Caramel Banana Custard Pie

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C.

To make a caramel, melt sugar in a pan until it is a light golden brown colour. Add the sliced bananas and coat in the caramel. Turn off the heat.

Pour the caramel bananas into the par-cooked tart case and spread evenly, then sprinkle cinnamon on top.

For the custard, whisk the sugar and egg yolks in a saucepan. Add the flour and salt and combine over medium heat. Gradually add milk, whisking continuously. Bring to the simmer for 2 minutes then remove from heat, add the vanilla essence and continue to whisk gently until it reaches a smooth custard consistency.

Pour the custard over the caramel bananas and bake at 180°C for 15 minutes.

Allow to cool completely. Serve with a dollop of cream or creme fraiche.
