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.
