    I have to confess that I totally forgot the butter, so maybe the butter could take it from 4 to 5 stars. I also got impatient and didn't cook it long enough, so the texture was a bit thin. But it tasted great and my family enjoyed it.  -  09 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe really appealed to me. The only change I made was to add an extra egg yolk; I like my puddings quite thick. It smelled and tasted wonderful when warm, but not so much when cold. It also separated and became runny when cold. But warm and fresh, YUM. I will try it again.  -  06 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had some very ripe bananas and was looking for something to use them in. I decided to double this recipe and then put it in a shortbread pie crust. I omitted the pineapple since it would have not fit into the crust. It was delicious. I loved the orange flavoring in it,;with the coconut and banana flavors, it was very good indeed. It was also something different than our usual pudding flavors.  -  20 Dec 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
