Banana Cream Pie

Banana Cream Pie
Crispy table tart with almond frangipane filling topped with a layer of light pastry cream and fresh banana chunks

The top layer is banana custard, with banana fruit chunks in between the sweet bottom crust layer. There is also a sweetened white cream covering the outer circumference of the pie.

The bottom crust is sweet but not too hard. The top layer of the custard gives the whole pie a very nice and smooth texture. The bottom crust gives it a good support, which is of mixed texture. The banana fruit is however not to my liking as it lacks the solid feel to it. However towards the end of the dessert, the sweetness starts to overwhelm you.
Overall it is a good dessert to end your meal with.
