Well it was invented in the United States from the ever popular custard pie. Let’s delve deeper, shall we?
Banana Cream Pie E-Juice | Origins
Banana Cream Pie itself is of Midwestern origins and seems to have been invented around the end of the 19th Century. By this time, bananas were starting to become popular and readily available. Marketers actually really pushed the sales of bananas at this point and many cookbooks included them in new recipes. New methods of transportation and refrigeration cars allowed food companies to ship the fruits from tropical countries to the inland United States. By the mid-20th Century, the average American was eating 80 bananas a year!
The typical recipe is a combination of vanilla custard, bananas, whipped cream, and a graham cracker crust. However, there are a lot of variations out there. The armed forces named banana cream pie their favorite dessert in 1951, which goes to show how ingrained this dessert is in Americana.
