    2. In a medium-sized saucepan, bring milk to a boil over medium-high heat.
    3. Remove pan from heat and whisk it with the egg yolk mixture a little at a time.
    4. When the bottom of the bowl is warm, whisk in the remaining hot milk.
    5. Pour the egg yolk and milk mixture into a clean medium-sized saucepan.
    6. Add banana liqueur to the pan and whisk the mixture over a medium-high heat for 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
    7. Keep whisking and cook the pudding for 1-2 more minutes until it becomes glossy and thick. Then transfer the pudding to a clean bowl.
