I love banana pudding I don’t make it that often because I could eat the whole dish. This dessert can take a little time to prepare but it is so worth it, what could be a better combination that cookies, pudding and bananas.
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
¼ teaspoon salt
3 egg, yolks (save the whites for later)
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 box vanilla wafers
4 to 5 bananas, sliced
3 egg whites
½ teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons sugar
In a medium saucepan; mix together ½ sugar, flour, salt, egg yolks, and milk. Stirring constantly, heat over medium heat until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Line the bottom and the sides of a small baking dish with vanilla wafers; add a layer of sliced bananas and then a layer of custard; repeat layers.
In a large mixing bowl beat egg whites and vanilla on high speed until soft peaks form; gradually add remaining sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until stiff peaks form. Spread over custard, sealing edges of pan.
Bake in a 425⁰F oven for 5 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Can be served warm or chilled.
