>TWD: Banana Cream Pie


Amy of Sing for Your Supper picked Banana Cream Pie for this weeks TWD-recipe. I was excited, because this was a pie that I had actually made before and although it was a different recipe now I would have something to compare it to!

Last October I made my first Banana Cream Pie, that time it was for CEiMB and Heather from Randomosity and the Girl picked it.

For the pie I took the easy way out and bougth some puff pastry shells. The custard came together very easily: it did start to curdle just a bit, but that was soon solved by with some quick whisking action. After cooling down the custard was a bit too thick, so I thinned it by whisking in some cream as suggested in the P&Q.

This pie tasted okay, but I thought this custard tasted a bit too sugary/cinnamonny/eggy….. I’m not quite sure what it was that made me hesitant….. My dad loved it though!!. I actually preferred the one that I made last October, if you want to give that one a try, go here for the recipe!

Curious what my fellow TWD-ers thought of the Banana Cream Pie?? Check out the blogroll here!
Ow and one last thing: enter my giveaway (I know: another giveaway!!!), deadline is April 10th midnight Dutch time!!!

    >Yum! That looks amazingly good 🙂 What a pity the custard was too eggy but it looks great. I have some bananas, some caramel and some cream in my fridge that’s just dying to be made into something similar! 🙂

    >I think your little pies look so cute Marthe! I was not sure I liked the custard either. I thought it tasted like graham crackers, but it kind of grew on me and by the time I finished I quite liked it!

    >It looks great. I actually liked Dorie’s much better than Ellie’s! I wonder why. The fat content is probably way higher!

    >Wow those tarts are beautiful!

  26. Cathy Says:

    >Oh, it is great to know that you preferred Ellie’s healthier version! I loved Dorie’s, but it is so spectacularly loaded with fat/calories that I couldn’t justify making it too often. I will have to try Ellie’s! Your little tarts look beautiful!

    >Your little tarts are so pretty! Too bad you didn’t love them. I had some issues making my pie, but thought it tasted good. Glad your dad liked it. My parents liked it too.
