Banana Pudding Trifle

Jolayne Cooper


I found a recipe for Banana Pudding Trifle in the Southern Living Christmas Cookbook. It sounded wonderful, but I tweaked it to make it my own. Here is my version.

I hope you enjoy, we sure did. There was nothing left after serving at our dinner this past week.

  • 1 1/2 c
  • 3/4 c
    all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp
  • 4 c
  • 8
    egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp
    vanilla extract
  • 2 pkg
    pepperidge farms chessman cookies
  • 6
    ripe bananas, sliced
  • 6
    (1.4-oz.) chocolate-covered toffee candy bars, cut up or crushed
  • 4 c
    whipping cream
  • 4 Tbsp
    sifted powdered sugar

How to Make Banana Pudding Trifle


  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan; whisk in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Remove from heat.
  2. Beat egg yolks until thick and pale. Gradually stir one-fourth of hot mixture into yolks; add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Stir in vanilla. Let the custard cool with plastic wrap directly on the custard so it won't form a skin.
  3. When the custard is cooled, beat cream at medium speed with an electric mixer, gradually adding in the powdered sugar. Beat until soft peaks form.
  4. Layer one-third of cookies in a 16-cup trifle bowl or 4-quart baking dish. Top with one-third of banana slices.
  5. Spoon one-third of custard over banana, and sprinkle with 1/3 of crushed candy bar. Spoon one-third of whipped cream over the candy. Repeat layers twice, so there are 3 layers of everything. On the last layering, I put the candy on top for presentation.
