  1. Instructions Slice the banana into a baked crust shell. Heat the milk in a double boiler to boiling point. Stir the flour and a little cold milk or water to a smooth paste, and pour slowly into a hot milk, stirring as it is being added, and let cook for 15 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of the hot cream, a sprinkle of salt and the sugar to the yolk of egg, and mix well; then pour the hot cream in a slow stream into the yolk mixture, stirring briskly as it is being added. Stir over the fire for a few minutes, until the mixture thickens a little from the yolk, but do not boil. Pour over the sliced banana in the crust shell and set aside. Add 1 tablespoon cold water to the white of egg, and beat rapidly until very foamy; then add gradually 1 tablespoon sugar and a few drops of vanilla or lemon extract and beat until firm enough to spread nicely over the top. Brown lightly in the oven, and let cool.
