Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Instructions

  1. Begin by preparing the dough. Sift all ingredients together in a food processor (with the plastic dough attachment), except the egg and water. Pulse until you have a sandy consistency and the pieces of butter are pea size. Then place this mixture in a large bowl or not, you can continue in the food processor. Make a well in the middle and pour in the egg and water. Working with your hands or pulsing mix all ingredients together. Itll get really sticky so little by little while mixing sprinkle the extra flour in the mixture until it becomes a dough. Make sure not to over mix the dough. Once you have a dough, plastic wrap it and place it in your freezer for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit.
  3. Next, sprinkle some extra flour on your work surface to roll out dough. Roll the dough to the proper dimension. And gently drape it over the tin and fit into the bakeware. Trim off excesses dough around the tin. With a fork poke the bottom of the pie so it doesnt rise when we pre bake it. On top put either pie weights or dried beans so theres no rise. Place the tin on top of a baking sheet so its easier to put and take out of oven. Place pie crust in oven for 20 minutes. Then remove and set it aside to cool.
  4. Now for Filling. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until it turns pale yellow, and set aside. In a small sauce pot bring the heavy cream, milk, and ground coffee to a boil, then set aside to cool. Once the coffee mixture is room temperature/cool while whisking add it in slowly into the egg yolk mixture. Then add in the ground cinnamon. Whisk everything well.
  5. Lastly, cover bottom of the pie with the sliced bananas then pour over the filling and bake for approximately 30 min, or until pie is set. Remove from oven, and let it cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Egg yolks are high in cholesterol, leading some people to recommend eating only egg whites or limiting egg consumption to one egg per day. However, new research suggests you might go ahead and eat your whole eggs. It turns out egg yolk contains valuable nutrients (the cartenoids that make it yellow are great for eye health, folic acid is great for brain health, and it has vitamins A, E, D, and K) and dietary cholesterol seems to have little influence on blood cholesterol levels.

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • Don't waste any egg yolks or egg whites left over from separating eggs. Both can be frozen and used later (ice cube trays come in handy here!)

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • If your recipe calls for ripe bananas and you only have green ones, stick the green bananas in a closed paper bag to speed up the ripening process. You can even put an apple in the bag with them since apples produce a lot of the gas that encourages ripening (called ethylene). This process takes some time, of course, so if you need ripe bananas immediately you might give the oven method a try.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
