I make a banana cream pie or some version of it every year for my husbands birthday. One year, I made this Banana Pudding Poke Cake (one of the most popular recipes on my blog!). This year, he wanted both a banana cream pie and my Double Layer “Dirt” Cake (you gotta check this one out too)…I think he just couldn’t decide. Me being the wonderful wife I am, agreed.
Fast forward to baking day and I discover that most of the Oreos for the “dirt” cake were missing. Ah-hem, husband…guess you didn’t want that cake THAT bad. Since I had some of the Oreos plus all of the ingredients for the banana cream pie, I decided to sort of combine the two. Wow, SO glad some of the cookies went missing – this pie is amazing!
Pudding in pies or cakes is my favorite. Add a bit of crunch from the cream filled sandwich cookies and what you have is pure bliss. So delicious! And I love the fact that it’s no-bake. Easy! I started with a chocolate graham cracker crust (and made it easy on myself by using a ready to use one). That gets layered with bananas, pudding, cookies, more bananas, more pudding, Cool Whip, then more cookies. I’ll say it again – ah-mazing!!
