I was recently invited to have dinner with some new friends and when I offered to bring something they requested banana cream pie. I agreed, then I panicked since I had never made banana cream pie and actively dislike it. I really wanted to impress my new friends so I did some experimentation and came up with this recipe that can be made by bakers of any skill level and will turn even banana-cream-pie-haters like myself into believers!
For each step in this recipe I have included an easy option and a more complex option. If you’re pressed for time, this pie can be assembled in about 10 minutes, although it needs to chill for a few hours before serving. It’s great to bring for parties, everyone will be impressed!
