on the table, cooling, is one of our favorite deserts! Banana pudding. It's sort of like a banana cream pie, but larger--first, I crushed one of the 3 inner pkgs in a box of graham crackers, added about 2 T. each sugar and soft butter and blended and smooshed it and spread it to cover the bottom of a glass cake pan. Then I cooked up the following:
1/3 cup corn starch
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
Mix thoroughly, and add 1 qt. milk to it and cook over medium heat, stirring, until it thickens and comes to a boil Then add 1 T. vanilla extract and stir.
While the pudding is heating, slice 4 or 5 bananas and arrange them over the graham cracker crust.
Once the pudding is done, pour it over the bananas. Then I like to take a handfull of shredded coconut and scatter it over the pudding. Today, I allso scattered a smallish handfull of chocolate sprinkles over that..it's now sitting next to me, drawing me like a magnet...
can you smell it???
