Old Fashioned Banana Pudding
Family Tested & Approved
4 egg yolks(save whites for meringue)
vanilla wafers or graham crackers
Blend sugar and flour together in a 4 qt. pan.
Add milk and whisk with sugar mixture.
Cook over medium low heat stirring frequently to prevent sticking or scorching.
Beat egg yolks in a 2 cup measure. Add hot milk mixture to the eggs to temper and pour back into pan.
Stir constantly until mixture is thick and bubbly. It should coat a spoon.(I prefer a wooden spoon).
Add vanilla and stir well.
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).
Prepare meringue using egg whites and about 1/4 cup of additional sugar. When meringue beats into stiff peaks spread over custard.
Bake at 375 degrees until meringue is golden about 15 minutes.
Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers if there are any.
