Here is my little grandaughter 9 year old Gabriella, she loves to come over on Saturday's and bake with me. This is her first Banana pudding. She made this today with a little help from her grandma Abuela "Mua" Me of course. I love to spend the day baking with her teaching her some of my recipes. She is very proud of how it came out as you can see. Quite the little cook. We had a wonderful day. We also made paquesitos Cubanos and diet cookies for her Abuelo/Grandpa. Here is her banana pudding recipe Enjoy
In a large bowl or pyrex square dish Gaby lined the bottom with vanilla wafers. She then peeled and sliced the three bananas. She put one slice on top of each cookie. under the watchful eye of her Grandmother Mua
In the meantime I added 3 cups cold milk in a saucepan and emptied the whole box of vanilla pudding into the milk. With a wisk over a medium flame I began to stir until the mixture began to bubble slowly. You cannot leave the pot. Must watch it does not scorch. Just keep stirring until pudding thickens. As soon as it starts to bubble and boil take off the heat. Set aside to cool about five minutes.
Now Gaby took a very large cooking spoon and began to spoon the pudding over the cookies and bananas. Next she again took the wafers and put them over the first layer of cookies and bananas. She next added another layer of sliced bananas over the those cookies and spooned another layer of pudding over the cookies and bananas. By this time she had about 10 cookies. she used the last ten over the second layer of pudding and cookies and add her last banana slices and finished spooning the last of the pudding over those cookies and bananas. Of course she followed her gramother's instructions But, she did all the work herself.
Now Gaby took the whipped topping and took large spoonfuls and covered the whole banana pudding dish. She then took the back of the spoon and kind of swirled all over the top. A little tip from her Grandma Juliann. Gaby finished by putting her pudding in the refrigerator for at least four hours for dessert tonight; but not before taking a picture with her first Banana Pudding. She is one proud little girl. She says she is going to post her pictue and recipe in her Facebook. Reminds me of somebody. Create some memories spend a day with your grandchild or child. They will always remember you. I know I have never forgotten my childhood with my grandmother in the kitchen. Blessings and LOL
