BANANA CUSTARD PIE, EGGLESS

Photobucket

Banana custard pie is so easy to make yet the result always taste so delicious. It is often served as light dessert during the summer months but can also be enjoyed them as a  special treat on Easter or Valentine's Day.

If  you want, an egg can be added to the custard. Fill the pastry only 3/4 full since it will create a mess if it's overflowing. Besides an individual mini pie, you can also use your 8 in pie dish.

If you love the tropical taste of banana baked in a pie, you will really love this banana custard pie. Try one today!

CRUST

1 1/2 C all purpose flour
1/2 C plus 2 T cold butter
1 T sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3-4 T ice water
4 medium banana sliced

METHOD

Combine flour, salt, sugar in a mixing bowl. Add butter, using your finger tip crumble until it resembles fine bread crumb. Add ice water a tablespoon at a time until a dough is formed. Chill 30 minutes.

CUSTARD

1 C milk
2 T sugar
2 T custard powder
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

METHOD

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, whisk until smooth then strain.

TO ASSEMBLE

Preheat oven @ 180 C and butter muffin/tart pan. Divide the dough into 9 balls. Press each ball into tart/muffin pan pressing the sides and bottom. Cut off excess dough. Prick bottom with a fork. Fill each pie   with banana slices, pour custard over the banana, 3/4 full.  Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on pan 5 minutes. Transfer onto rack to cool.

Looks yummy!
Can I replace ice water with cold milk? Do you need to roll flat before filling into muffin pan?
I do not have pie dish so how many muffin pie can make with your recipes? (mine is medium size muffin)

This sounds delicious. Easy, too. I always have instant custard and this idea can be used when I have too many bananas ripening at the same time.

This is such a unique sounding recipe! Thanks for sharing it with us. I can imagine that the texture is divine..

Treat and Trick said...

Yin,

You can replace water with cold milk. For this recipe you'll get 9 pieces and rolling out is such a great idea, use a cookie cutter to cut out round, slightly bigger than your muffin pan. Hope this helps..

Tiffany...custard powder is made of cornstarch, coloring and flavoring. Most popular brand is "Bird's" which is easily obtainable from your supermarket near you...
