Easy & Quick Chocolate Pudding & Banana Pie Cake - Perfect for the summer

Updated on June 19, 2013

Pudding Pie Cake - Perfect for Hot a Summer Day

Temperatures are rising quickly and since I have a small kitchen I try to bake as little as possible as my oven can raise the temperature in my kitchen a lot - transforming it into a sauna (at least I have nice skin). What better dessert to make than a no bake cake (although I did bake it just a little bit).

We eat a lot of salads and soups in the summer, as no one is in the mood for something heavy, and these dishes just scream to have a dessert served right next to them. I try to keep it simple and this is my latest creation - chocolate pudding banana pie cake. Why a pie cake? Well because I can't really decide if this was a cake or a pie - the crust is more a pie thing, the layers and shape have a cake feel to them. In the end it doesn't matter, it will get eaten anyway.

So this easy and quick cake recipe is perfect for the summer, well it's a perfect cake to celebrate June actually as it has dairy in it (it's National Dairy Month), it has fresh fruit in it (National Fresh Fruit and

Vegetable Month), it has cookies & pudding (National Candy Month). You could almost say this one represents June.

Ingredients

  • Instant pudding (2 bags)
  • Milk (4 cups)
  • 3 Bananas
  • Butter (about half a cup
  • 125 g)
  • Butter Biscuits (about 7.1 ounce
  • 200 g)
  • Sugar

Instructions

  1. 1. Crush the butter biscuits - you can ether use a blender or put them in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin (they crush nicely and easily). When done put the crumbs into a mixing bowl.
  2. 2. Melt down the butter, either by letting it melt by itself (if it's hot outside it won't take long) or by putting it in the oven at a low temperature. Add melted butter to the cookie crumbs and mix it. Mix it until you can shape the mixture. If you feel you need to add a bit more butter add it (some cookies need more, some less).
  3. 3. Put the mixture into a cake pan (be sure to grease it before use), push it down with your hands so it gets a firm shape.
  4. 4. This is not mandatory but you can put the crust to be into the owen for 10 minutes at about
  5. 180°C/ 350°F. This way the butter will spread even more evenly and the crust will get a crunch.
  6. 5. Slice up the bananas and arange them on the crust.
  7. 6. Follow the instructions on the bag of instant pudding, use a bit less milk than necessary to make the pudding more firm. When the pudding is done pour it over the crust.
  8. 7. Let the pie cake cool and it's ready to serve!

Leibniz are my favourite butter biscuits. They literally melt in your mouth. They also have a whole wheat version (and many others) that works great as a pie crust.

I don't like to use a blender for crushing cookies as I have a feeling something might get broken (it probably wouldn't but still). It took me less than 5 minutes to crush the cookies. As you can see by the mess though crushing them manually can be messy if the bag has a hole where it shouldn't.

I advise you use a bigger bowl to mix the cookies with butter (I used the small one because it looks nicer on the photo).

You could also use whole wheat cookies (I prefer them personally but my family doesn't). They make a delicious crust. You can also use different fruits, I used bananas because they were at hand but I would prefer strawberries or oranges as I think they would work even better.

Ready to be eaten!

      @lesliesinclair: I think home-made cookies would work too, especially if they are buttery.

      I like the way you display the how-to photos. Summer really is a time for cool and easy foods. I suppose you could even substitute your own homemade cookies too.
