No bananas, no...

It is not a good idea to use a banana as an emulsifier in a custard type dish. If you use it in pie filling, custard etc. the banana flavor will not mellow out. It will be a giant bastard and will overwhelm all other flavors and make your custard/pie taste as if you threw an entire bunch of bananas in there even though you used less than one.

Bananas in: Cake, cookies, brownies, bread = okay (usually)

Bananas in: Pie filling, tarts, custard, pudding, 'cheese cake' = not okay (unless you want banana flavor)

So, in conclusion: No bananas in pie unless you want it to taste like a giant banana!
