Banana PuddingUser Submitted Recipe
1 box Nilla Wafers (reduced fat)
1 ½ cups sugar
6 tablespoons cornstarch
½ teaspoon salt
4 cups (2% milk)
6 slightly beaten egg yolks
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla
Separate the eggs first and set aside.
In a large saucepan, on medium heat, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add milk gradually 1/2 cup at a time while stirring constantly. Then cook and stir until you see the mixture start to boil. (Don't stop stirring) Then cook & stir for 2 more minutes.
Remove from heat and add about 1 cup of the hot mixture to the eggs until blended. Then cook & stir for another 2 minutes and remove from heat.
Stir in the butter and vanilla and set aside.
Layer the bottom of a large casserole dish with the wafers. Then slice the bananas over them. Then add half of the pudding & repeat. Then top with the remaining wafers.
Cover & refrigerate for at least 4 hours to soften the wafers. You can also cut this recipe in half for smaller gatherings.
