This recipe is a cross between banoffee pie and banana pudding with the light texture of a souffle —Norhan Tarek

What You'll Need

  6. Spoon the mixture into the prepared ramkins and fill half way through. Add 1 tbsp of dulce de leche and 1/4 of the crumbled graham crackers in each ramkin then fill with rest of the mixture. Smooth with a palette knife and tap gently to remove any trapped air.
