Old-Fashioned Banana Pudding


Published: Friday, September 10, 2021

4 bananas, peeled and sliced

Vanilla wafers (about 50)

¾ c. sugar

¼ tsp. salt

¼ c. all-purpose flour

4 egg yolks

1 c. regular or 2% milk

1 ½ c. evaporated milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Meringue for pudding:

4 egg whites

½ c. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, slice bananas and sprinkle with lemon juice to keep them from turning black.

In a 2-qt. casserole dish layer the vanilla wafers and bananas, going around the side of the bowl with the wafers.

In a saucepan mix together the sugar, salt, flour, egg yolks, regular milk and evaporated milk. Cook on medium heat, stirring continuously with whisk, about 7-8 minutes until pudding thickens (will burn easily so be sure to stir). Remove from stove and stir in vanilla flavoring. Pour over wafers and bananas.

For meringue: Beat egg whites on high until stiff and peaks form. Add sugar and vanilla and beat into egg whites. Spread over pudding and bake in 350° oven until nicely browned.
