Banana Pudding

This banana pudding recipe from Hilah Cooking was so easy to make, and it's so good I'll never make boxed pudding again.  I was actually really surprised at just how quick this was to make, it's really not much more effort than making the cook and serve puddings and this way you know exactly what went into it.
 

1/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 cups whole milk
2 egg yolks
2 tbsp butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large banana, peeled and sliced
vanilla wafer cookies
 
In a saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar, cornstarch, and milk. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved, add egg yolks and butter and stir constantly until it starts to bubble.  Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and leave to cool.
 
To assemble the banana pudding you can either make one large bowl or as I did, individual puddings.  Place a layer of vanilla wafers on the bottom of the dish, followed by a layer of banana and a layer of pudding. Repeat layers and end with vanilla wafers. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
