Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 6 servings

Strawberry jam provides a sweet surprise in this reduced-fat, old-fashioned banana pudding.


1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups skim milk
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
30 low-fat vanilla wafters
2 ripe bananas, sliced
2 tablespoons strawberry jam


  1. Combine sugar and cornstarch in a heavy saucepan; stir well.
  2. Whisk together milk and egg yolks in a mixing bowl.  Gradually add milk-egg mixture to sugar and cornstarch in the saucepan.  Bring to a boil over medium-low heat and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Stir in vanilla.
  3. Spoon 1/4 cup pudding mixture along bottom of a 9x9x2-inch pan.  Arrange half the vanilla wafers on top.  Top each wafer with a banana slice.  Spread half the remaining pudding on top.  Spread carefully with jam and then layer with remaining wafers.  Top each wafer again with a banana slice.  Cover with remaining pudding and serve immediately or refrigerate.
