Banana Pudding is famous in the South. It is on the menu at most restraunts, and everybody talks about it. Somehow I never save room when we go out to eat and have not taken the time to find a good recipe to make it myself. So when my friend brought this over, I was very excited to dig in:)! I was equally as happy when she shared with me the recipe. It is her Grandmothers famous recipe, and I can see why! It is simple, easy and WONDERFUL!!
Grandma’s Banana Pudding
submitted by Melanie (recipe source: Celeste’s Grandmother)
Scald 1 1/2 cups milk (I use whatever I have in my fridge – today it was 2%)
while waiting for milk,
2 Tbls cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
Add 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup or so scalded milk to cornstarch mixture (this is so the egg yolks don’t cook), stir well, then add to remaining scalded milk. Stir with wire whisk on medium to medium/low heat until thickened. I stir constantly to prevent burning.
Layer with vanilla wafers and bananas, put 1/2 pudding on top of that and repeat layers. Top with fresh whipping cream.
Melanie – for the size pan(10×13) I made for you, I tripled the pudding recipe, used 1 box of wafers, and probably 8-10 bananas. Also, my grandmother noted NO VANILLA!!
