Banana Pudding

Yield 8 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk, scalded
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 60 vanilla wafers
  • 6 bananas, sliced

How to Make It

  1. Combine 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar and flour in top of a double boiler; add milk, and place over boiling water. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Cover, and cook 15 minutes. Add egg yolks; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla.

  2. Arrange half of vanilla wafers in a lightly greased 13- x 9- x 2- inch baking dish; top with half of bananas and half of pudding. Repeat layers.

  3. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar to egg whites, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over top of pudding mixture, sealing to edge of dish. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
