While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
How appealing! March 2 is National Banana Cream Pie Day.
Look up "creamy" or "dreamy" in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of this pie perfection. (OK, not really, but it should!)
Banana cream pie combines the best of all things sweet. The one-crust pie is full of a rich custard or pudding, made by whipping cream, eggs, milk, a bit of flour, and in this case, bananas or banana flavoring into pastry cream-esque magic. This stems from a key feature of French cakes and tarts, the lovely crème pâtissière.
But don't forget the most important (and best part), which is sure to drive you bananas with joy: a lush, mile-high whipped cream topping. Sprinkle with toasted coconut or chocolate shavings for total bliss.
You don't want to be a banana pie buzzkill, so make your own cream pie to celebrate this joyous occasion. Each bite will leave you with a banana-shaped smile on your face.
Chocolate Nanner Cream Pie with Peanut Butter and Bacon Bits. I'll take two please.
