Old Fashioned Banana Pudding?

Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

Well, as a true Old Fashioned Banana Pudding lover I am always looking to enjoy a dish of anything banana. I make Banana Pancakes, I mash banana’s up in peanut butter with a little honey and eat them on bread like a sandwich. I slice banana’s lengthwise and eat them on bread with peanut butter, etc..

We love Banana Nut Bread, Zucchinin Bread with Banana’s, and or course our Homemade Banana Pudding Recipe located HERE, . This is a new recipe for us and as I intend to try it out I am going to share it here with you all. The recipe looks to be very tasty and fairly easy to make. Of course, you will have to cook your pudding. This is not a no-cook recipe.

First you need a good medium sized pot with a handle on it. A good whisk, and a good set of mixing bowls. We like the looks of the Trifle Bowls also. They make the pudding look so elegant when displayed in them. Can you imagine, Banana Pudding looking elegant like a pretty trifle? I can!

Ok so, get your stuff together and make a list of what you will need to make this Old Fashioned Banana Pudding. It is not a large list so lets get cooking!

Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

Ingredients for: Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

  • 1 – Scant Cup Sugar (Old timers way of saying don’t heap it up)
  • Pinch of Salt ( This is what you can hold between your first finger and thumb )
  • 1 – Cups of Milk. ( Use the kind of your choice) We use 2%.
  • 1 – Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 5 – Tbsp Flour
  • 2 – Eggs (Farm fresh is best but store bought will do)
  • 1 – Tbsp Butter
  • 1 – Box Nilla Wafers
  • 3 – Bananas

Directions for: Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

  1. In a large bowl add, sugar, flour, and salt, mix thoroughly.
  2. Add eggs and mix well.
  3. Add milk slowly as you mix and stir until you have a good smooth mix without any lumps.
  4. Add to your pot and over a low flame or low heat, stir mix constantly until a good thick mix is achieved. (If you don’t watch and stir, you will scorch your pudding and it won’t be fittin’ to eat)
  5. Add vanilla and butter, mix well.
  6. Layer vanilla wafers, bananas, and pudding in your bowl.

Note: If using the Trifle you will want to stand the wafers around the sides of the bowl so they show after the pudding is all added.

You can always have a setting of Parfait for your table for when guest come around.  Give them a single serving and watch their eyes light up when you set this delicious dish out!  Just spoon it in the glasses just like you would the Trifle and garnish with some crushed Nilla Wafers and a full wafer on top.  Use some cream whip to top the parfait with! There are some really pretty Parfait Glassesat our affiliate if you don’t have any of your own.

We like homemade recipes and the simpler the better. We like cooking but do not always have time for a lot of frills and extras. Sometimes you just want to throw a few things together and “get er’ done”. This is one of those “get er’ done” recipes.
