It's funny how rather retro American desserts, like the Banana Cream Pie bring back memories of grandmothers and childhoods. I am happy to report this version, inspired by Sarabeth's Bakery, does not disappoint. You have to make one to see how beautifully it cuts and how fantastic it tastes.

  1. What size jars did you use for the banana pudding on episode 2 on Zoe bakes on magnolia network?

    1. Hi Dianna, Zoë used a variety of sizes for the banana pudding. The smaller ones (for the kids) were 4 oz and the larger were 6-8 oz. Enjoy!

  2. I have been baking for over 53 years and I am considered quite good at it. I just love your show and I am a born & raised Minnesota girl. I made your chocolate chip cookies last night and they were just phenomenal!! Turned out exactly how you said they would. These are now and forever my go to cookie. My next tackle will be the meringue shell filled with cream & fruit. I can’t wait! Thank you for such a great cooking show!
