This is a delicious homemade banana pudding. I top mine with meringue and serve it warm or room temperature, not cold.
I've lived in the south and eaten this pudding many times at various restaurants and functions. I've even made it a time or two, pretty much from this same recipe. I always thought it was sort of meh, but it was almost the national dish when I lived in Florida. I'd rather have a slice of banana cream pie any day, but that's a personal opinion. It might just be the store-bought vanilla wafers I never cared for..

Totally delish! I followed the timing and methodology as this type of recipe is a formula to work right. I added an additional 1/4 cup of brown sugar in addition to the white sugar listed. I added 1/2 tsp salt instead of 1/4. I used 2 tsp Mexican vanilla instead of the vanilla extract listed. I added 1 mashed banana when I added the vanilla. Recipe didn’t fit in an 8x8, used a larger pan.
Been using a similar vh recipe for several years. Very tasty. We prefer it to pudding with meringue on top. If you like bvb your desserts super sweet use 1 cup sugar. We 3/4 cup sugar is perfect with sweet bananas and vanilla wafers.
Haven't tried this yet but I will take a little of each review and see if I can make some without screwing it up (I have a habit of it when a recipe seems confusing)....to to Alexa: since You are the ONLY one that had issues with the pudding smelling like rotten eggs that it WAS YOUR EGGS, NOT the pudding. Stuff that in your cap!
The perfect Banana Pudding, so good!!!
First homemade pudding I've ever made... and it came out great! I was concerned I would "scramble" the eggs, but I tempered as directed and didn't bring pudding to a full boil. The directions are a bit confusing because it says remove from heat, then bring to boil... but I just kept it on the heat and moved on. I saw comments that this was 'bland' or 'not sweet.' I found it actually to be a bit on the sweet side, and definitely not bland. It might matter your ingredients to start with tho-- I used fresh, organic milk, eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla. Only the salt wasn't organic... but I think if you use fresh ingredients and a GOOD vanilla (real vanilla not imitation) you'll have good success! It was super easy, and if I can do it... lol.
I tried making this recipe, the pudding smelled like rotten eggs so I had to throw it out. I was very upset. I would give it less than 1 star if I could.
@Bev Could you BE more snotty? Good for you little miss thing, with your from scratch everything. The person you replied to was 80 years old. 80. Shut up. Nobody thinks you're special because you make nilla wafers from scratch. An 80 year old probably isn't as enthusiastic about that bs. Seriously. Shut. Up.
