Banana Split Pie

This is a great dessert. Flavored and delicious, it’s made from dough, vanilla pastry cream, banana slices and whipped cream; decorated on desire and served alone or along with a cup of coffee, tea or even champagne (depending on time of day, mood, age and occasion). It’s easy to make, with handy ingredients, and just as easily disappear from the table, because it’s so tasty that all adults and children love it. And perhaps the most important thing in this dessert – except that it’s cooked fast and easy, it’s delicious and fragrant – is that, with just a few elements which you have already in the kitchen or can be quickly prepared, you’ll get an amazing pie.




Ingredients Banana Split Pie

  • The base (dough) – can be made from puff pastry, biscuits (placed as such or crushed and mixed with some melted butter), pâte sablée (tart crust) or sponge cake. I had two premade (and already baked) puff pastry sheets and I used them with great commitment.
  • Crème pâtissière – it’s the classic vanilla pastry cream.
  • Whipped cream – made from sweetened and whipped heavy cream.
  • Bananas – ripe, peeled, cut into round slices and placed one next to each other
  • Decoration – this dessert can be decorated with nuts, almonds, chocolate (grated or melted), fruits (fresh, candied or dried) etc.




Quantities Banana Split Pie

For a 28/30 cm pan I used:

  • 2 sheets of puff pastry dough (one to the bottom and the other above, crumbled)
  • pastry cream prepared like here from 5 egg yolks, 800 ml milk, 150 g sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 50 g cornstarch
  • 4 bananas
  • 300 g whipped cream




Directions Banana Split Pie

I put a puff pastry sheet onto the pan. I spread the pastry cream. I arranged the sliced bananas into one layer, then I spread the whipped cream. Finally I sprinkled the crumbles of the second sheet on top of the cake.This dessert must be kept to the fridge at least 2-3 hours before serving.
