If you love banana pudding, you will love this! It was easy to make and put together. The individual cups are pretty and fun. They are 1 cup ramekins. You will wow guests with this dessert! I made this for my guests to go with my Easy and Unusual lasagna dinner. I of course had to eat one first for posting purposes. I can tell you it is delicious and it is not real sweet as I thought it might be. Really great dessert! I thought I would share it. I found this recipe on Southern Living's website which listed favorite dessert recipes. *****All of the pictures are My own. Enjoy!

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1/2 c
firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 c
butter
1/4 tsp
ground cinnamon
4
large ripe bananas, sliced
3/4 c
granulated sugar
1/3 c
all-purpose flour
2
large eggs
2 c
milk
4
large eggs, separated (whites & yolks)
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1/4 c
granulated sugar
48
48 vanilla wafers

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook first 3 ingredients in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbly. Add bananas; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat.
2
Whisk together 3/4 cup granulated sugar, next 3 ingredients, and 4 egg yolks in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, 8 to 10 minutes or until a pudding-like thickness. (Mixture will just begin to bubble and will hold soft peaks when whisk is lifted.) Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla.
3
Divide half of banana mixture, pudding, and wafers among 8 (1-cup) ramekins or ovenproof glass dishes. Layer with remaining banana mixture, pudding, and vanilla wafers. ( I put 3 vanilla wafers on the bottom and 2 to 3 on the top sides.)
4
Beat 4 egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Add remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves (2 to 4 minutes). Spread meringue over ramekins. Place ramekins on a baking sheet.
5
Bake at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes or until meringue is golden. Let cool on a wire rack 30 minutes.
6
For the best flavor, choose firm, ripe bananas with brown speckles.
