This is a closely guarded secret...kept in the safe...But becasue of who it is..MM...

Uncle Bob's World Famous Banana Pudding...

1 qt whole milk
1 can Evaporated milk
3 cups sugar
4 Tbls Corn starch
5 egg yolks
1 stick butter..no subsitute
1 Tbl vanilla
Bananas...as many or as few as you like.

Put all of the milk in a sauce pan...reserving 3/4 cup
heat until just warm...Mix dry stuff, eggs, and 3/4 cup milk in a bowl.
Add to the warm milk stirring constantly until mixture thickens..Usually just before it boils..Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Cool slightly..

Start with a layer vanilla wafers on the bottom of your dish..then bananas..the pudding mixture...Repeat untill all pudding is used.
Top with whipped cream (the best)...or if you wanna.. use the whites for meringue..
Best several hours later...Refrigerate if you have any left....

My contribution Michelemarie, an old, very simple dessert that seperates into two layers. Great with tinned/or homecooked fruit. (Especially black plums. )

Spanish Cream

1 Tbsp Gelatine
2 Tbsps Water
2 Cups Milk
2 Eggs, separated
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla Essence ( but pure if possible)

Combine gelatine and water then leave to swell for 10 minutes. Heat milk in top of a double boiler until almost to the boil. In a separate bowl beat the egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale. Pour heated milk onto the yolk/sugar mix. Return to top of double boiler. Cook over a low heat stirring constantly until mix is thick enough to coat back of your wooden spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
Dissolve gelatine mix over a bowl of hot water and stir into the custard mixture. Chill until it has the consistency of raw egg whites.
Beat the 2 egg whites until stiff and fold into chilled mix. Pour into a wet mold and chill until firm.
Unmold onto a serving plate.
Serves 6.

This may seem like alot of mucking about but the end result, for so few ingredients, is just lovely.

I just found this thread looking for something very different and have to thank Lynan for the Spanish cream recipe. It is one of my favourite puddings, something my mother used to make often when I was very little. The only thing she did differntly was rather than mold it she would serve in the glass bowl she had chilled it in....makes it easier for a mid week kids pudding. Thank you for the memeory jog Lynan, I'll make this for DH very soon!

Michelemarie.....it is just vanilla out of a bottle. We call it vanilla essence. Hope you get to try the recipe, and do let us know what you think.

Lulu....you are welcome!! Do you have the Edmonds Cookbook? It has so many of my childhood favourites in it, Spanish Cream included. And Brandy Snaps and Yoyo's and Melting Moments and Anzac Biscuits and Afghans....etc...etc...etc.

lololol

I have a battered old copy of Edmonds but its in storage in UK. :( Having thought about it, and sort advice here I realised I can get recipes for most things online now...but its not quite the same is it? Things that flicking through you might be inspired to make are not necessarily what I think upo myself or reading here when planning the weeks meals!

Afgans are my DH's favourite, my mother makes them for him when ever he visits her because he loves them so much! I have never made him Anzac biscuits, maybe i should...

You could just make creme anglaise--known in the South as boiled custard. Milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla. Cook over simmering water until it coats a spoon. Store in the fridge and drink it, pour over pound cake or use as a base for ice cream.
Milk will freeze if you have too much.

Boiled custard. DH's mother probably made the equivalent of a water tower over her lifetime!!

4C milk
1/2C sugar or to taste
6-8 egg yolks
2 tsp. vanilla

Cook over the simmering water, stirring until it coats a spoon--about 170*. Do not overheat or the eggs will scramble. You can strain after cooking to get any small bits out.

PA Baker, I used your recipe for the Lemon pudding except I decided to throw it in a chocolate crust and I must say it was one of the most delightful pies I've ever had. It had a very refreshing taste and there was just enough chocolate to compliment it very well.
