Angel Food Cake with Praline Pudding Sauce

On yesterday's blog I gave you the recipe for Angel Food Cake. Today I am adding the recipes for Banana Praline Sauce and the pudding topping. My family really enjoys this dessert. It tastes a bit like old fashioned banana pudding on angel food cake and you don't get the trans fats from the vanilla wafers.

Brown Sugar Vanilla Pudding

2 cups skim milk
1/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoons butter

In medium saucepan mix all ingredients except vanilla extract and butter. Stir until pudding begins to boil and thicken. If you stop stirring, the pudding will stick to the bottom. After pudding has thickened, remove from heat, stir in vanilla and butter. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Banana Praline Sauce

1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
3 bananas, sliced

Melt butter in saute pan. Add sugar and cooking on medium high heat until the sugar and butter are bubbling, stirring constantly. Stir in whipping cream and remove from heat. Add the vanilla flavoring. Keep warm until served. Before serving, stir in sliced bananas.

Over angel food cake, spoon on Banana Praline Sauce. Top with Brown Sugar Vanilla Pudding.
