It might look a mess but it tastes delectable!

Serves 4
Prep 15 mins
Cook 5 mins


  • 3/4 cup pecans
  • 3 tbs caster sugar
  • 1 cup caramel top and fill
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes, crushed
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 1 cup thick vanilla custard
  • 8 meringue nests, crushed
  • 4 large Cavendish or Sugar Bananas, thinly sliced


For the candy pecans, rinse the pecans. Place into a non-stick frying pan with caster sugar. Cook, shaking the pan over medium heat for 5 minutes until pecans are dry. Tip onto a tray lined with baking paper to cool.

Spoon caramel into a bowl, whisk until smooth. Stir in salt.

Whip the cream to soft peaks. Fold in the custard, then use a balloon whisk to whisk until thick.

Drizzle a shared serving plate with a little caramel. Spoon over half the custard cream. Top with half meringue nest and half the banana. Drizzle with a little caramel. Repeat the layers. Top with sugary pecans. Serve.


Tip: You can replace the top and fill with homemade or bought salted caramel.
