I fail to see how this is homemade?

    I agree. I eagerly clicked on this recipe, but when I saw it called for instant pudding, Eagle Brand (sweetened, condensed) milk and Nilla wafers, I was extremely disappointed. At the very least, it should be re-named Banana Trifle. It’s not quite a true trifle, but the name would at least be less misleading.

Doesn’t look real frugal either.

I agree with you KLW how is this possibly be homemade????

It is still homemade compared to store bought, it just uses some ‘convenience’ foods to speed up the preparation time. It still looks tasty. I do agree that it isn’t the most frugal recipe, but looks worth a try for me. I’m wondering what size of dish to use?

OK…so here is my recipe for HOMEMADE banana pudding:

1 box Nilla wafers
2-3 ripe bananas
1/3 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Line a 3 quart casserole dish with wafers, slice bananas layering them on top of wafers. Layer bananas with more vanilla wafers. Continue alternating layers until casserole dish is full. Set aside.

In a 2 quart saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Slowly stir in milk. Bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until mixture thickens. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Stir in vanilla. Allow to cool slightly then pour over vanilla wafer-banana layers. Refrigerate until cool.

Top with either whipped cream or meringue. If you top with meringue the last layer should be wafers. It should be spread on top while the pudding is still hot. If topping with whipped cream the last layer should be bananas and you should completely cool the pudding before adding the whipped cream.

Now that`s what I call homemade. I`ve made this before and it is yummy, much better than the instant puddings.
