Baked Banana Custard

My husband loves bananas so this baked banana custard sounded like a perfect dessert too make. Unfortunately I didn't really look at the instructions until I started making them and they made very little sense. I did what I could, but the custard did not come out right. Part of it baked and solidified, the other part just stayed liquid. Needless to say we didn't eat it. Too bad.

Baked Banana Custard


  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 cups milk, warm.
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 5 tbsp. sugar
  • a dash of nutmeg


    Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a baking dish.

    Peel and puree the bananas. Add 2 tbsp. of sugar, the nutmeg and the lime juice. Mix.

    In a separate bowl, beat eggs and 3 tbsp of sugar. Add milk and mix well.

    Pour banana mixture into the baking dish. Cover with bread crumbs. Add egg mixture. Bake until custard is set.
