Easy Banana Pudding Recipe #MissHomemade

Quick Dessert Recipes

There is nothing like a quick dessert recipe that is scrumptious, and this banana pudding made from scratch is it. You may want to hide it so you can enjoy some for yourself.


1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 TBS butter
4 egg yolks (save the egg whites for the meringue)
vanilla (Nilla) wafers, broke in half (or quartered)
4 large ripe bananas, sliced

Line the bottom of a 9×9 inch dish or a medium bowl with a layer of halved or quartered vanilla wafers. Peel the bananas and slice over the vanilla wafers. 

Combine the sugar, flour and salt in a bowl; set aside.

In a heavy saucepan, beat the egg yolks well. Over medium heat, add the flour mixture to the egg yolks, alternately with the milk and vanilla, stirring constantly.

Bring to a gentle boil and, when the mixture begins to thicken, add the butter, continuing to stir. Keep boiling and stirring until mixture is thick and bubbly. Remove from heat.

Place a layer of banana slices in the baking dish on top of the vanilla wafers. Pour, spreading as necessary, half of the pudding over the banana layer. Put down another layer of vanilla wafers, another layer of banana slices, and cover with the remaining pudding. Top with homemade whipped cream.

I like this with my best banana pudding recipe and many other quick dessert recipes. Enjoy.


1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 TBS white sugar

Beat the heavy cream in a mixing bowl until soft mounds form. Gradually add sugar and whip until stiff peaks form. Chill until ready to top the pie.


I chill the pie well before serving. You may also make my homemade graham crackers, and use 1/2 of my graham cracker crust recipe, bake it and cut into chunks.

Homemade German Chocolate Cake
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 jar caramel or butterscotch topping
1 (8oz) Cool Whip
2 Heath candy bars, broken in pieces

Make sure you bake your cake in a 9×13 pan. Let the cake cool and with a wooden spoon handle punch holes about one inch apart over the entire cake. Pour the whole can of sweet milk into the holes.

Next pour the entire jar of caramel topping over the cake. Spread the Cool Whip over the caramel topping. Last but not least – sprinkle Heath bar pieces over all. I freeze the candy bars and hit them with a hammer to break into pieces.

Refrigerate overnight before serving. This is very important for the flavor of the dessert.

Here’s another quick dessert recipe that is sure to please.


4 egg whites
3/4 cup white sugar
4 egg yolks
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
6 TBS flour
6 TBS cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 quart of mint chocolate chip ice cream (or any flavor)

1/3 cup butter
2-1/2 squares bitter chocolate
3 cups white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1-3/4 cups evaporated milk

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees and you will need a greased jelly roll pan.

Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold in the sugar. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and vanilla together and then add to the egg white mixture.

Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together and fold into the egg mixture. Spread this mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 11-14 minutes.

Turn this cake out onto a powdered sugar surface and roll until cooled. Soften the ice cream in the refrigerator.

Unroll the cooled cake and fill with the softened ice cream. Re-roll and wrap in foil and freeze until ready to serve.

Just before serving, melt the butter and chocolate together and SLOWLY add the sugar and evaporated milk stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Spoon this warm sauce over the ice cream roll and serve.
