"This was my mother's recipe. All of us children thought her banana pudding was the best. My daughter, Elaine T. McGruder, make me a cookbook out of the recipes I've collected. She said when she looked through these recipes, she was reminded of the bumper sticker that says, 'Life is short, eat dessert first.'"

Ingredients

1 (11-ounce) box vanilla wafers
4large or 6 small ripe bananas, sliced
3 egg yolks, well beaten
1/2cup cornstarch or flour
1 1/2cups evaporated milk
1teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Layer vanilla wafers and bananas in a bowl until it is almost full.
  2. Mix egg yolks with sugar, cornstarch, and milk in a saucepan.
  3. Cook on low heat until thick. Add vanilla and pour over wafers and bananas.

Tips From Our Test Kitchen: This recipe is still sweet with one cup of sugar. Try substituting a no-fat version of evaporated milk for a lighter dessert. If desired, pudding can be topped with meringue or whipped cream.
