1/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter (if using unsalted, add 1/2 tsp salt here)
Banana Pudding Pie From Scratch Ingredients
4 large ripe – but firm – bananas
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 egg yolks
3 cups whole milk
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of butter
Whipped Cream Ingredients
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Banana Pudding Pie From Scratch Directions
To make the graham cracker crust, begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the 6 tablespoons of butter, add 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup of sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix this all together , and press firmly into a 9 inch pie dish. Bake for about 12 minutes until golden, then cool completely before filling, this will take about 30 minutes.
For the banana cream pie filling, slice 4 ripe but firm bananas into 1/4 inch slices. In a saucepan, whisk together 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of cornstarch. Add 3 egg yolks and 2 eggs, and whisk vigorously until the mixture is smooth, making sure to get along the sides of the pan. Mix in 3 cups of whole milk and 3 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Cook this over medium heat for about ten minutes, whisking often, until it begins to simmer and you see gentle bubbles along the sides and the pudding begins to thicken. Reduce the heat, and continue to simmer for about 3 minutes, whisking the entire time. Then remove from heat and let this cool for about 5 minutes.
Add 2 tablespoons of butter, and whisk it into the pudding until it’s completely melted. Add the sliced bananas, gently folding them into the pudding.
Pour the pudding into the cooled crust, smoothing it evenly to the sides. Chill this pie for at least 6 – 8 hours or overnight.
To make fresh whipped cream, beat 2 cups of heavy cream with 1/4 cup powdered sugar, until soft peaks form. Top the pie with whipped cream and serve.
