Memaw’s Banana Pudding
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Cook: 15 min.
It was my first time to make this recipe, it was easy to follow and tastes wonderful. Great recipe!
It took me a bit longer to fix than stated, but it got rave reviews from my son-in-law (it was a gift for his birthday). His family enjoyed as well.
My first time making this with real vs boxed pudding
Mine came out like soup. I do not understand what could have happened . I wrote review before but it did not show up here. What did I do wrong? When I added egg yolks to sugar/cornstarch mixture it was so clumpy..but I tempered it with the hot milk and then added it to heavy saucepan with milk/half and half. Brought to boil cooked 2 more min..off heat, added vanilla and softened butter. When cooled I layered it and it was thick..a little bit clumpy.hours later it was thin and runny..HELP!!!
Yeah.. The real stuff! That's what people want during the holidays!
This pudding was good, but the texture is very thick. A whole box of vanilla wafers is way too much for the amount of pudding. One layer in the bottom, one layer halfway, and then a few around the edges on top would be the perfect ratio. I garnished it with real whipped cream sweetened with 1.5 Tbsp of sugar as the pudding is plenty sweet without the additional sweetness and artificial taste of frozen whipped topping.
Very tasty pudding! The preparation method is different than other puddings I have made and I did have lumps, but other than that it was delicious!
I just love it when a new TOH arrives and it is chock full of good recipes. Feb/Mar 2017 is no exception. This recipe is delicious. It takes a lot more time than store bought packaged pudding but it is so worth it. It's quite decadent but we made it even more so by adding caramel sauce on top (as shown in the picture on the front page of the mag). Yummy!
