How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. Peel bananas, and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Place in a 2-qt. baking dish, and sprinkle with light brown sugar and butter. Bake 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Let cool 30 minutes. Gently mash into chunks.

Step 2

Whisk together granular sweetener, cornstarch, and salt in a large heavy saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk and half-and-half. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Whisk egg yolk until slightly thickened. Gradually whisk about 1 cup hot cream mixture into yolk. Add yolk mixture to remaining cream mixture, whisking constantly. Whisk in vanilla.

Step 4

Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, discarding solids. Cool 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Place plastic wrap directly on cream mixture; chill 8 to 24 hours.

Step 5

Pour mixture into freezer container of a 1 1/2-qt. electric ice-cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions; stir in bananas and crushed vanilla wafers halfway through freezing. Let stand at room temperature 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
