I remember my mom used to make Impossible Coconut Pie way back when I was full of youthful exuberance. It seemed amazing the way you could pour everything into one pan and there would magically appear a crust, filling and topping.
I decided to see what would happen if I took the same basic idea and tried it with bananas, since Captain Cavedweller loves banana desserts.
The result turned out quite tasty and it was so super easy!
Impossible Banana Pie
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup baking mix
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 medium-sized bananas (the riper the better)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into a pie pan (I gave mine a quick shot of non-stick cooking spray).
Bake for 65 minutes (or so) or until the center is set (it will have a custardy texture). If you like the smell of banana bread, this will make your mouth water!
Remove from oven and let cool slightly (or completely).
I served it with a swirl of caramel sauce and a bit of whipped cream. You could add slices of fresh banana or some chocolate. Whatever strikes your fancy!
