Silky vanilla bean custard is layered with ripe bananas and vanilla wafers to make this traditional Southern dessert.
Prepare a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium sauce pan, whisk together the milk, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla bean paste (if using), salt, egg, and egg yolk. Once well-combined, place the pan over medium heat and cool until thick and bubbling.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter (and vanilla extract if you are using) and whisk until completely melted. Pour the custard through a strainer into a separate bowl and cover with plastic wrap to cool slightly.
In the prepared casserole, place a layer of the sliced bananas, then top that with a layer of the vanilla wafer cookies. Pour over 1/3 of the custard and spread to the edges. Repeat this process twice more, then top the last layer of custard with a layer of vanilla wafers. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least four hours.
Whip the heavy cream with the vanilla and the powdered sugar until it reaches soft peaks. Spread the whipped cream over the chilled pudding. Top with crushed vanilla wafer cookies.
Something magical happens when this cake goes in the oven. The top turns into this wonderfully light, fluffy, and moist cake, while the bottom pools into a warm lemon pudding. The whole thing tastes incredibly comforting, but light.
A rich and chocolatey pudding with just a hint of orange, this simple dessert pairs especially well with fresh fruit.
I absolutely adore the flavors of chocolate and cinnamon together so I tweaked a chocolate pudding recipe to mimic the flavor profile of Mexican hot chocolate. Want some? You know you do.
Measure out the ingredients and grab a heavy-bottomed saucepan, a whisk, and some dessert bowls and we’ll make it together. You won’t believe how fast and easy the process is.
