Banana Pie Supreme...Loosen Your Corset!

Mammy: Oh now, Miss Scarlett, you come on and eat jess a little, honey!

Scarlett: No! I'm going to have a good time today, and
do my eating at the barbecue.

Mammy: If you don't care what folks says about dis family I does!
I is told ya and told ya that you can always tell a lady by
 the way she eat in front of folks like a bird.
And I ain't aimin' for you to go to Mr. John Wilkenson's and
eat like a field hand and gobble like a hog!

Scarlett: Fiddle-dee-dee!
Ashley told me he likes to see a girl with a healthy appetite!

Banana Pie Supreme
6 T Cake Flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 3/4 cup whole milk
2 slightly beaten egg yolks
1 1/4 t pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup whipped cream
3 bananas
Shaved Chocolate
Baked 9- inch pie shell

Mix together flour, sugar and salt in top of a double boiler. Add milk and cook over hot water, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Pour a small amount of mixture over egg yolks, beating vigorously. Return to double boiler and cook two minutes longer, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, cool and then add the vanilla. Chill. Fold in the whipped cream and arrange sliced bananas in the pie shell. Cover with the cooked custard and continue to layer until all is used with custard being the top layer. Garnish with banana slices, whipped cream and shaved chocolate.


  1. Wow! I think this pie would require more than just loosening one's corset. Sweat pants for sure!

  2. My darling husband used to request this pie quite often. It is from a very old Southern Living I had back in the early 1970's and I had it marked, "hubby loves this one!" It was like discovering an old friend....hope you give this a try...it is Y-U-M-M-Y!! Estelle's is making it this weekend!


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
