"This is way better than any banana cream pie I’ve ever had. I liked it with whipped cream, my Hubby and Mother liked the cherry topping. I tried this with 2x the bananas and it wasn’t as good…it was mushy."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Prepare pie-crust, bake and cool.

Step 2

Mix sugar, flour, and salt in a medium heavy saucepan. Slowly stir in scalded milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until mixture thickens and boils 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Beat eggs in a small bowl. Slowly stir in ½ cup of the hot mixture; stir back into the pan. Cook stirring constantly, over medium heat 3 minutes, or until mixture thickens again and mounds softly; remove from heat.

Step 4

Stir in butter or margarine and vanilla; cool.

Step 5

Peel and slice one banana and place in the bottom of the baked pie-crust. Spread half of the custard over the banana. Repeat with another banana and remaining filling. Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator 4-5 hours or until set.

Step 6

Just before serving, peel and slice diagonally the remaining banana and arrange in a rosette on the top center of the pie. Top with one or two spoonfuls of the jubilee sauce and/or whipped cream, if desired. Serve with remaining sauce, if desired.

Step 7

Optional Jubilee Sauce:. Drain syrup from cherries into a 1-cup measuring cup; add water to make 1 cup. Set cherries aside. Mix sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Stir in cherry liquid. Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce thickens and boils 3 minutes. Stir in rum extract or flavoring and cherries. Cool.

This is a super good banana pie! It's not overly sweet, and it has just the right amount of bananas to still taste creamy. I really like the cherries on top too. I used frozen cherries instead of canned. Very good!
