Try Eric Lanlard's banana and rum pie recipe from his "Tart It Up" book.  It is a rich exotic pie, full of delicious flavours. The fluffy vanilla cream topping is a great contrast to the filling.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C gas mark 4).

  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and add the crushed digestive biscuits, stirring to coat them well.

  3. Press the mixture into a 23cm (9in) diameter shallow pie plate or dish, covering the sides. Bake for 10 minutes, or until fragrant.

  4. Remove the dish from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 160°C (fan 140°C, gas mark 3).

  5. Put the banana slices on a sheet of kitchen foil and toss them with the muscovado sugar and spices, coating them all over. Cover with another sheet of kitchen foil, place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 15–20 minutes, or until mushy. Remove from the oven, but leave the oven turned on.

  6. Put the eggs, coconut cream and rum into a bowl and beat well. Stir in the cooked bananas. Pour this mixture into the pie base and bake in the oven for 25–30 minutes, or until wobbly. Cool completely in the dish.

  7. Whip the cream, golden icing sugar and vanilla to form nice soft peaks. Pile high on top of the pie and sprinkle generously with the grated chocolate. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
