Peanut Butter Banoffee Eton Mess

Peanut Butter Banoffee Eton Mess - Peanut Butter Dulce de Leche, Meringues, Cream, and Banana {Katie at the Kitchen Door}

A mash-up of two classic British desserts – Eton Mess and Banoffee Pie – made a little bit American with the addition of peanut butter. Layers of sticky-sweet peanut butter dulche de leche, shortbread cookies, whipped cream, banana, and meringue make a delicious dessert.


  • 1 cup of dulce de leche, store bought or homemade
  • 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 8 oz. of shortbread cookies, crumbled
  • 4 cups of whipped cream
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 24 small vanilla meringues, store bought or homemade


  1. Heat the dulce de leche in a microwave for 30 seconds in a microwave-safe bowl, just to warm it up. Repeat with the peanut butter. Both the peanut butter and dulce de leche should be warm enough that they mix easily – if not, heat for a little longer. Stir together until evenly combined.
  2. Take out 6 glasses – stemless wine glasses work well. Place a layer of crumbled shortbread cookie in the bottom of each one. Top with a large spoonful of whipped cream and a layer of sliced bananas. Drizzle a tablespoon of peanut butter dulce de leche on top. Gently crush a few of the meringues and sprinkle the crumbled bits over the top. Top with more cream, more dulce de leche, and another layer of crumbled shortbread. Finish with a final layer of cream, a few pieces of sliced banana, one whole meringue, and more dulce de leche. This is more of an art than a science, so layer the way you want to!
