Irresistible Banana Cream Pie
Welcome to my Banana Recipe
I have been making this delicious dessert for around 30 years. It is quick, easy and contains ingredients you would likely have in your cupboard. Although the muscovado sugar is a healthy alternative (and much nicer in my opinion) to the highly processed white sugar and gives banana cream pie a natural caramel look and a richer taste. The fresh cream on top can be replaced with dream topping or an equivalent powder that can be stored in the cupboard and mixed up with fresh milk when you need it. The digestive biscuits can be replaced with any plain type of butter biscuits or I have even made it with a pastry base. The custard is a cheat's version of egg custard, as you simply throw everything in together, but is better than the blanchmange/custard mixes that you can buy.
So get on your apron and begin the day with making this delicious dessert, which will be better for chilling until you are ready to eat it. At the last minute, there will be no stress- you just take your wonderful banana cream pie from the fridge and serve to the delight of your family and friends.
