History Of National Banana Cream Pie Day

People have enjoyed pies since ancient times. However, banana cream pie was not even a thought during ancient or even medieval times. However, during medieval times, custard, cream, and pudding pies were enjoyed after feasts. Bananas were not included in those pies during the times because it was not easy to transport bananas until the later part of the 19th century. Then recipe books printed in the late 19th century included banana dessert recipes.

One recipe in a late 19th-century recipe book included the earliest banana cream pie recipe. The instructions were to fill the baked pie crust with banana slices and sugar and place it in the oven for a few minutes to soften. Then to put whipped cream in it after taking it out. Then, this pie became a hit in the USA since then.
