Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 inch) baked pastry shell, cooled

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, combine the sugar, flour, and salt. Add milk in gradually while stirring gently. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is bubbly. Keep stirring and cook for about 2 more minutes, and then remove from the burner.
  • Stir a small quantity of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks, and immediately add egg yolk mixture to the rest of the hot mixture. Cook for 2 more minutes; remember to keep stirring. Remove the mixture from the stove, and add butter and vanilla. Stir until the whole thing has a smooth consistency.
  • Slice bananas into the cooled baked pastry shell. Top with pudding mixture.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes. Chill for an hour.

Notes

Cook's Notes:
  • You may use 3 tablespoons of cornstarch in place of 1/3 cup flour (I use cornstarch).
  • The pie crust can be store-bought or homemade.
