No yolk?

I got a notion to make some homemade vanilla pudding (I don't have a pudding mix on hand right now) because I have some nice bananas plus an abundance of milk in the fridge. A banana cream pie would be so nice for Sunday supper.

So, I go online to look for vanilla pudding recipes. I find lots of them but they're just milk, sugar, cornstarch and vanilla. That confuses me because I thought it had to have egg yolks in it. Or, is that just lemon pudding?

Well, I'm going to give the yolk-less vanilla pudding recipe a try and hope it's not too bland.

Betty Crocker has the custard filling I use for my Coconut Cream pie. Just omit the coconut and add bananas. Let me know how the yolk-less pudding tastes.

I have never made my own pudding. Let us know how it worked out

Well, I do find the lack of the yolks strange, too. I thought all homemade puddings had to have the yolk or they wouldn't work!!!

The homemade pudding was dreadful. I wound up throwing it out--lesson learned!
