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.

How to Make Banana Pudding

Step-by-Step

  • 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!
