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.

How to Make Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

Step-by-Step

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