Butterscotch and Caramel Banana Pie

My Butterscotch and Caramel Banana Pie is loosely based off of a Banana Foster Pie. I based my caramel recipe off of this one at Evil Shenanigans.


2 or 3 Bananas
A pre-baked pie shell

Butterscotch Pudding: (any butterscotch pudding will do, but this is what I used.)

2 packets Dr. Oetker butterscotch pudding mix
4 cups milk

(Follow the instructions on the pudding mix box.)

Caramel Sauce:

1/3 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons cream, or half and half

In a saucepan combine the butter and sugar and cook on medium low heat. Wait for it to boil until it turns brown and liquid, turn to low and keep cooking for another minute. Remove from heat, and stir in the cream or half and half.

Making the Pie:

(Note: Your oven is not needed in this recipe except to cook the pie shell.)
Slice the bananas into coins and place them evenly on the bottom of the pie shell. Pour caramel sauce over bananas, preferably so that every piece is covered. Pour the pudding over all. Cover the putting with plastic wrap, making sure all the pudding is touching plastic so it won't develop skin, and refrigerate for several hours. Enjoy!
