Easy Banana Rice Pudding with Caramel Sauce

I have some bananas to use up. Like most of you I started to look through my cupboard at what I have on hand that might trigger some ideas for supper.  There was a box of instant vanilla pudding and my stack of bags of rice.  As I have written in the past that I depend on local charity food pantries to get through the month and that is why I have a stack of bags of rice.  Many of my recipes are for low budget cooking.

I planned a stir fry for supper and saved a cup of cooked rice from that to use in the pudding.  While looking for a recipe idea on the internet I saw a banana pudding with caramel sauce.  I had some caramel sauce in the refrigerator left over from ice cream treat. I watch for mark downs for foods that normally not in my budget.  This is what I made.

  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup precooked white rice
  • 3-4 bananas
  • 3/4 cup caramel sauce

Directions:

You will need 6 dessert bowls or custard bowls.

In a mixing bowl beat pudding mix, milk, and cinnamon until thick.  Add cooked rice and stir in.

Warm caramel syrup.   Dribble a small amount of  caramel sauce into the bottom of dessert dishes. Slice a layer of banana next into bowls. Now layer some rice pudding on top.  Layer another few slices of banana on top of pudding.  Dibble a little bit of caramel sauce on bananas.  Top with the rest of pudding and a few slices of bananas.  Spoon the last of the caramel sauce over the pudding.  Chill and serve.

      I started out with Pfaltzgraff dinnerware as a wedding gift 50 years ago. I added to it over the years and bought most of it 30 years ago when no one wanted it anymore second hand.. So I do have some nice pieces from different manufactures that I probably should feature more in my photographs. These are individual casseroles that have lids. I was going to use the custard cups but they seemed a little small for this. Something you should know as a collector is that some of the canisters were sold individually and not in sets. I bought mine new, one at a time, and they are plain. It was the only way I could afford them. They were made by McCoy. So if you see an orphan canister give it a second look. I bought a large, medium and 2 small that have been in my kitchen for the last 45 years. I don’t see much brown drip anymore in the thrift shops not like I used to.

      Thanks for your comment.

      1. Thanks for the information. There is a thrift shop a block from my house that always seems to have a few pieces. There is a rumor going around the owner is going to have a full set up for sale soon. Its supposedly over 200 pieces .

  2. Sounds great! I used to make banana pudding and pour into graham cracker crust for my step son. His favorite dessert growing up.

      I ate some for breakfast today. I didn’t start out to draw an audience. It was a easy way to share recipes to friends on line. As always, thanks for the comment.

    You think like I do. When I plan a meal, my starting point generally is, “What do I have in my refrigerator and cupboards?

      I also do that before I shop. I look at some recipes to use the items and figure out what is needed to make them. Make a list to shop with. Thanks for stopping in.
