Easter Idea

How cute is this???

I found this picture, and thought I would share it. I will be making banana pudding tomorrow, and will defiantly add a cute little peep at the top! I think I will fill my pudding in mason jars instead, and maybe tie a cute bow around the lip of the jar.

Here's my favorite recipe for banana pudding:

  • 2 cups Milk, 2% Or Higher
  • ⅔ cups Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 whole Egg Yolk
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 3 whole Bananas, Peeled And Sliced
  • 50 whole Vanilla Wafers
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 3 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Vanilla, For The Whipped Cream

Preparation Instructions

Prepare a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium sauce pan, whisk together the milk, sugar, cornstarch, salt, egg, and egg yolk. Once well-combined, place the pan over medium heat and cool until thick and bubbling.

Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter and vanilla extract, and whisk until completely melted. Pour the custard through a strainer into a separate bowl and cover with plastic wrap to cool slightly.

In the prepared casserole, place a layer of the sliced bananas, then top that with a layer of the vanilla wafer cookies. Pour over 1/3 of the custard and spread to the edges. Repeat this process twice more, then top the last layer of custard with a layer of vanilla wafers. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least four hours.

Whip the heavy cream with the vanilla and the powdered sugar until it reaches soft peaks. Spread the whipped cream over the chilled pudding. Top with crushed vanilla wafer cookies.
