BANANA PUDDING SQUARES

Yesterday I Made:
BANANA PUDDING SQUARES for DESSERT.
Recipe from VEGNEWS August 2009 issue.
Vanilla pudding, layer of diced bananas and a crunchy crust.

This is actually the second time I made this recipe.

The first time, I followed the directions as written in the magazine but it didn't set at all.
The recipe says to mix the cornstarch, sugar and salt in a pot.
Pour a little bit of soymilk and form a paste.
Add the remaining soymilk and whisk until it comes to a boil.
Then pour over the diced bananas and crust and refrigerate until firm.

The second time, I mixed the sugar and salt in a pot.
Then I added the soymilk and heated it until simmering.
While waiting for it to come to a simmer, I whisked the cornstarch and a some warm soymilk
(from pot).
And then I added it to the pot and whisked until boiling and thickened.
Then poured it over the diced bananas and crust and refrigerated until firm.
And it worked out great.
Better than great!!!

This dessert is one of the best we've ever had.
There are no words to describe it.

Oh yum! I got this recipe in the mail too and was intrigued. Thanks for your tips on getting it to set... I might get brave and give it a try, yours looks absolutely scrumptious.

Mmmm...bananas and pudding. You're right...no words to describe it. I guess I'll have to buy the magazine, make the recipe, and try it myself:)

I have this recipe dogearred to make--I'm glad you troubleshooted it first :) I was thinking about making these for a pool party--do you think they would stand up in the heat or will they just melt all over? What was the final consistency? Jello-like or more creamy?
