Instant Wish

June 27, 2024

When I was a kid, I asked my mom to make me banana cream pie, even though it was not Italian! It was a popular dessert with all my friends and I wanted some. Here is Mom’s recipe and she cheated by using instant banana pudding mix that only required milk to mix and thicken it! Her twist was to add grated orange zest and coconut to the mix. What really sold me on this dessert was the puffy baked meringue on top of the pie. She made my wish come true, instantly.
