  1. Slice 1/2 of 1 banana and sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over it.
  2. Chop the remaining bananas and place in a skillet over medium heat; stir and mash until bananas become heated through, are slightly browned, and hold together in 1 ball, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Mix milk, rice, egg yolks, 3 tablespoons sugar, butter, and salt together in a saucepan over low heat until slightly thickened and steamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in mashed bananas until well blended and heated through. Remove from heat and refrigerate rice pudding until slightly cooled, at least 15 minutes.
  4. Stir whipped cream into rice pudding until well blended.
  5. Heat a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir sugared banana slices until sugar has melted and caramelized, 2 to 4 minutes. Spoon over rice pudding.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I use spray whipped cream. Its easier and takes less time.

I don't understand why so few people tried it, it is just awesome! Did not change anything, added a few drops of vanilla extract (don't know why, I'm always doing this). Tried both hot and cold,...

This is fantastic! We serve it at our B&B and it’s always a hit, even for those that claim not to like rice pudding! Don’t change a thing!

Loved this stuff.. I like mine cold so that how I serve this. I think it tasted wonderful even before adding the cream at the end.. caramelized bananas on top.. yum
