Homemade Banana Pudding - recipe

Yup, still here. Still pregnant. 
Still eating lots of yummy things!!

I looooove banana pudding. 
In this part of the county it's a staple at every yummy southern restaurant - that and some form of cobbler.

So I decided to try my hand at my making my own. OMGeeeee, delish!

Try it out!!


3 cups of milk
3 egg yolks
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. of vanilla
About half of a box of vanilla wafers
3 bananas
 1 1/2 cups of Cool Whip

Mix milk and egg yolks to a medium saucepan and whisk. Then add the sugar, flour, and salt and whisk again until it's smooth.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 20 minutes or until it thickens.
{If it’s not getting as thick as you’d like after the 20 minutes, add just a bit more flour}

 Remove from the heat and add your vanilla.

I decided to arrange my banana pudding in a large dish. I started by arranging a layer of wafer cookies and a layer of bananas.

  Spoon custard over bananas. 
{Tip: if you give the custard some time to cool, it won't make the wafer cookies so mushy so quickly}

 Repeat your wafer cookie, banana, and custard layers until the custard is gone.

Spread the cool whip over the top.

Eat as is or give it several hours to cool. I love both!

Another awesome thing about banana pudding is that you can make and arrange it in a variety of ways. Check out some of awesome looking banana puddings!!
