There is nothing like a bowl of my Mama’s Banana Pudding to enjoy on a nice summer evening. After working on the homestead all day, it is a great way of sitting back and enjoying the evening after a long days work. I found this recipe among my recipes I received from my Mom. I hope you enjoy this family favorite as much as we do!
The first step is taking 2/3 Cup of sugar, 1/2 Teaspoon salt, 2 1/2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch, 1 Tablespoon of Flour and 3 Cups of Milk and placing it in a heavy bottom sauce pan and bring to a boil, constantly stirring. Boil for 3 minutes.
To test the thickness of the pudding, take the back of a spoon and coat the pudding on it. Then take your finger and swipe the center of the spoon and make sure the swipe stays clean and there is no running of the pudding. This is a pretty easy test to make sure the pudding is at the right thickness. Once you are to this stage, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and butter until the ingredients are well incorporated. Cool the pudding before assembling the rest of the dessert.
