Sometimes there is nothing as soothing as a fresh bowl of homemade banana pudding. This recipe is easy to gather and cook. Roughly 45 minutes in prep time and an hour for setting as cold pudding. No time to waste, I know your mouth is watering already, so check the list below and begin your trip down memory lane with this tasty bowl of old fashioned banana pudding with a twist.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 1 hour
Ready in: 2 hours
Yields: 6 Servings


  • 1 and 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Corn Starch
  • Pinch Salt
  • 3 cups Whole Milk, 2% can be used just add 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • splash of Coke
  • 2 Large Egg Yolks
  • 3 Bananas

Easy Instructions

  1. In a medium sauce pan, whisk together all the dry ingredients; sugar, corn starch and salt.
  2. Add 3 cups of milk and continue to whisk until mixed well together, then place over medium heat.
  3. Continue to mix with your whisk while heating. Have ready your beaten egg yolks in a small bowl. Once milk mixture becomes warm to the touch, then add around a quarter cup of warm milk to egg yolks, whisking until smooth. Then you can return the milk and yolk mixture to the pan and continue to stir with whisk for next 10 minutes.
  4. After about 10 minutes the mixture should begin to thicken. Continue with the whisk until it thickens to pudding consistency. Do not fret, this may take another 10 minutes of stirring with whisk, depending on your weather conditions. Just remember to not stop stirring or bottom will scorch. Remove from heat and add honey, vanilla and splash of coke and whisk until mixed. Slice bananas into the mix and stir with a spoon.
  5. Pour into a bowl or individual serving dishes and let stand in the fridge for and hour to set. Be sure to use some saran wrap, resting right on top of pudding mix. This will stop any milk skin that may form while setting.

Other Suggestions For Use And Flavor of Banana Pudding

You can use this same recipe for pie and the ever popular vanilla wafer cookies. Depending on your taste buds, you can add cinnamon, nutmeg or all spice. Add nuts or shredded coconuts just after removing from heat. And if you really like those vanilla wafers, then think outside of box and try peanut butter cookies or chocolate wafers. Whatever way you decide to twist up this homemade banana pudding, know you will enjoy every creamy custard bite, down to licking the bowl!
