Old-Fashioned Banana Pudding With S Cookies
You will love how easy it is to make this old-fashioned banana pudding with S cookies.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
  • 3 medium ripe bananas
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsps flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3 tbsps butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 package Italian S Cookies
  • Nutmeg (optional)
  1. In a medium saucepan add milk, butter and 1 cup of the whipping cream, vanilla along with the over-ripe bananas on medium heat and bring to a boil stirring constantly.
  2. In a small bowl add your salt, sugar, flour and cornstarch and mix.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and mix in your sugar mixture until completely dissolved.
  4. In a small bowl crack eggs and separate the yolks and whisk. Temper the eggs with a teaspoon or two of the hot milk and stir quickly.
  5. Then add the egg yolk mixture to the hot milk mixture and stir to combine.
  6. Put back on the stove and bring to a boil stirring constantly for 1 or 2 minutes until thickened.
  7. If you want a chunky banana pudding leave the bananas chunky but if you want a smooth banana pudding you can use a banana masher or hand blender which I did to make it smoothe.
  8. In a medium to a large round baking dish or serving bowl add a layer of Italian S cookies on the bottom then top with some of the banana pudding. Do this until all of the cookies and pudding are gone.
  9. Add a plastic wrap to the top so it doesn't create a skin and refrigerate for 40 minutes or until cold.
  10. In a bowl or stand mixer add the last cup of whipping cream and a bit of sugar if you want sweet whipping cream. I'd add about 2 tablespoons or leave it as is. Blend for 5 minutes or until a whipping cream forms peaks.
  11. Put the whipping cream in a piping bag and make an x design across the centre of the bowl. Optional
  12. Top with sprinkles of fresh nutmeg and serve. Optional
  13. I also added Graham Cracker cookies. Optional
