Old Fashioned Banana Pudding Recipe



I can eat this as it is or use as a wonderful filling for cupcakes! My mom use to make this one to fill cakes with. Great on poundcakes too with caramel ice cream topping and more fresh bananas along with a mound of freshly whipped cream...


1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons corn starch
pinch of salt
1 ripe banana mashed well
2 egg yolks beaten
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 teaspooon vanilla

In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add banana, egg yolks, and vanilla then place over medium-low heat and slowly whisk in milk until thoroughly combined. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until mixture comes to a boil and thickens, whisking continuously.
Spoon into individual dessert dishes and chill. Chill first before using as a filling as well.

This is so sweetly comforting, isn't it? I have six bananas in the freezer (been that kind of winter) and this is the perfect solution!

I had a recent flop with my banana experiment, but this delicious classic is what I should have stuck with. Your suggestions on serving does make me want to make a double batch. Yes, I do choose this over chocolate too. Enjoy the weekend! XOXO

I've always loved banana pudding so this brings back childhood memories for me. I think I'd just end up eating it with a spoon before I got to fill anything :)
