It’s Banana’s at Wild Thyme today! Literally, today we are hosting a kid’s cooking camp with the theme of the day being Curious George. In the story Curious George makes Pancakes and so are our little kiddos, followed by chocolate covered banana pops, monkey crafts, and a Curious George Movie. Then I started thinking, I’m “bananas” about bananas, especially this amazing Nutter Butter Banana Pudding. The pudding recipe dates back over 100 years from my great-grandmother Rose. They could make things taste so good with so little back then. With just some eggs, flour, milk, and vanilla you are well on your way to one of the most mouth-watering bites you’ve had all summer. Trust me, this one is a keeper and perfect for backyard BBQ’s! Enjoy and go Bananas (oh, try the pudding warm, it’s amazing, chill and serve later to your guests)! Please find this most beloved recipe and following video with step by step instruction from my recipe segments with LEX18 at noon with myself and Lee Cruse.
Nutter Butter Banana Pudding
4 Brown Eggs
1 2/3 cup of sugar
2 cups of milk
1 Package of Nutter Butter’s broke in half
1 TSP Vanilla
1 Cup of Cold Water
2 TBSP of Flour
Mix Sugar and milk on medium heat and bring to a boil. Boil about five minutes. Remove from heat and let cool while you beat 4 eggs thoroughly. Temper the eggs adding a little mixture into the eggs slowly to bring up the egg temperature, then add it to the milk mixture and stir continuously. Put the mixture back on heat. Mix about 1 cup of cold water and two heaping TBSP of flour together until smooth. Add to the mixture that is on the stove while stirring. Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract (more if desired) stir until thick. While mixture is thickening, cut the bananas and layer them in a bowl with the halved nutter butters. When the mixture is thick pour over the bananas and cookies in a bowl.
Pudding can then be topped with crushed nutter butters and banana slices and served warm or cold.
