THIS IS THE BANANA PUDDING
THAT MY MOM MADE
She got the recipe off the Nabisco Vanilla Wafer box. Mama would usually make banana pudding for Sunday or other special dinners.
PREP TIME: 10 MIN
COOK TIME: 30 MIN
SERVES: 6 to 8
3/4c sugar, divided
1/3c all purpose flour
3 eggs, separated
45 ‘nilla wafers, divided
5 medium ripe bananas (about 3 1/2 cups)
Pre-heat oven to 350F
Mix 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in top of double boiler. Add 3 egg yolks and milk. Cook uncovered, over boiling water 10-12 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
Reserve 12 of the vanilla wafers for garnish. Spread small amount of custard on the bottom of baking dish; cover with layers of 1/3 each of the remaining wafers and sliced bananas and 1/3 of the remaining custard over bananas. Continue to layer wafers, bananas, and custard to make a total of 3 layers each, ending with custard.
Beat egg whites on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually, add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over custard to cover; sealing well to edge. Bake 15-20 minutes until browned.
Cool slightly. Insert the 12 remaining wafers along inside edge of cooked pudding.
