Creamy Banana Pudding

Creamy Banana Pudding

Thick, creamy banana pudding is topped with a vanilla wafer and slices of ripe banana in this timeless, easy recipe.


4 (1/2 cup) servings


  • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup Domino® Granulated Sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon banana extract
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 large ripened bananas, mashed
  • 1 banana, sliced, for garnish
  • vanilla wafers, for garnish


In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, sugar, egg yolks, butter and extract. Stir constantly until mixture has thickened, approximately 10 to 12 minutes.

Mix cornstarch and water in a small cup until cornstarch has dissolved. Add cornstarch mixture into saucepan, one teaspoon at a time. Turn heat to simmer. Stir until pudding mixture thickens; remove from heat.

Add mashed bananas; stir until combined and smooth. There may be a few specks of mashed banana, which is fine.

Pour mixture into serving cups or a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

When ready to serve, garnish with sliced banana and vanilla wafers.
