Everyone that I know loves the Original Banana Pudding recipe that’s posted on the side of most Nabisco vanilla wafer boxes and that’s the one that I usually make. It is the one that I used in my classroom for our last lab of the year, but with a deterrents thrown our way I was not sure that we could pull it off. With a fire drill and advisement making the class almost too short to have anything but a glass of milk with vanilla wafers and sliced bananas I had to come up with something or just ditch the lab altogether. At the last-minute I decided to try speeding up the custard by using the microwave. It worked perfectly for me —TWICE! Seven minutes is all it took and that really beats standing over a double boiler for about thirty minutes. Which meant that my classes could get their Banana Pudding in the oven in less than an hour and still have time to enjoy it in the classroom.
