How to Make Banana Cream Pie
Making banana cream pie from scratch creates a filling that is richer with a fuller flavor than the kind that comes from a box. I’m sure you’ll agree it’s not difficult and its well worth the little extra effort involved!
Banana Cream Pie Filling:
- Heat the sugar, cornstarch, and milk in a saucepan.
- Temper the eggs: When the milk mixture is steaming hot, slowly spoon a bit into beaten eggs while stirring. Add the egg mixture back into the pan and cook until thickened.
- Transfer to a bowl, press a piece of plastic wrap over the surface to prevent a skin forming and refrigerate.
