This was a last minute addition to our Zaar Week Cookathon/4th of July festivities per my FIL's request. It is the best banana pudding I have ever tasted. So much better than those that use pudding mix. This is the real deal as far as we are concerned. 5-stars from all my guests. My FIL gave it 10 but he really likes banana pudding. Thanks :)
Very, very good. Very easy, too. I used 3 bananas, and wasn't sure on the amount of wafers to use, so I used about half of a 250-gram box. This seems to have worked well. My hubby and I both loved it and I know I will be making this often. I served it unadorned, but I bet the addition of a dab of whipped cream would be the crowning touch. Thanks for posting this "old fashioned" winner!
Simply out of this world. I made this as a surprise for my dad. This is his favorite dessert ever. It turned out even better than my expectations. The pudding was rich and creamy. It was so easy to assemble. I served it warm with some fresh whipped cream. YUMMY STUFF. Thanks Nurse Di.
Thanks Nurse Di. This is my husband's favorite dessert and I always thought it would be difficult to make. Very wrong. This was surprisingly easy and the taste was to die for. Creamy pudding with ripe bananas and nilla wafers. Just like mom used to make. Thanks for giving two displaced southerners a real treat.
I made this Monday night late and put it in the fridge and then had my neighbors over for a snack Tuesday night. Today is Wednesday. There's none left! LOL! This was fabulous and a breeze to make, and delicious served chilled. Gonna make another one Sunday at the request of a little 3 year old and his mother. Thank you for a great treat!
This is a really great banana pudding. I hardly ever make it because I have always used meringe on top. I love this recipe because it tastes like old fashioned banana pudding without going to the trouble of putting meringe on top. Everyone should try this--it is so yummy!!
Made this for work - next time I will double the recipe bc everyone loved it! Made the following changes: 1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 12 oz evap milk, 4 oz 2% milk, more vanilla than called for, topped with homemade whipped cream. Thanks!!
By far the best banana pudding recipe on food.com have tried other recipes but this is the best recipe yet! The only thing I did different was I used only egg yolks and not the whites this makes a more creamy and smooth texture. Will be using this recipe from now on. Thanks for posting
This pudding is easy, delicious, and just right for an old fashioned banana pudding recipe. The only changes I made was reducing the sugar to 3/4 cup and adding 3 teaspoons of vanilla instead of 1. A combination of cooking on low heat while whisking ensured that the pudding came out perfectly. It was not lumpy of grainy as others have stated. I am very happy with this recipe. No more boxed cook and serve pudding for me!
This was my first time making Banana Pudding without using a boxed pudding mix. Although it takes a little more time, it is well worth the extra effort. I read many reviews before making this and only made a few minor changes. I followed the advice of the other reviewers and I cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup, which was a good choice because the pudding seemed like it was just right. I cooked the pudding on 5(Medium-Low) on my stove for about 15 minutes but I think if I could change anything I would have cooked it just a tad bit longer because it was a tiny bit grainy, but not too noticeable, next time I will just cook it a little longer. I layerd the pudding, banana and wafers as called for. I am not fond of meringue so for the topping I put full wafers around the edges and crushed wafers on top (see my photos above ) This is definitely a good recipe that has a permanent home in my cook book :)
