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!

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

Step-By-Step

1Cook 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.
2Whisk 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.
3Divide 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.)
4Beat 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.
5Bake at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes or until meringue is golden. Let cool on a wire rack 30 minutes.
6For the best flavor, choose firm, ripe bananas with brown speckles.
