Banana Cream Pie is a much-loved dessert predominantly made from bananas, egg yolks, vanilla essence, milk, sugar, butter and flour.
The ingredients are mixed together to form a custard-type filling, which is poured over a layer of bananas that sits on the bottom of a shell.
The shell is either a piecrust made from shortcrust pastry or from crushed digestive or ginger biscuits. The pie is often topped with a large dollop of whipped cream or meringue made from the leftover egg whites.
As desserts go, this one is extremely high in calories, fat and sugar, so take care not to consume too much at once, although due to the fact that banana cream pie is so delicious, that will be extremely hard to do.
