Makes 6-8 individual Banana Pudding Pies

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour

  • 2 whole eggs

  • 4 egg yolks (keep the whites for omelets)

  • 2 cups whole milk

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 4 bananas, sliced

  • vanilla wafers

  • homemade whipped cream (recipe below)

In a large cast iron skillet or saucepan, whisk sugar, flour, eggs, yolks and milk together. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until your mixture is thick like pudding; this will take about 10 to 12 minutes. Once it reaches this thickness, remove from heat and add vanilla. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours then top with homemade whipped cream and a banana slice in the center. 


  • 2 cups heavy cream

  • 5 Tablespoons powdered sugar

To make homemade whipped cream, with a whisk or hand mixer, beat heavy cream. (Always start with a cold bowl and beaters that you have placed in the freezer)  Add sugar then whisk or beat until desired consistency for whipped cream. Refrigerate any leftovers in an air-tight container. 

To assemble the individual pies, place four or five vanilla wafers at the bottom of ramekins. Next, add banana slices, then add the banana pudding pie filling; then top with homemade whipped cream. Repeat layers if desired!
