Banana and Custard Parfait

What a very busy day in the kitchen today. We are leaving tomorrow for Craigleith Ontario for another camping trip. I was preparing some meals for our dinners to make it easier on me while camping since it always rains and there’s nothing like prepping and preparing food in the rain. We are very excited to take our kayaks up with us. Were hoping to get some good outings in with some good photographs. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and it doesn’t rain, right like that will happen lol.

On a different note when you was a child did your mother have one of those ingredients that she always had in the cupboard, my mother always had birds custard powder on store. She would use it for some family favorites like apple pie and custard, bananas and custard, and at Christmas time she would use it for making trifle. It wasn’t until recently that I found out that the actual Birds custard powder is vegan there is no milk or eggs in the powder. The  Custard Powder is not actually custard which has been dried into a powder. It’s mostly a starch that has been colored yellow, sweetened and flavored so that when hot milk is added the starch will not only thicken the liquid, as a starch is bound to do anyway, but to give it the right color, taste, and aroma for a custard-like sauce. This made me happy to make a favorite of mine bananas and custard, Yummy!
