I’ve mentioned before that banana cream pie is my favorite ever! So when I knew I needed to make a pie for Pi Day (3.14) I knew that a twist on banana cream pie would be the perfect solution! Adding caramel to the pie takes it to the next level without adding too much difficulty.

I started with my simple banana cream pie recipe. A quick and buttery homemade graham cracker crust, topped with banana slices, caramel, and vanilla banana pudding, and whipped cream for good measure. Drizzle each slice with a little more caramel for decoration if desired.

I kept this pie recipe simple, by using pudding mixes for the filling. And to add the caramel goodness, I melted wrapped caramels with a little heavy cream to thin them just a little.

  1. We made this a week ago, and it turned out pretty good. But make sure you eat it pretty much instantly. A few days later the caramel had completely turned to liquid and the bananas were basically black. Our fault for waiting I guess, but there’s just me and my wife and we didn’t want to consume like 1000 extra calories every day for four straight days haha. We only got like two pieces each before it turned to soup. So if you make it, make it for a large group of people and serve it immediately.

    1. Great reminder Ben! Every cream pie I’ve ever made turns soggy after a few days unfortunately. So I definitely always try to make it to share :)

  2. Is the coolwhip really nessesary, we can’t get it over here i. Europe

    1. I’d recommend using homemade whipped cream instead if you can get your hands on some heavy cream, but otherwise you can leave it out. It just adds some extra good creaminess!
