Instructions

1. Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a heavy saucepan.

2. Add eggs and egg yolk and whisk until combined.

3. Add milk and whisk until combined, about 30 seconds.

4. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture begins to thicken and bubble around the edges, about 7 minutes.

5. Remove from heat and whisk in butter one piece at a time, allowing each piece to fully incorporate before adding the next.

6. Whisk in vanilla.

7. Cover the surface of the pudding with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

8. Toss the banana slices with the lemon juice in a small bowl and set aside.
