This banana and custard cake plays on different textures, four layers make up a dessert that is inspired by American banana cream pie, now popular with us too. The first layer, the base, is the only one cooked in the oven, then the bananas, the custard and the whipped cream. The American original is a tart, a crunchy shell that welcomes a banana pudding and a generous layer of whipped cream.

Another famous banana-based dessert of the American tradition is banana bread, an excellent solution for using very ripe bananas left in the pantry.
