  • Place bowl over simmering water; cook, whisking, until thick, 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Divide bananas among six 8-ounce ramekins (or use a 1 1/2-quart dish). Pour hot-pudding mixture over bananas. Smooth tops, submerging bananas. Cover with plastic, and refrigerate until set, 1 hour or up to overnight. Garnish with crumbled cookies and whipped cream, if desired.

good recipe but it took about 30 min instead of the 10 in the recipe to thicken. I did it exactly (I think!) - the only thing I can think of -maybe I was whisking too briskly, dissipating the heat too quickly - it seemed, when I realized this, I slowed down to a very very slow stir and it finally began to thicken (although, still very slow) - I used 2% milk, since that's what I had, could this make a difference I wonder?
