The Best Banana Pudding Ever


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 box vanilla wafer cookies
  • 4-5 ripe bananas, sliced
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, flour, and salt. Add the egg yolks and milk, whisking until well combined.
  2. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon (about 10-12 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Let it cool slightly.
  3. In a large glass dish or trifle bowl, layer the vanilla wafer cookies, banana slices, and pudding mixture. Repeat the layers until all ingredients are used, ending with a layer of pudding.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar together until stiff peaks form. Spread the whipped cream over the top layer of pudding.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight to allow the flavors to meld together.
