Minions & Banana Cream Pie Recipe

ann reardon banan pie recipe

We’re having so much fun travelling. This week I got to bake with minions Kevin and Bob from the new minion movie.  I decided to make my banana caramel cream pie recipe, stacked high with extra bananas of course!  I hope you enjoy this for a bit of a light-hearted video, and of course you can make the pie with a normal amount of bananas for a great dessert.

Crumb base recipe:
15 plain cookies, crushed
100g (3.53 ounces) or just less than 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Caramel Filling Recipe:
2 cups or 430g (15.17 ounces) caster or superfine sugar
1 tablespoon or 21g (0.74 ounces) glucose syrup (or light corn syrup)
1/4 cup or 63millilitres (2.13 fluid ounces) water
300millilitres (10.14 fluid ounces) or 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons cream (35% fat)

Bananas – normally I would use 4 sliced and spread evenly over the caramel
300ml or 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons cream, whipped
100g (3.53 ounces) chocolate flaked
Extra caramel for pouring over the top (optional)

Crush the biscuits and mix with the melted butter. Press into a 18cm (7.09 inches) pie dish making sure you go up the sides so the caramel doesn’t stick to the dish.

To make the caramel heat the sugar, glucose syrup and water. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Wash down the sides of the pan using a wet pastry brush. Heat unstirred until it starts to go golden, gently swirl the pan over the heat to evenly distribute the colour and continue to get a deep golden brown, but do not burn the caramel.

Carefully add the cream, standing back to avoid the steam. Stir until smooth, the sugar mixture will dissolve into the cream. If you want extra caramel to drizzle over the top take a soup ladle of caramel out now and place in a heatproof cup. Continue to heat the rest for a couple more minutes. The longer you heat it, the firmer your caramel will be in your pie. You can test it by placing a small amount in a glass of cold water to see how thick it is when it is cold.

Pour the hot caramel into the crumb base and leave to cool.
Add chopped bananas and then pipe whipped cream over the top. Sprinkle with flaked chocolate and drizzle with extra caramel.

  4. Nice video, seems fun!
    I’m finding it hard finding a 18cm pie dish. I was wondering what yours was and if I couldn’t get that one what your suggestion was?

    • Hi Laura, Ann used a standard pyrex pie dish with an 18cm diameter. You could use whatever you have available.

  5. how can they be real minions

  6. This video is funny and cool! I love how they eat everything before you do Ann! I can’t wait for your new video to come out tomorrow!! keep up the good work!

    • THanks for the feedback #ilovepie’s. Ann had fun working with the minions. Definitely not your average day!

  7. hey ann, can u please please please make a tom and jerry cake. Please beacause my bros birthday is comming up and i would like to suprise him with this cake. And i found your recipies and ideas are quiet easy and simple but cooler and looking gorgious. Please i would be very thankful to you if you did so

    • Hi Yasmine, Thanks for the suggestion. Ann plans her creations well in advance, so you may need to consider another option for your brother’s birthday or perhaps design your own. Perhaps you could do a flat cake like this one: but make it in the shape of Tom & Jerry.

      • thanks for the great idea

  8. Who were in the costumes?

    • What costumes, they are real minions 🙂

  9. This was hilariousXD

  10. Much enjoyed your video. Looks like you had lots of fun. Did your boys get to meet the minions?
    See you next Friday.

    • Unfortunately not, we arrived at the set 25 hours after we’d left Australia and had not yet been able to check into our hotel. So my wonderful husband dropped me off and took the kids straight to the hotel to sleep. I set up my camera and tripod, explained everything to the minions and started filming. Slept well that night 😀
