It is best to refrigerate banoffee pie for at least 4 hours before serving.

Banoffee pie is best serve cold.

How do I store the leftover Banoffee pie?

Store banoffee pie in an air tight container and place in the refrigerator.

How long can I keep Banoffee Pie?

Banoffee pies is best eaten within 2 days.

Why?

First, the dulce the leche will be slightly runny, if we keep the banoffee pie for longer.
Secondly, we are using whipped cream as banoffee pie topper, hence it is best to consume within 3 days.
Third reason is the banana!
Banana will oxidise and will not look appetising hence why we must consume banoffee pie as soon as possible.
