Not Yo’ Mamas Pudding

Banana Pudding

I have never tasted banana pudding before until two weeks ago at a Barbecue restaurant. I instantly fell in love with it and could not forget how satisfyingly beautiful it tasted. That was three weeks ago. I was craving to have this pudding since then. I asked around at my workplace to see if anybody has a guaranteed recipe that is easy to put together. And here is the recipe that I tried. It makes enough for at least 15 people. I had banana pudding to eat for a week and had shared one whole pie dish with a family. I substituted vanilla wafers for Chessmen cookies.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Can sweetened condensed Milk- 1 (14-ounce)
  • Frozen whipped topping- 1 (12 ounces)
  • Pepperidge Farm Chessmen Cookies- (2 bags)
  • Bananas- 6 to 8 sliced
  • Milk- 2 Cups
  • Instant French vanilla pudding mix- 1 box (5 ounces)
  • Softened cream cheese- 1 box (8 ounces)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Line the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch dish with 1 bag of cookies and layer bananas on top.
  2. In a bowl, combine the milk and pudding mix and blend well using a handheld electric mixer.
  3. Using another bowl, combine the cream cheese and condensed milk together and mix until smooth.
  4. Fold the whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture. Add the cream cheese mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until well blended.
  5. Pour the mixture over the cookies and bananas and cover with the remaining cookies. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Woke up dazed feeling amazed. Wanted to do something new but quick and special too.

There isn’t really a set recipe to make banana pancakes. Basically, I used 1 large banana, 1/4 cup of flour, 2 egg and a bit of cinnamon sugar. Spread some confectioners sugar on top with some blueberries drizzled with Maple syrup.

 

It’s been a while since I’ve last updated this blog. But fear not ! I am back and cooking again. Just trying to get my life together. Picking up the pieces of the old life to serve my new life. So here is to something new. A piece of banana bread with some indulging vanilla ice-cream.

  • Ripe bananas – 5-7
  • Eggs – 3
  • Oil – ½ cup
  • Sugar – ½ cup
  • Cinnamon – 1 Tbs
  • Flour – 2 cups
  • Butter – ½ cup
  • Brown sugar – 1 cup

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Smash 4 bananas in a bowl. Add the eggs, oil, sugar and cinnamon and mix it together.
  2. Pour the flour and combine everything together.
  3. To make the caramel, in a pan heat up the butter until melted. Add the sugar and bring to boil.
  4. On a baking dish, pour the caramel in first. Slice two bananas in pieces and assemble them up on top of the caramel filling in the baking dish.

Such a shame .. but better late than never. So recently I have been on a nutella kick. I have discovered a new way of making French toast with a new found gem in my kitchen cabinet.

I can never get tired of baked goods .. they make the house smell good, they make me feel warm and remind me of memories from my childhood (I WISH .. lol ). My mom was never big on baking. But since I partook a great interest in cooking … I plan on making it a part of our lives from now on. This is a new recipe I wanted to try Nutella, banana croissants .. consist of just 4 ingredients : Nutella, banana, Pillsbury frozen croissant dough and icing sugar.
