I make this pudding to see if the texture was grainy and it was as I expected. Cooking egg whites in a sauce or pudding is a culinary no-no. The flavor was good but that texture.....I would suggest 6 egg yolk and NO white. The texture will be velvet.

I really liked this easy recipe, all the ingredients on hand. The only thing I was disappointed about was the size of the dish I made it in. Be sure to use only an 8x8 or a 8x10 dish. I used a 9x13 dish and the pudding was only about 1/2 inch deep. I was so disappointed. Next time I will just double the recipe for a 9x13. Otherwise, very good.

This Recipe is acceptional, but the milk ingredient in it should be partially replace with heavy cream or half-n-half. I stirred the milk to be thicken for almost 10 minutes, and it lacked the fat within to thicken. If the creator made a note about using part heavy cream, then my banana pudding would come out looking 5 times thicker and it would not take 3 hours to just be less thin. Next time, I will (and to everyone else), use at least 1/4 of the requested milk indgredient amount(ex: reciepe ask for 1 cup of milk, instead...use 3/4 of milk and 1/4 of heavy cream).
