mix together:

2 Tbls cornstarch

1/2 cup sugar

2 egg yolks

dash salt

Directions:
Directions:
Add 1/4 cup - 1/2 cup or so scalded milk to cornstarch mixture (this is so the egg yolks don't cook), stir well, then add to remaining scalded milk. Stir with wire whisk on medium to medium/low heat until thickened. I stir constantly to prevent burning.



Layer with vanilla wafers and bananas, put 1/2 pudding on top of that and repeat layers. Top with fresh whipping cream.



For a 10x13 tripled the pudding recipe, used 1 box of wafers, and probably 8-10 bananas. Also, my grandmother noted NO VANILLA!!
