Banana Pudding
A creamy, homemade banana pudding.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
  • 2-3 very ripe bananas
  • 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • dash salt
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Place bananas, milk, and cream in a saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat until hot, but not boiling. Mash bananas and mix into milk.
  2. In a separate small dish, mix together sugar, cornstarch, and salt. When milk mixture is almost boiling, add sugar mixture and mix well.
  3. In a small dish, lightly beat egg yolks. Place a small amount (about ½ cup) of the milk mixture into the eggs. Mix together, and return mixture to the saucepan.
  4. Bring pudding to a boil, and boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Place in individual ramekins or one large bowl, cover with plastic, and chill for an hour. Pudding can also be eaten warm. Top with whipped cream, if desired.
