Emily’s Banana Pudding

  • Serving Size: 5 – 6
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Cooking time: 15 minutes
Amount Measure Ingredients
1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
5 Tbsp cornstarch (heaping scoops)
5 cups milk — Make half of it evaporated milk
3 large egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla flavoring
3-4   nice size bananas
1 box Nilla or Jack’s vanilla wafers

To prepare:

Mix sugar and corn starch well, Slowly add milk, stirring to dissolve corn starch well. Beat eggs and set aside. On medium heat, cook, stirring constantly. When mix begins to get hot, slowly pour eggs into mixture and stir will. Cook to a bubbly boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Cool custard completely. (You don’t want to “cook” your bananas by adding custard too soon). After cooling, layer in a 2 qt. bowl, beginning with custard, add a layer of bananas, then wafers, Repeat. I always put wafers all around the bowl and some on top too.
