creamy vanilla wafers banana pudding

creamy vanilla wafers banana pudding
Serves: 6 | Preparation time: 20 minutes | Refrigeration time: 1 hour
What You Need
5 ripe bananas, sliced thinly
2 cups milk
3 eggs yolks, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2/3 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour (or 3 tablespoons corn flour)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 box (12 ounce) of vanilla wafer cookies or biscuits
Whipped cream, optional, for serving

What You Do
1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, flour and salt. Gradually stir in milk,
a little at a time to make sure the flour is dissolved. Add in eggs.
2. Cook over low to medium heat, stirring constantly for about
10 minutes, or until mixture thickens and becomes custard like. Remove from heat.
3. Stir in butter and vanilla. Set aside to cool.
4. Using a casserole dish/glass container, arrange a layer of cookies followed by a layer of bananas.
5. Pour half the custard over the cookie and banana layer, making sure the custard covers the bananas to prevent discoloration.
6. Arrange another layer of cookies and bananas, and cover with the remaining custard.
7. Allow to cool for approximately 15-30 minutes before refrigerating for at least 1 hour. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
When stirring the custard, make sure you reach the bottom, sides and corners of the saucepan to prevent custard from sticking and scorching
