is it dairy free? You’ve used butter in the base..

    • dillydrops

      It is dairy free because the Stork blocks are not dairy based. (The spread in a tub contains dairy but the blocks don’t). Stork isn’t butter. I hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚
