Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 9-in. pie plate. Stir together 1-3/4 cups cake mix, egg and 1 tablespoon butter until combined. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until a smooth dough forms. Roll dough to fit prepared pie plate. Flute edge. Prick bottom several times with a fork. Bake until golden brown, 12-15 minutes. Cool crust in pan on a wire rack.
  2. Whisk milk and pudding mix 2 minutes. Fold in banana and 1 cup whipped topping. Transfer to cooled crust. Top with remaining whipped topping. Refrigerate at least 3 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, mix remaining cake mix, peanut butter and remaining butter until crumbly. Transfer to a parchment-lined rimmed baking pan. Bake until golden brown, 14-18 minutes, stirring once. Cool completely.
  4. Top pie with additional sliced banana and some of the crumb topping (save additional crumb topping for another use).
Recipe Notes
Test Kitchen Tips

  • For a delicious treat, sprinkle the remaining topping over ice cream.
  • When you're rolling out and fluting crust, work quickly so the dough doesn't get too soft and sticky.
  • We love the addition of toasted coconut! Try stirring 1/2 cup into the filling and topping the pie with another 1/2 cup.
