Reading your blog is really a plesure. You always never fail to post nice food photos for the readers.

Banana pie is quite rare in Singapore and seldom see it in cake shop. Think I will try one of these days.

Thanks a lot for your sharing!

HI Aunty,

Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Can I know what is blind bake?
How to do that?

Hi angeline,

Blind bake means baking the tart or pie shell without fillings. You can place a piece of parchment paper over the pie, pour in some pie weights or beans and bake in the oven. This helps to keep the shape of the pie.

You can buy pie weights from shops that selling baking stuff.

Hi my,

I have not tried using subsitute for this pie cos dessicated coconut is easily available in SG. I've thought of breadcrumbs but it might become too soggy because of the eggs.

whats loose bottom?

yochana said...

Hi elaine,

Loose bottom means the bottom has a plate which is attached with a spring at the side of the tin. It's mostly used for cheesecake so that they can be removed easily from the pan.

Hello Aunty Yochana,

May I know whether the banana pie filling will be able to stand after baking? Because I had the idea of baking the pie filling on top of crust and cut them into squares (like the strawberry hearts). Will the banana filling collapse without support at the sides? Thanks

Hi Aunty,

Thanks very much for sharing your recipe. I baked the pie and it was fantastic. I love the creamy banana fillings underneath the slightly browned coconut top layer. All the ingredients combine effortlessly together to give a wonderful taste. Pic of my bake at:
