A Banana Recipe

Welcome to my banana recipe, which I have been making for around 30 years. It is quick, easy and delicious and contains ingredients you would normally 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.

Enjoy this banana recipe!

What Are Bananas Made Of?

Bananas (especially raw, as in this recipe) are very low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium and a good source of dietary fibre, potassium, manganese and vitamins C and B6.

Why You Need A Banana Tree - Ripening bananas

As they ripen, bananas give off a gas called ethylene, which can spoil other fruit if stored together. To solve this problem, bananas are best stored separately. This is why banana trees are ideal, as they keep them well away from other fruit.
