From Connie Griffin at Hope Lodge. This is the best banana cream pie you will ever eat. check the reviews for different ways to go on this. the crust is dead easy , and adds a lot to the recipe. i like banana pudding also .
For the perfect whipped cream use only powdered sugar and make certain to freeze your beaters and bowl for about 15-20 minutes --- the addition of the cornstarch will create more body to the whipped cream and will hold up better.
This makes a large cake, perfect for a pot luck or a family gathering. It is a fairly flat cake--ends up less than two inches high after you have added the toppings. This recipe came from my sister-in-law in Chicago. I had a piece at a family reunion dinner and couldn't leave without the recipe! Yum Yum!
I'm still on a chestnut kick. This recipe is from Nigella Lawson. I love the flavor combinations she comes up with. The cook time includes 1 day refrigeration, because this needs to be made a day in advance.
