Hi! I love banana pudding! I use the recipe on the side of the box of Nilla Wafers, you can't beat a good old custard. I do two things different though, I do add some banana extract to the custard as well as the vanilla. I don't like the way bananas get all mushy, so I leave them out.
The other thing is I don't do the meringe, I used whipped cream with a little banana flavoring and powdered sugar.
crush all but 12 nilla wafers in a bag, 5 ripe bananas sliced. 1 can pet milk. 1 cup sugar. Mix bananas, pet milk ,sugar and crushed nilla wafers . top w/ 12 whole nilla wafers. refidgerate for at least 1 hour b4 serving.
easy ,but the best nanner pudding i've ever had.
Come on Bob. It's got to be more than that. Goimg to call Mom tomorrow in Alabama and try and get her recipe. She's 91 bless her heart and never really writes a recipe down. I know I can eat the whole pan!!!!!!!!
In a bowl, combine the sugar, salt, and flour; stir to blend. Slowly stir in milk until smooth. Pour into the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Cook, whisking frequently, until the mixture begins to thicken. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks; gradually whisk in about 1 cup of the slightly thickened hot milk mixture. Return egg mixture to the double boiler, stir in the vanilla and butter, and continue whisking and cooking until well thickened. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.In tall dessert glasses or a 2-quart serving dish, make a layer of vanilla wafers then sliced banana. Spoon some of the pudding over the banana layer then layer more vanilla wafers and banana slices, topping with more pudding. Serve with whipped cream topping. If using short dessert dishes, use only one layer each of the wafers, banana slices, and pudding, and then top with a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish each serving with a few slices of banana and a mint sprig if desired. Serves 6 to 8.
LOL! I know leaving out the banana's sounds crazy, but I just don't like the way they turn all gooey and brownish. Ewwww.... I guess it would be okay if I ate the whole thing in one sitting (which I probably could do, but ...) So, that's why I put banana extract in the custard and a little in the whipped cream. Good luck!!
