This is another recipe that's been handed down from my great-grandmother and great-aunts. When I make it I have to double the recipe cause there's never enough to go around. It's a little time consuming, but not hard to make.

Prep:

Cook:

15 Min

Ingredients

5 cups milk, whole
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 egg yolks(save whites for meringue)
1 teaspoon vanilla
vanilla wafers or graham crackers
5-6 ripe bananas

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Blend sugar and flour together in a 4 qt. pan.
2
Add milk and whisk with sugar mixture.
3
Cook over medium low heat stirring frequently to prevent sticking or scorching.
4
Beat egg yolks in a 2 cup measure. Add hot milk mixture to the eggs to temper and pour back into pan.
5
Stir constantly until mixture is thick and bubbly. It should coat a spoon.(I prefer a wooden spoon).
6
Add vanilla and stir well.
7
In a 3-4 quart casserole dish layer vanilla wafers, then a layer of sliced bananas. Layer custard on top of this. Repeat layering until custard is the last layer.(It usually takes me 2-3 layers).
8
Prepare meringue using egg whites and about 1/4 cup of additional sugar. When meringue beats into stiff peaks spread over custard.
9
Bake at 375 degrees until meringue is golden about 15 minutes.
10
Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers if there are any.
