Miss Kay’s Banana Pudding

If you watch Duck Dynasty, you know that Miss Kay is a great cook. We tried her banana pudding recipe a while back and it has become a staple for special family occasions. Here’s the recipe. I changed it to skip the double boiler and it works fine, but if you really want the original you can find it here.


  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • ¾ cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 12 oz. can of evaporated milk
  • ¾ cup of milk
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 bag vanilla wafers and crumbled
  • 3-4 bananas, sliced


  1. Slowly melt the butter and then add the sugar, salt, flour, evaporated milk and regular milk. Stir with a whisk.
  2. Temper egg yolks (add some mixture to the eggs to avoid them scrambling.) Add the egg yolks to the mixture, constantly stirring until thick. Add the vanilla extract.
  3. Place the crumbled vanilla wafers and bananas into a 9" x 13" Pyrex dish. Then pour in mixture.
  4. Chill before serving.

Warning, it’s super sweet and it kind of sneaks up on you so don’t eat too much in one sitting or you’ll regret it!
