Chocolate Banana Cream Pie Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 3 hours | Active Time: | Makes: 6-8 servings

My husband loves banana cream pie, and I love chocolate, so I decided to combine the two and the result was better than either one of us could imagine. It is delicious, and has tuned out to be a favorite.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inch), baked
  • 4 squares (1 ounce each) semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 2 medium firm bananas, sliced
  • Whipped cream and chocolate shavings, optional
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add milk and cream until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly, about 2 minutes. Add a small amount to egg yolks; mix well. Return all to the pan. Bring to a gentle boil; cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in butter and vanilla.
  1. Pour half into the pastry shell; cover and refrigerate. Add chocolate to remaining custard; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Do not stir. Arrange bananas over filling. Carefully spoon chocolate custard over all. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate shavings if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
