Banana Pudding Egg Rolls offer a delightful twist on the traditional dessert, combining the creamy sweetness of banana pudding with the crispy texture of an egg roll. Here’s a creative recipe to make these unique treats:

Ingredients:

For the Banana Pudding Filling:

  • 2 ripe bananas, sliced
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vanilla wafer crumbs

For the Egg Rolls:

  • 8-10 egg roll wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten (for sealing the wrappers)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  • Additional vanilla wafer crumbs for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Make the Banana Pudding:
    • In a saucepan, whisk together milk, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Heat over medium, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
    • In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks. Gradually whisk in a portion of the hot milk mixture to temper the yolks.
    • Slowly pour the yolk mixture back into the saucepan, stirring constantly. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
    • Remove from heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla extract until smooth. Fold in the banana slices and vanilla wafer crumbs. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Prepare Egg Roll Wrappers:
    • Lay an egg roll wrapper on a clean surface. Place about 2 tablespoons of the banana pudding mixture towards one corner of the wrapper.
  3. Roll the Egg Rolls:
    • Fold the sides of the wrapper over the filling, then roll tightly, sealing the edge with a little beaten egg. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  4. Fry the Egg Rolls:
    • Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or large skillet to 350°F (175°C).
    • Fry the egg rolls in batches until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
    • Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
  5. Serve:
    • Dust the banana pudding egg rolls with powdered sugar and sprinkle with additional vanilla wafer crumbs.
    • Serve warm for a deliciously unique dessert experience.

Enjoy these Banana Pudding Egg Rolls as a fun and inventive way to transform a classic dessert into a handheld treat! They’re perfect for sharing at gatherings or enjoying as a special snack.
