Joy The Baker is a food blog that has reinvented the way a banana cream pie can be served by presenting it in the form of a pie donut hybrid that combines sponge pastry with the noteworthy cream filling. Rather than a flaky pie crust encasing the fruit custard, the filling is piped inside a donut for a portable version of the dessert that can be eaten by hand.

The donut dough contains a sweet sponge made using cinnamon, sugar and milk that is thick enough to encase the filling when pipped inside. The donuts are then stuffed with a traditional banana pudding filling made from scratch using fresh bananas, whipped cream and milk.

The recipe showcases how more traditional sit down desserts can be revamped to be eaten on-the-go.
