-Hi, everyone, I'm Judith with recipe.com, and today, I'll be showing you how to make sweet banana cream pie, fresh, creamy, and delicious. So, the ingredients you will need for this is half a cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of corn starch, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 2 cups of milk, 2 egg yolks, 1 tablespoon of butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 9-inch pie shell, 3 firm ripe bananas, and some whip cream for your topping. Alright, so first things first, in our medium sauce pan right here, we're gonna get that to a medium heat, and we're gonna add in our sugar, our cornstarch, and a quarter teaspoon of that salt, and all of our milk goes in there too. So, we'll give that a good stir. We're gonna bring that to a boil and let it thicken for about a minute. Now, as our milky sugary mixture is thickening up and comes to a boil, make sure you stir it to get it nice and creamy and smooth until done every so slightly. We are going to whisk our 3 egg yolks together. It's gonna give a lovely creamy consistency to our cream pie, and we're gonna add in just half of this milk mixture, and we'll whisk that in there. Then, we'll just put that back into our sauce pan, bring it all together, and we wanna stir that until it gets nice, smooth and creamy for about another minute. So, once that's all in there, we're now gonna add in our butter and that lovely vanilla just gonna give it a lovely hint of sweetness and taste, serve it in until all the mixture comes together. It's nice and creamy. So once that mixture has thickened up nicely, it's got nice and creamy, we wanna get it cold because obviously the sweet in our pie is done without any baking and you refrigerate this and have it cold, so let's turn up together, and we're gonna transfer this mixture into a bowl. Now, meanwhile, we've prepped some ice cold water into another bowl and what we wanna do is just cook our mixture over the ice cold water so that get cold and give it a good stir and stir frequently until it starts to cool down. So, once our mixture has cooled, we're gonna add about 1/3 of this mixture into the bottom of our pie crust here. So, in there goes, you spread that around evenly, a little it more there, and this is gonna be a lovely bottom layer, and we'll have our bananas, and then we'll have the top layer, this cream again, and it's just gonna be delicious, lovely layers of cream and banana. Alright, so, on top of that, we've peeled and sliced 2 bananas, so we're just gonna our bananas now on top of that creamy mixture, Oh beautiful, I can spot that around. What a fantastic dessert, just something to have with your coffee or tea. Alright, so once they are all in there, then we'll put the remaining of our creamy mixture on top of our bananas, and spread that evenly onto the pie, nice. So, sometimes, it helps just to use the spatula just to smoothen that creamy mixture out. So, on it goes, and what I'm gonna do is put some of our remaining banana slices on top of our cream pies. We've got these beautiful layers of banana and cream. So, spread that around nicely. So, the pie is nearly done, which is our last step is to put a pice of wax paper on top of our banana cream pie, put in the refrigerator for about 2 to 3 hours until it gets nice and cold. We'll we've taken our sweet banana pie from out of the fridge. It's been in there for about 2 to 3 hours, so it's set, all done, nice and cold, creamy with both the layers been on there. I've just sliced some fresh bananas to put on top of there, which is absolutely delicious. So, now, you can slice that up, serve it with some whipped cream and that is one beautiful dessert. That is how you make sweet banana cream pie.
