Banana Pudding


  • 1/2 box Nilla wafers
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2-3 ripe bananas, sliced

Pastry Cream:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs yolk
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt


  • Whipped cream or Swiss Meringue


Pastry Cream:

  • In a medium saucepan, bring the milk, 1/4 cup sugar, butter, salt and vanilla to a gentle boil. Remove form the heat.
  • In a medium size bowl, whisk the egg yolks, 1/4 sugar and cornstarch. 
  • In small amounts, whisk a little of the hot milk into the egg bowl. This is to temper the eggs yolk. Once the bottom of the bowl is warm, slowly whisk in the remaining warm milk.
  • Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and whisk constantly over medium-low heat about 2-3 minutes until it thickens and becomes a pudding texture.
  • Transfer the pastry cream to a container. Press a piece of plastic wrap onto the surface of the pastry cream to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate.


  • Whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into pastry cream.
  • In a large bowl or small cups, assemble the banana pudding by adding a layer of Nilla wafers, followed by pastry cream mixture and top with a layer of banana slices. Repeat layers. Top dish with whipped cream or Swiss Meringue.
