i enjoyed some delicious banana pudding this week with some friends. the recipe came from my mother-in-law (MIL) and was her mother's recipe. it is it the best pudding i have ever had. i didn't know that pudding could be made from scratch until i met my MIL. you have to try it. the effort that it takes, which is very little, is so worth the end result. i made the little banana flower using a vanilla wafer, sliced the edges of the banana pieces to make petals, and a mint sprig. wait until you are almost ready to serve the dessert to add the pretty little flower or your banana pieces will brown.
bananas (about 3)
1 cup sugar
5 tablespoons flour
2 cups of milk
3 egg yolks
1.5 capfuls of vanilla
cook sugar, flour, and milk until thick
stir frequently and use medium heat
add the egg yolks (beat before you add)
add the vanilla while stirring in the yolks
cook an additional minute after you add the yolks
layer the dessert with the wafers first the bananas then pudding. repeat the layering until you are at the top of the dish you choose to use. i always double this recipe to make a larger dish. you will want to. trust me!
