Banana Cream pudding my favorite. This dessert is one of my favorites but I don't make this that often cuz my bf doesn't like bananas. I only make it on special occasions but it is a family favorite & my neices love it! Great kid snack!

Prep:

Cook:

3 Hr

Ingredients

1/3 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
cornstarch
1/4 tsp
nutmeg
1/8 tsp
salt
1 1/2 c
half and half
2
egg yolks
1 Tbsp
unsalted butter
1 tsp
vanilla
3-4
bananas, sliced
24
vanilla wafer, crushed
whipped cream (for serving)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg and salt in a medium saucepan, then whisk in half and half and egg yolks. Place over medium heat and cook, whisking constantly, until pudding thickens and begins to boil, 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Whisk until butter has melted. Transfer pudding to a bowl and refrigerate until cold, about 3 hours.
2
In your preferred serving dish (I used individual parfait glasses. You could also use ramekins or even a casserole dish if serving a bigger crowd), create two sets of layers using the bananas, 1/3 of the pudding and Nilla wafers. Top with the remaining 1/3 of the pudding.
3
Before serving, top with whipped cream and additional banana slices and Nilla wafers, if desired.

ENJOY!!
