Banana Cream Trifle....


Amy of Sing for Your Supper chose this week's recipe: Banana Cream Pie. I have been under the weather for the last week, so my lovely sister (who is visiting from Oregon) helped me prepare this recipe for our family.
I had previously read that some people found the custard too thick, and I agree. To remedy this, we folded in extra whipped cream after the custard had cooled completely. (Yum!) We also decided to mix things up a bit by changing it from a pie to a trifle--alternating layers of fluffy custard with chunks of Trader Joe's Vanilla Bean cake, sliced bananas, and more whipped cream. A certain family member (I am not mentioning names) even added some Brandy to give it an extra kick!
Thanks, Amy, for the wonderful choice! I would like to try this again with a graham cracker crust. Now what do I do with the 6 egg whites in the fridge...

I love trifle and creating a trifle from Dorie's recipe is wonderful and it looks great.

Hope you're feeling better.
Sounds super!

Put your egg whites in a baggie and freeze them!

Oooh I wish I'd thought to fold some whipped cream into the pastry cream. That sounds amazing and just right to thin it out a bit.
Vanilla bean cake?....I love vanilla bean anything! So you got the bug from the kids huh? Yikes. Hope you still got a good visit with your sister and a few runs in there too!

It looks delicious! Great idea to fold in some whipped cream to the custard. Mine came out very thick, but the pie still tasted good.
