RECIPE #16: Banana Pudding

There are as many banana pudding recipes as there are people to make it. 
My mom and grandmother always made homemade pudding so I can't bring myself to make it from a box...I actually think it's gross tasting because of the artificial flavors.
Here's my grandmother's recipe that I've adopted. It's easy & takes me about 15 minutes to make. Enjoy!

5 T flour
2/3 C sugar
1/4 t salt

2 egg yokes
2 C milk

1 T vanilla
2 bananas
1/4 stick butter

vanilla wafers

Any ripe bananas will work. I like to use browned, over-ripe bananas.

Combine dry ingredients.
Heat milk then mix in eggs.
Combine dry ingredients with milk mixture.
Heat in microwave in 1-2 minute intervals until thick.
Then add vanilla, bananas & butter.

Line your bowl with vanilla wafers.
Add 1/2 of pudding.
Then layer with more vanilla wafers.
Add the rest of the pudding and the last layer of vanilla wafers.
Cover & place in refrigerator. Serve cold.

I totally agree that the boxed pudding is just not right! I'm happy once again to see that this is the same recipe that my mom has and gave me, accept we put in the egg yolks too and it makes it look slightly yellowish. ;0)
