For brownie: Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly butter a large pie dish. In a medium saucepan bring a small amount of water to boil, reduce to a simmer. Add butter and 2 ounces of chocolate to the top of a double boiler, stirring constantly. When chocolate and butter are melted and blended remove mixture from heat and let cool slightly. In a small bowl, whisk gf flour mix with baking powder and salt. Whisk 1/4 cup sugar and 1 egg into chocolate mixture. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture. Stir in chopped pecans. Spread batter evenly into the bottom of pie dish. Bake for 10 minutes or until risen and dry to the touch. Remove from oven and let cool. For Vanilla Custard: Add sugar, cornstarch and salt to a medium saucepan and blend together. Gradually whisk in cream, milk, egg yolks and vanilla extract. Whisk over medium-high heat until custard thickens and begins to boil, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Place a piece of plastic wrap on surface of custard. Let cool, stirring occasionally. For Chocolate Custard: Add egg yolks, sugar, cornstarch and salt to a medium bowl and blend together. Bring milk and cream to a simmer in a heavy small saucepan. Gradually whisk milk mixture into egg mixture stirring constantly. Return mixture to saucepan. Whisk over medium heat until custard thickens and begins to boil, about 2-1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and add chopped chocolate. Stir until chocolate melts completely. Place plastic wrap on surface of custard and let cool. Pour vanilla custard over brownie in pie dish and spread evenly. Place in refrigerator and let set and chill for at least 4 hours. Peel and slice 3 bananas and starting in the middle, completely cover vanilla custard surface of pie with banana slices. Pour and spread chocolate custard evenly over bananas, covering the top completely. Whip cream in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Cover top of pie with whipped cream. Shave a piece of semi-sweet chocolate with a potato peeler to decorate top of pie with chocolate shavings. Refrigerate pie overnight for best slicing results, if you can wait that long!
