Wow! Really good homemade banana pudding! I picked this recipe because it was very close to my french pastry cream recipe, which is out of this world, and it tasted very similar except not as thick. Only change I did was to double the recipe so i would have a deep 9x13" dish and good thing I did. I probably added 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons vanilla. I added until it was to my liking and after doubling everything else, I left the butter at 2 tablespoons (only to save on fat a little). Also, the author didn't mention if you bring it to the boil, but I figured since it's eggs, you have to. And that was when it got really thick anyway. I was a bit hesitant to put hot filling over the bananas, I thought they might turn black. So I whisked in 2 ice cubes to cool it a little more and poured it over the bananas and cookies very warm, not hot. But to my relief, the bananas did not turn one bit brown. I topped my dish with whipped cream. Thanks for a great recipe!
