Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

This is a classic recipe for the Vanilla Wafer banana pudding.  We like it with the meringue topping.  The picture is this recipe doubled.  -Kristin

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 t. salt
3 cups milk
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons butter
8 ounce Vanilla Wafers divided
4 very ripe bananas, sliced

Meringue Topping:

3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/4 cup sugar

  • In a saucepan whisk together the sugar, flour and salt.
  • Whisk in the milk
  • Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly.
  • Reduce heat to low; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
  • Remove from heat.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs.
  • Whisk in a small amount of hot mixture into the eggs and then return all to pan whisking constantly.
  • Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and butter.
  • Let it cool at least 15 minutes.
  • In an ungreased 8 inch square baking dish, layer half of the wafers, half of banana slices and half of the pudding.  Repeat layers.
  • To make Meringue topping:  Beat the egg whites with the cream of tarter until soft peaks form. Then add sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.  Put meringue on top of pudding.
  • Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned.
  • Serve warm or cooled.
