Banana Pie With Almond Cream

Top view of a rectangular Banana Pie

Banana pie with almond cream is an unexpected combo that will make you rethink your over ripped banana. The mashed bananas are sandwiched between a shortbread crust and sweet almond cream.

I love making this recipe because it is a perfect for any season of the year so while I am waiting for the fruit to be ready to be picked up in the tree, I want to share this recipe with you.

Travel-Baking With Banana Pie

Do you have recipes that are special to you and your family?  There is the Linzer Torte that I would do every summer when I used to live in France.  I would pick up the figs in the tree in the morning and bake this tart in the afternoon.  Rarely there would be any leftover.

Since then, when I do this recipe… While it is baking in the oven, I can close my eye and travel back home.

There is also the spice cake or the French Basque chicken. I have so many ways to travel back to France through the smell in my kitchen and my taste buds.

What is your recipe that your love cooking and it is from your Mom? I am sure you have one.

I highly recommend making my recipes using a scale but for your convenience I have also converted the recipe using this website.

    Hi again, Melanie!
    You’re from the south of France! I stayed in Bordeaux for 1 year many years ago (it feels strange to say that!) when I was a student. I LOVE the sound of this banana tart. We have something similar in England called a Bakewell tart, but it really is a fantastic idea to add bananas. Pinning this for sure.
    P.S. J’adore tes photos!
