"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


Maw got her Nanner Puddin recipe on the PC, here it is, if you like Banana Pudding you will like this one, it is always better the second day to me.

NANNY’S ‘NANNER PUDDIN’

Vanilla/Banana Custard Pudding with Wafers

3 Cups Sugar
2 Tbsp. Cornstarch
1/2 Tsp. Salt
2 Cups Whole Milk
1 Can Carnation Evaporated Milk
1 Tbsp. Butter
6 Large Egg Yolks (set aside the egg whites for meringue)
2 Tsp. Pure Bourbon Vanilla (or 1 vanilla bean)
6 Large Ripe Bananas
1 Box Nabisco Vanilla Wafers

Directions: Beat egg yolks thoroughly and set aside. Add whole milk, evaporated milk, salt, cornstarch, and sugar. Blend thoroughly and cook mixture in a double boiler. (A double boiler can be made by using one pan fitted in another pan, with boiling water in bottom pan.) Cook, over medium heat, stirring constantly (mixture can scorch quickly), until thickened and bubbly. When mixture begins to thicken and bubble, remove about one cup of mixture, cool and slowly stir in the egg yolks (make sure the mixture is cool enough not to cook the eggs separately). Cook 2-3 more minutes and remove from heat. Add vanilla and butter, stirring to blend well. (If using fresh vanilla bean, place in mixture and stir until pudding custard gets to desired taste, then remove the vanilla bean.) Set vanilla custard aside.

Line a large baking dish (CorningWare type works well) or pan with vanilla wafers. Add sliced banana pieces (approx.1/4-3/8 inch thick) until they cover the vanilla wafers. Pour some of the vanilla pudding over the wafers and bananas. Repeat this process until all the wafers, bananas and vanilla custard are layered and used.


Perfect Meringue

6 Egg Whites
1 Teaspoon Bourbon Vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon Cream of Tarter
8 Tablespoons Sugar

Directions: Beat egg whites with vanilla and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. (The whites will whip fluffier if they are at room temperature.) Gradually add the sugar, beating till stiff and glossy and all sugar is dissolved.

Spread meringue evenly over the wafer, banana and pudding filling in the cooking dish (at room temperature), making sure meringue covers top, sides and corners. Meringue sometimes shrinks. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) 12 to 15 minutes, or until the peaks of the meringue are golden brown.

Cool, then refrigerate, chill; or may be served warm if desired.

I think I've created a "monster" here!

Yeah - banana pudding!
Tell my fellow "Aquarian" - Thanks!
(Too bad, it has that much sugar!!)

Nice Salsa recipe!
Thank you!
"Chef--M--"!
(Remember, boys and girls - you're not really, supposed to refer to that
"un-nameable", person as: "Mike")
Like "Prince", he has a name, that is "unpronounceable"!
(I can translate it into "human", intelligible, form - do you really, want to hear that much swearing!?!)
I thought not!!

Thanks Mike, hopefully I can figure out about how much of each to put in the salsa. That stuff is just good eating.

I don't like the artificial banana pudding at all, I really do like Judy's it is just goood. When she first made it for me I didn't think it was going to thicken up but once it cooled off it thickened just fine.

Awww man, now you are hitting below the belt, banana nut bread is one of my favorites of all time, I could eat that when I am not even hungry, hopefully someone has a good recipe for it.

Banana Bread!?!
Here goes -
For the best banana flavor - let the bananas darken (the skins) -
Even if they're "black" - might still be fine.

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg
1 cup, mashed bananas
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup, chopped walnuts or pecans

Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a bread pan
Combine the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
Make a "well" in the center of this mixture.

Another bowl - combine the egg, bananas, sugar, cooking oil
Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients - all at once.
(Lumpy is OK!)
Don't "over-mix"!
Fold in the nuts.

Spoon batter into prepared pan
350 degree oven for 50 to 55 minutes - toothpick comes out clean.
Cool - cool on rack.
Wrap and store overnight - "frig".
Then slice.

Try not to eat the whole thing at one time!

Here's a copy of your recipe Creeper. It sure looks good!


Banana Bread/Muffins

1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
pinch of salt

4 ripe bananas mashed well
2 eggs
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl, stir well, set aside.
Combine all wet ingredients in a large bowl, stir well, and add dry ingredients. Mix together until just combined. DO NOT over mix!


Bread:
Pour into prepared loaf pan. (I use non-stick spray)
Bake for 50 min., or until done.

To test a loaf use your finger to push down on the top, if it quickly springs back, it is done. If your finger sinks or there is no spring, bake a bit longer. OR try inserting a tooth pick into the center of the loaf. It should come out clean. If it is gooey, it is not finished baking!

Muffins:
This recipe makes 18 smallish muffins in a regular size muffin pan.
For muffins, bake at 375 degrees, for 16-18 minutes (approx.). When
you touch the top of a muffin and they spring back, they are done!

Rossi, I got a question for you, why do you just grease 1/2 inch up the sides of the pan? Also, would Olive Oil work ok or is there another that is best?

Another thing I really love is good bread, anyone got a recipe for good yeast bread and other types of bread?
