This was too simple for words! Tasty too! I don't always care for the taste of eggs so I gave this a try just to see if it would make a good banana pudding. It made an excellent, and fast banana pudding. This pudding, a few vanilla wafers and a couple of sliced bananas and life is good.
This is the same recipe I've used for years, so I can vouch for it. You can add nearly any flavoring, including cocoa, (up to 1/4 cup). It's also a good base for many kinds of fruit (I use the fruit water with dry milk, instead of plain milk). I usually don't continue to let it cook after adding the vanilla...probably just from habit.
