Banana Pudding

Banana pudding

Tommy and my kids love banana pudding, but not the out of the box kind.  The kind that has the homemade vanilla pudding and loaded with bananas and vanilla wafers.  This is so much better than the recipe you will find on the back of the banana pudding box and is not at hard to make.  I think once you try this, you will never go back to the box.

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/8 tsp. salt

2 3/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons butter

1 tsp. vanilla

4 bananas

1/2 box vanilla wafers

In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt.  Gradually stir in the milk until smooth.  Stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium heat and cook 1 minute until thickened.  Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and butter.  Cool slightly.  Line the bottom of a dish with vanilla wafers and then stand a row of vanilla wafers on their sides all around the dish.  Put a layer of pudding, then a layer of sliced bananas. Repeat the layers, finishing with a layer of pudding. Arrange vanilla wafers around the top, along the sides (or cover top with vanilla wafers, like my mom did, if you want) Chill at least an hour before serving.
