  • 2 cups digestive biscuit/graham cracker crumbs
  • ⅓ cup Whitworth’s granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup mashed banana
  • ¼ cup (½ a stick) unsalted butter, melted


  • ¾ cup Whitworth’s granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup plain/all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 4-5 bananas, divided (half mashed, half sliced)



  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃/350℉/gas mark 4.
  2. Using a food processor pulse the digestive biscuits or graham crackers to crumbs. Or if you prefer, put the digestives or graham crackers into a bag and use a rolling pin to crush. Set aside.
  3. Prepare the bananas. Half mashed or pureed and half sliced. Set aside.
  4. Add the granulated white sugar to the digestive/graham cracker crumbs. Add ¼ cup of the mashed banana to the crumbs.

  1. In a saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, plain/all-purpose flour, and salt. Add the milk in slowly while stirring gently.
  2. Cook over a medium heat, stirring continuously until the mixture starts to form bubbles on top. Keep stirring and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat
  3. Stir a small quantity of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks, and immediately add the egg mixture to the rest of the mixture in the saucepan. Cook for 2 more minutes stirring continuously.
  4. Remove the mixture from the heat, add butter, vanilla extract and remaining mashed bananas. Stir until incorporated.
  5. Arrange the sliced bananas into the cooled digestive biscuit/graham cracker crumb base then top with the mixture.
