This Banana Cream Pie has a three ingredient graham cracker crust followed by an easy homemade vanilla pudding topped with fresh whipped cream. The end result is pure heaven and a banana lovers dream come true!! My husband and daughter are huge banana fans. I mean off the charts crazy! This dessert, Banana Fritters, Banana Bread, and Easy Banana Cake are just a few of our favorite recipes.

How to Make Banana Cream Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the graham crackers, melted butter, and sugar. Press into a 9 inch pie plate and bake in the oven for 7 minutes. Once cooled layer bottom and sides with banana slices.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat whisk together milk, cream, sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is simmering and slightly thickened. In a medium bowl whisk the egg yolks together. Remove 1 cup of the hot mixture and in a slow stream whisk it into the egg yolk mixture. In a very slow stream whisk the egg mixture into the saucepan cooking until bubbling and thickened whisking constantly. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla and butter. Cool for 15 minutes whisking several times so a skin does not form. Pour the pudding into the crust over the bananas. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  4. Chill bowl and beaters in freezer for 20 minutes. Add whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla to the bowl. Beat on low until mixture starts to increase in volume. Turn to medium high and beat until stiff peaks form Spread or pipe over chilled pie. Garnish with banana slices and reserved graham cracker crumbs.
