Guest Blogger Ashley shares her Banana Bread Pie

I can not tell you how honored I am to do a guest blog for Java Cupcake! I am a huge fan of the blog and am just so excited to be able to share a recipe with you guys. A little about me before I get into the recipe – my name is Ashley and food is my passion. I live in Belgium with my husband who is active duty USAF and my two little boys Jakob who is 7 and Conner who is 5. I also lived in Germany as a child for 7 years with my mom,dad, and 2 sisters. My dad was stationed at Gilenkirchen Nato base. Not many have heard of it I always get the head tilt when I mention it to others. Get ready for another huh moment when I tell you where we are stationed lol. We are stationed at SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe) it too is a Nato base. We have been here as of April 7 2011 for a year. I am currently in school to get my Bachelors in Elementary Education.

Since being in Belgium I have had to cook quite often and I found my calling… Baking (cue angelic singing). I was doing everything by hand because I did not have a stand mixer.. I know I don’t know how I did it either. Then my amazing mother in law sent me for Christmas/Birthday present a pink kitchenaid stand mixer. It proudly sits on my kitchen counter and even though I have to use a transformer to use it I can’t go back to hand mixing I just can’t. There are not fast food restaraunts on every corner here like in the states. We have a small Airbase here that has Burger King, Anthony’s pizza, & a little turkish place. That is it.. We don’t have the huge food court that Ramstein has (yes I am jealous). Also that Chievres Air base is 40 mins away from my house out in the country side. So needless to say I bake/cook quite frequently which lead to the birth of my blog Feel free to stop by anytime. Okay enough of me talking on to the recipe.

I orginally saw this recipe over at Young Adventures . I thought wow how interesting. I am a huge banana fan and am pretty much obsessed with finding the perfect banana bread. So I decided this was a must. I loved it! Not only is it moist but so much flavor! I added a lot to it on my own so below is my recipe with changes made. After having this I will never go back to banana bread. I hope you guys will enjoy this as much as I did. By the way in my pictures you will see even after a year we are still eating on paper plates hey no judgement haha it cuts down on dishes. = : ) Enjoy-Ashley

Banana Bread Pie

2 very ripe bananas ( I used 4 medium bananas)
1/2 cup light Bisquick mix (if you don’t want it runny add 1/4 more)
2 large eggs
1 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon of butter melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
*I added 2 Cups of chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Mash the bananas until smooth. I used a potato musher.
Add rest of the ingredients and mix until blended.
Pour into a 9 inch pie pan. I doubled the recipe and used a deep dish pie pan.
Cook for 26-30 mins. If you use a deep dish pan I cooked mine for like 40 to 50 mins. Use a knife or toothpick and cook until the inside is no longer runny. I added some whip cream and dusted it with cinnamon. It is very very good.

*Tips & Tricks*
If you make it with my changes after about 15 mins cover it with tin foil because the top will burn.

Sounds delicious! Did you grease your pie plate? Have you ever added chocolate chips to the batter? Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend!

Gigi... I didn't make the recipe, but I would assume you'd grease and flour the pie pan before adding the batter. :) And also... I've made other banana bread before and have added chocolate chips.... so yummy!! :) Betsy
