SO...why banana pudding for fathers day?!

Well first of, my dad LOVES banana pudding. I know not all guy's like banana pudding, but this one does anyway and that's what counts. Make what YOUR dad likes, or loves :)

So here's the recipe for you!

I tripled it so i would have 5 quarts because i have lotsa siblings that like this also :)
But for you, just in case you don't want to make a bunch i will give you the recipe that makes 2 1/2 quarts.

Ingredients:

60 - 70 Vanilla Wafers
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 (12-ounce) cans evaporated milk
3 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 bananas (or however many you want)

You can eat it warm, but its best cold, and its thicker so it really depends what temperature you like.
