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!

How to Make Banana Pudding w/ Nilla Wafers


  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.
