Directions

Combine the milk and butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring gently to melt the butter.

Mix together 5 tablespoons of sugar and the cornstarch in a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoons water and mix to create a paste, and then whisk into the milk mixture. Raise the heat to medium and cook, stirring, until thick and bubbly, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap (make sure the plastic is touching the pudding to prevent a skin from forming) and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Combine the whipping cream with the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

Create a layer of wafers on the bottom of an 8- by 8-inch dish, and then add a layer of bananas and a layer of pudding. Repeat to make a second layers. Top with whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight before serving.

    very runny. I would have to increase the cornstarch. I went for this recipe bc it had no eggs, and I like to eliminate eggs due to allergies. I used full fat milk, so I know it's not the fault of the milk. If I had used 1%, it would have been worse! I had banana extract and used that, and added a few drops of yellow food coloring to look like the real thing. The only disappointment was that it wasn't pudding, rather it was a drink.
