Good ole comfort food. Homemade Banana Pudding - could anything be better??
Add boiling water & butter and stir to combine and turn heat on medium. Heat until butter is melted
Mix milk and beaten egg yolk together in separate container and pour into the pudding and stir.
OPTIONAL: For Banana Pudding, add 1 mashed banana now
Continue to cook over medium heat until thickened. When pudding is thick remove from heat and add vanilla extract.
Allow pudding to cool slightly - either serve warm or cover top of pudding with cling wrap to keep skin from forming and store in the refrigerator.
OPTIONAL - For Banana Pudding, add chopped bananas atop a bed of vanilla wafers, ladle on pudding & top with additional vanilla wafers as desired.
NOTE: Can use up to 3 yolks for a richer pudding
