❓FAQs about the Eggless Banana Cream Pie

Can I make this Eggless Banana Cream Pie recipe gluten free?

You can make it gluten free if you make the pie crust dough gluten free. For this you have to use an alternative gluten free flour mix that you can substitute on 1:1. However, pie dough is often tricky to make, and you may have to change the recipe, mostly the quantities per ingredient.

Can I make this pie recipe crustless?

You can make this Banana Cream Pie crustless by omitting the pie crust. If you do so, the recipe will be more of a cake than a pie. To make a crustless version, simply omit the pie crust and pour the filling mixture into a greased 9-inch baking pan. You will have to change the recipe and add flour to the mixture so that it does not fall apart.

How can I refrigerate this Eggless Banana Cream Pie?

You should definitely refrigerate the banana cream pie as it is made with dairy and should not be left out for longer than a couple of hours. Bakers discard pies with dairy and eggs if left out for more than 2 hours at room temperature. Place Banana Cream Pie in the refrigerator with a large cloche on top, loose aluminum foil or a plastic wrap. You can keep it in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Can I freeze the Banana Cream Pie?

As it is creamy, the Banana Cream Pie does not freeze well. Therefore, it is not recommended to keep it in the freezer.
