Banana Pudding

Joyce Lowery


This recipe came from my great grandmother's sister. Her granddaughter sent it to me saying it probably came off a cookie package but that it has always been a traditional dish for their family.

Stove Top


1/4 c
plain flour
1 c
2 c
whole milk
2 Tbsp
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 box
vanilla wafer cookies
4 medium
bananas, peeled and sliced


1Butter a 2 quart pyrex dish. layer bananas and vanilla wafers in the buttered dish.
2Combine eggs, sugar, flour, and milk in double boiler. Cook until mixture thickens to coat a spoon (sauce will be thin).
3Remove from the heat. Add butter and vanilla. Cool before pouring over layered bananas and cookies. You can serve it like this or make a meringue and put it over the pudding baking until golden.
4Suggestion from Carol Watson: Add 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter when you add the butter and vanilla.
5My daughter - in - law mashes the bananas instead of slicing. One recipe says to add the mashed bananas to the egg mixture while cooking; then pour over layered bananas and cookies.
6This recipe is very similar to the one that my mother made. She only used the egg yolks in the pudding. When Shannon was about 4 years old, he was staying at my parents. They went to buy groceries and Shannon picked up a piece of paper from the floor and pretended to be reading a grocery list that goes like this: bananas and vanilla wafers to make a banana pudding. He loved banana pudding!
