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.

Good luck!!!

I always just take a couple of big packages of Jello banana pudding, slice up some bananas, and throw in a box or two of vanilla waffers.

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk, low fat or whole
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • vanilla wafer cookies
  • 3 to 4 bananas, ripe but firm
  • sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping
  • Banana slices for garnish
  • mint sprigs, optional

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!!

let me know what ya think.
Yes the nanners turn brown ,But , The wife usually uses RIPE nanners to start with.
The longer you let it chill b4 eating the better it is IMO.

Hmpf!! Fine then. biggrin.gifJust kidding. You don't need the boiler. Just stir constantly & don't let it burn. And you can replace the flour with cornstarch if you like, which I recommend.
