This banana pudding was a hit. The pudding thickened nicely in the saucepan. Prep was quick and easy both before and after the pudding cooled in the fridge...don't be scared by the 2 hour 30 min time, just set aside enough time for the pudding to cool in the fridge. This was my first time making pudding from scratch, and these directions were easy for this beginner to follow.
The custard was not as thick as store-bought pudding, but it did have the consistency of pudding, and the flavors were delicious. Everyone in our family enjoyed this dessert.
This filling was still LIQUID after all my whisking (i did it for 20 minutes) and after being in the fridge for HOURS! I am so dissapointed that I even tried it.
