This is a traditional popular pie in Ireland and England. The pie is full of caramel, bananas, coffee flavored whipped cream, and shaved chocolate. It is delicious. What a great dessert for St. Patrick's Day or any special day of the year. It is a fairly easy pie to make. Enjoy :-)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This pie is rich, sweet and topped with the most decadent coffee flavored whipped cream and shaved chocolate. I usually make a cake for special occasions. This pie is a welcome change and looks just as good as any fancy cake! The coffee flavored whipped cream topping would be perfect on puddings.
