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.

Ingredients

3/4 c
sugar, divided
1/3 c
all purpose flour
dash
salt
3
eggs, separated
2 c
milk
1/2 tsp
vanilla
45
'nilla wafers, divided
5
medium ripe bananas (about 3 1/2 cups)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350F.
2
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.
3
Reserve 12 of the vanilla wafers for garnish. Spread small amount of custard on 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.
4
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.
5
Cool slightly. Insert the 12 remaining wafers along inside edge of cooked pudding. Serve.

Had a look at the terrific cookbooks you made and came to check you out and pinched ya my new friend! Love all original recipe cause living in Greece it's hard to get some ingredients to follow a recipe. All in my family have a sweet tooth so oringinal "sweet" recipes are much appreciated. Alot more for me to make but I'm glad my family enjoys them.
Printed to add to my JAP Dessert folder and of course make soon. Thanks for posting.
