There's a new post up at The City Farmgirl Blog. What is your Thanksgiving Prayer this year? Come over and visit the Farmgirls at www.maryjanesfarm.com. Here's the link to my latest post.
In that post I mention my Aunt Lillian's Banana Pudding. Now, I don't have a picture of it, but I do want to share the recipe with you. And come Thursday, I'll have a picture!
One of everybody's favorite dishes at our Thanksgiving gathering is Aunt Lillian's Banana Pudding. Aunt Lillian is the matriarch of the family, being the oldest aunt. Many of us cousins are known to sneak over to the dessert table before we serve our plates with dinner.
There is one reason we go there. It's for a spoonful of Aunt Lillian's Banana Pudding. You learn to do this when it happens to you the first time. You finish your dinner and head over to the dessert table for the pudding and what's this? The bowl is empty? THE. BOWL. IS. EMPTY! Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!
So, lesson learned. Next gathering. You "Eat It First."
Aunt Lillian's "Eat It First" Banana Pudding
1 box Vanilla Wafers
3 large ripe bananas, sliced
1 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
2 TBSP flour
2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
8 oz. whipped topping
Mix together sugar, egg yolks, flour and milk.
Stir over medium heat until boiling.
Then remove from heat, and add vanilla.
Layer the bottom of 2-qt pan with half of the vanilla wafers and top with half of the sliced bananas.
Pour half of the pudding on top.
Then, repeat, forming a second layer.
Refrigerate for at least one hour.
Top with whipped topping before serving.
Yep, my first stop on Thursday will be the dish full of Aunt Lillian's Banana Pudding.
