How about Banana Pudding instead?

Um… things aren’t going so well!

Baking with a rowdy puppy underfoot is… challenging.

Also I made an impulse buy at the grocery store and have been stuffing my face with Nilla wafers/making banana pudding. It’s not the most picturesque, but it’s pretty delicious! Why have I never bought Nilla wafers before?


I adapted the recipe a little bit because I’m uncomfortable with what they called for with the egg whites. I know some people are a little more liberal with their egg whites(coughEdwincough), but no salmonella for me!

Quickie Banana Pudding
adapted from Nabisco

1/2 cup granulated sugar + more for sprinkling
1/3 cup flour
dash salt
3 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Nilla Wafers
3-4 bananas, sliced

Preheat oven to 350F.

Using a double boiler (or stack pots if you don’t have one), combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour, salt, egg yolks and milk. Stir constantly and cook for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

Spread a thin layer of custard in a 1 1/2 quart baking dish. Add a layer of Nilla wafers, then a layer of banana slices, then pour over more custard. Repeat these alternating layers about three times, finishing with custard each time. Sprinkle top with more granulated sugar.

Bake 10-15 minutes. Cool slightly, serve with Cool Whip.
