  • 1 9 inch pie crust, baked
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 egg yokes Save whites for meringue
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Meringue Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Bake pie crust according to package directions.  Let cool.  Toss sliced bananas with lemon juice and spread bananas in the bottom of the baked pie shell.  In a pot on top of the stove, mix milk, salt, egg yolks, cornstarch, sugar, vanilla with a spoon or whisk. Add margarine in one piece.  Cook on medium high heat about 5 to 7 minutes stirring constantly with whisk.  This will burn easily. Mixture will thicken like pudding.  Remove from heat and pour over sliced bananas.  Let cool before adding meringue.
