EASY Banana + Custard Pie {Recipe} + Pyrex is 100 {Giveaway CLOSED}

When we go on a road trip and come across a little country bakery, we have to make a pit-stop. You see, my husband is on a perpetual search for “the perfect” sausage roll. I can take or leave a sausage roll, but a delicious custard tart… now that is a thing of beauty.

Easy banana custard pie - slice

Admittedly, I have never made a custard tart before. They always seemed to hard to make and just too easy to buy. A girlfriend of mine baked on on the weekend, and texted me a photo. Do you and your friends do this too? Take and send photos of dishes you’ve prepared and which you are a just little bit proud of?
Deb’s custard tart inspired me to use my new Pyrex Pie Dish to make a version of my own. Mine includes a shortcrust pastry (which makes it a super quick dessert) and my secret ingredient… banana!

EASY Banana Custard Pie - Title

Easy Banana + Custard Pie {RECIPE}
2 sheets of shortcrust pastry (I had the Pampas 25% reduced fat variety in the freezer and they worked perfectly fine)
1000g low fat milk
100g corn flour
4 eggs
200g sugar
2 tsp vanilla paste (or extract)
2 bananas
Nutmeg

Start by pre-heating the oven to 180 degrees celcius.
Place the pastry sheets in the the pie dish, pressing the edges together where they overlap. Shape the pastry along the sides of the pie dish and trim along the top edge.
Use a fork to poke a few holes into the base to let out any air bubbles.
Bake the pastry base for approximately 12-15 minutes – until it’s golden. Let it cool while you prepare the custard filling.

Filling
Slice up the banana and layer it on the bottom of the pastry shell. I used 2 bananas, for a single layer, but you could certainly add more bananas.
I made my custard in my Tefal Cuisine Companion (because it’s fast and very easy), but to make a basic custard, whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla in a mid-size saucepan on a medium heat. Once combined, add the corn flour and milk. Stir, stir, stir until the custard thickens up nicely.
*** If using packet custard powder, follow the directions on the side of the pack to make approximately 600ml of custard.
Pour the custard over the banana layer until it is just under the top edge of the pastry shell.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Take it out of the oven and sprinkle some nutmeg on the top.
Bake for a further 15 minutes.
Let it cool and then refrigerate… or be like me and let it cool just enough that it sets and then cut out a warm slice to eat while watching Masterchef Winking smile

  14. Oh yes - I love a good custard tart too (and vanilla slices - must be the custard that I love!). We love pies in our house, with apple pies and pumpkin pies being the two most favourite. I really like my Pyrex pie plates - the all-the-way-around-handle is fabulous (as is the size - nice and deep!).

    Of course, after reading your post I want to make a custard tart now (though I think I will cheat and use my egg custard mixes!!).

  23. My family loves it when I make a family shepherds pie for dinner. It's a great way to use up the gravy beef that comes in our bulk beef purchase, and the pie ends up with chunky, delicious beef innards topped with a slightly crispy potato top. I love it but I make do with toss away pie pans, a Pyrex one would be awesome! (eliseellabban@hotmail.com)

  47. With this cold, wintry weather I'd make a Beef, Mushroom and Red Wine pie with Parmesan mash. I make a similar custard pie to yours, but use pear halves instead of bananas, I cut them not quite through in 1cm intervals and slightly fan them out in the dish before pouring over the custard mixture, looks very pretty :)
