Banana Pudding Cream Pie
Nilla wafer crust, roasted banana custard, and a silky layer of chocolate ganache. This pie comes together in less than 90 minutes and will happily sit in your fridge for a day or two until you’re ready to serve. Roasting bananas in the oven while your crust bakes is my secret to an extra flavorful banana pudding.
Layers of delicately thyme flavored vanilla cakes, mascarpone cream cheese frosting, and juicy roasted grapes. Fall bakes can become tedious fast, but this layer cake won’t have you stressing over peeling or prepping any autumnal fruit.
