The Best Homemade Banana Pudding Recipe

This guaranteed crowd-pleasing delicious classic Southern Banana Pudding is homemade from scratch and incredibly easy to prepare.

This traditional southern recipe has been around since the early 20th century and some would argue even bore then. 


– eggs: yolks and whites separated – sugar – all-purpose flour – whole milk – sea salt – vanilla extract

Add 6 whisked egg yolks, ¾ cup of sugar, flour, milk, and salt to a medium-size saucepot and cook over low heat for about 12-15 minutes while constantly stirring until it becomes very thick.

Remove the custard from the stove and stir in the vanilla. Cool completely in the refrigerator, which takes about 45 minutes.

Once it’s cool slowly add the custard into a stand mixer with the whipped cream recipe and mix on low speed with the whisk attachment until completely combined.

Evenly spread 1/3 of the whipped cream custard to the bottom of a deep 13×9 casserole pan and then layer on the wafers and bananas followed up by adding on another 1/3 of the whipped cream custard.

Repeat the process 1 more time until all of the ingredients have been used. Set aside.
