Homemade "Banana Pudding"
"This is from Scratch". Out of my recipe file box of favorites that I use often. you can make variations to this for Coconut or just plain Vanilla Pudding.
You can cheat . . (but I didn't say that) and use Vanilla Cooked pudding mix in the same way for a simple version of this favorite.
Slice Bananas over top of cookies.
Stir constantly with wire whip or wooden spoon, so it does not scortch the bottom, until this thickens,
about 15 min. usually
add vanilla, stir well.
layer 3 times. cookies- bananas- pudding.
Cover with Plastic wrap so it does not form a thick film on top. Store in refer.
Now Enjoy real Homemade pudding.
add coconut about 1/2 C to pudding for Coconut Pudding and (omit vanilla,) add Coconut Extract.
I use a litte toasted coconut on top of pudding.
or Vanilla Pudding asabove omit cokies and bananas.
You can top with Cool whip, whip cream or meringue (sp)
I usually have Whipped Cream, or Cool Whip topping.
OR . .
You can also add a topping of Meringue,
then bake 2-3 min just til golden brn.
Chill in refer til serving time.
