Below you will find one of our classic recipes with our Vanilla Wafers:

Adelaide’s Famous Original Banana Pudding

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
  • Bud's Best Vanilla Wafers
  • 6 ripe bananas, sliced (thin)

Combine sugar, flour and salt in the top of a double boiler, and stir in milk. Cook over boiling water, stirring until thickened. Beat egg yolks and gradually stir into hot mixture. Return to double boiler; cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; add vanilla. Line a 1-quart casserole with Bud's Best Vanilla Wafers and top with sliced bananas. Pour a portion of custard over the bananas. Repeat, ending with custard on top.

Beat egg whites stiff but not dry. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar and beat until the mixture forms stiff peaks. Pile on top of the pudding. Bake in preheated 425-degree oven for 5 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.

Makes 7 servings.

How to make a Cupcake Train using Bud’s Best Cookies May 12 2015

All aboard the cupcake choo-choo train. Here's what one fan did with our cookies .

Ingredients:

  • Red tablecloth
  • Roll of electrical tape
  • One sleeve of graham crackers
  • One bag of large-sized marshmallows
  • One 5oz. package of Uncle Al’s Chocolate Crèmes
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Toothpicks
  • 12 Cupcakes

Directions:

  1. Fold tablecloth to form a long, narrow track. (Or you can wrap a piece of cardboard in red wrapping paper if you prefer to have a movable base.)
  2. Place electrical tape in two (4-inch) strips parallel to one another. Then cut 8-inch strips and run those horizontally/perpendicular to the created tracks.
  3. Slide marshmallows on ends of toothpick, making two sets of wheel bases. Then place graham crackers on top.
  4. Connect Uncle Al’s Chocolate Crèmes to marshmallows with a dab of icing.
  5. Place cupcakes on top of graham crackers to complete your train.
  6. Add toy train to the front so the cupcakes are being “pulled” by an engine. This fan used her son’s favorite train, Thomas, but you can use any train to complete the look!
