Banana cream pie

My daughter and I were attracted by this yummy banana cream pie when both of us enjoyed a TV food show. I immediately google for the recipe and prepared this dessert straight away...

I have no problem to prepare the pie crust but i'm not sure how to prepare the filling, after checked through in few blogs, I saw Elin did this before, thus I requested the recipe from her. Thanks Elin for kind sharing.  The normal banana cream pie is serve with whipping cream, but I replaced the cream with ice cream since the weather here is hot.

I never used to like banana cream pie until Annie started making them. They taste even better with the bananas we can get here in Kuching. Unfortunately we can't good whipping cream around here.

Now I'm hungry for some pie! Thanks for sharing.

The Sudden Cook said...

Look GREAT - for blind baking u can also use cutlery (spoons, forks etc) to press down the dough if you don't have beans and prefer not to use rice. Just be careful when u remove from the oven - the cutlery will be hot.

Deeba PAB said...

Me Likey!! That is one gorgeous pie Sonia...way to go! How inspiring!!
