National Banana Creme Pie Day | Banana Creme Pie with Honey Whipped Cream and Pecan Brittle for #SundaySupper

Welcome to National Banana Creme Pie Day and Sunday Supper’s celebration of Fat Tuesday (a little early)! Today we are celebrating Mardi Gras with decadent dishes. Personally, that’s how I celebrate the majority of the year…

Today’s food holiday is perfect for Sunday Supper’s focus for this week. Banana Creme Pie is nothing if not decadent, but then I add a honey whipped cream and pecan brittle to it. 

Even for a person who has a public disdain for bananas, I’d have this pie any day of the week. And, it’s so easy to make! The pecan brittle is so delicious that you’ll have to play keep away (from yourself!) until you are ready to assemble the pie.

Ingredients
Banana Creme Pie
  • 1 (9-inch) pre-made graham cracker crust
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 large egg yolks, slightly beaten
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Pecan Brittle
  • 1 cup pecans

Instructions
Banana Creme Pie
  1. Mix flour, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Add milk gradually, stirring until smooth. Cook on medium-high until mixture boils, stirring constantly.
  2. Mix a small portion of the hot mixture with egg yolks (to bring up the temperature of the eggs without scrambling them). Add new egg mixture to the saucepan and boil for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract and butter. Cool to room temperature.
  4. Place bananas in bottom of graham cracker crust. Pour cooled custard over bananas and place in refrigerator to set for 1-2 hours.
  5. Top with honey whipped cream and pecan brittle.
Honey Whipped Cream
  1. Place bowl of stand mixer in freezer for 5 minutes. Pour heavy cream in the bowl, and beat for 5 minutes. Gradually increase the speed to medium until soft peaks have formed.
  2. Add honey and vanilla, continuing to beat until firm peaks form. Spread over cooled banana creme pie.
Pecan Brittle
  1. Preheat oven to 325*F. Spread pecans on a baking sheet and bake about 5 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, and coarsely chop.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and water. Cook on high for about 8 minutes, or until a deep amber color has formed. Remove from heat and stir in the pecans.
  3. Pour on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and allow to harden, about 20 minutes.
  4. When ready to assemble pie, chop brittle up and sprinkle on top of whipped cream.

    Well dang, this combination of texture and flavor sounds like perfection to me! I wouldn’t mind having a slice…or two. ;)

    Banana creame pie is seriously one of the best desserts in the world. The one I had at Emeril’s was insane! Yours looks incredible, especially with the pecan brittle on top. Yum!
