Ingredients

  • 4 Cups half & half
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 10 egg yolks
  • 1/2 Cup corn starch
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 Cup banana liquor
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 stick of butter, cubed

Directions

Heat 3 cups of the half & half to a simmer in a stainless steel heavy bottomed sauce pan. Mix the remaining half & half with the cornstarch.

Once simmering, slowly whisk in the cornstarch and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thick.

Remove from the heat. In a separate bowl, whisk the yolks, sugar, banana liquor, and vanilla together. Slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into this and then strain back into the saucepan.

Slowly heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the custard reaches a temperature of 165 degrees.

Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter. Pour into a shallow glass baking dish, cover closely with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.

Banana Pudding Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Banana Pudding Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
