  • Pudding
  • Trifle layers
  • What to do

  • 1. Combine the milk, cornstarch, salt, and sugar in a saucepan over medium–low heat and whisk together until there are no lumps.

  • 2. Whisk in the egg yolk, then heat until bubbling and thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat, and stir in the mashed banana and vanilla. Leave to cool to close to room temperature, stirring occasionally.

  • 3. Layer the ingredients in a glass or jar. Start with the granola, then add the pudding mixture, banana slices and whipped cream (if using). Repeat.

  • 4. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve. Best eaten on the day it is made.

  • Recipe from Homemade Granola by Elise Barber, available from New Holland Publishers.
