I have grown to love banana pudding over the years. Growing up I just did not like it because the cookies would get soggy, the texture would glob up and the flavor I liked just was not there. But I have discovered homemade banana pudding to be the best – of course! This one is made in the microwave believe it or not and may turn “questionable” when making it but that is highly desirable with this one. Never make banana pudding from a boxed vanilla pudding mix – always make it this way – from scratch, flavorful and delicious.
Scratch Made Banana Pudding
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 stick (2 oz) unsalted butter
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
1 tablespoon white all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Box of vanilla wafers
4 bananas, peeled and sliced
In a large microwave safe bowl combine the whole milk, unsalted butter, beaten eggs, white granulated sugar and white all-purpose flour. Microwave on high for 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.
In a 9×13-inch baking pan combine together the vanilla wafer cookies with the sliced bananas. Pour the finished microwaved mixture over the cookies and bananas carefully.
Allow to rest for 15 minutes before eating for a warm treat. For a cool, more traditional treat, cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate for 12 hours before eating. Top with whipped cream if desired.
