[*]Start by scalding your milk. The best way to do this is by heating it in the microwave for 3-5 minutes. The most important part is to NOT boil the milk but to get it just before that point. You can help to avoid boiling by placing a wooden spoon into the bowl of milk.
[*]In a large pot on medium heat, combine the scalded milk, sugar, flour and salt and whisk together until well combine.
[*]Over medium heat, continue to whisk until the sauce starts to thicken up (8-10 minutes) to create a pudding like texture.
[*]Once it starts to thicken up, reduce your heat and continue to stir for another few minutes (3-4 minutes).
[*]In a separate bowl, whisk your egg yolks and add in a tablespoon of your pudding mixture and stir. This will temper the eggs to avoid any curdling. Add in a few more tablespoons for safe measure.
[*]Once the eggs have tempered, add it into your pudding. Continue over a low heat for a few more minutes (3-4 minutes) then remove from heat.
[*]Stir in your butter, banana flavouring and vanilla and stir until well combined.
[*]Slice your bananas and place on top of your graham cracker pie crust.
[*]Pour the banana pudding over the banana and place in the fridge to chill for a few hours.
[*]Graham Cracker Crust
[*]Mix the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together and press into a pie plate.
[*]Whipped Topping
[*]Whipped the heavy cream, adding the sugar and vanilla once it starts to thicken.
[*]Once whipped and fluffy, place as much as you'd like on top of the chilled pie.
[*]For extra flare, sprinkle on some toasted coconut!
