I have been making this pudding for almost 50 years now. It's a favorite at potluck suppers or family get-togethers. I hope you and your family will enjoy it too.

How to Make Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • 2In top of double boiler, combine: 3 Tbsp. flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 3 egg yolks, 1 egg.
  • 3Add 2 cups milk.
  • 4Cook over boiling water, stirring constantly for about 20 minutes, until custard is the consistency of pudding.
  • 5Remove from heat. Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla, stirring into hot custard.
  • 6In a round 1-quart casserole dish, layer the following: 1/3 custard, 10 vanilla wafers spread evenly, sliced banana spread evenly, 1/3 custard, 10 vanilla wafers, sliced banana, and 1/3 custard. Note: Use two large medium-ripe bananas, not too green.
  • 7Using an electric mixer, beat the 3 egg whites until frothy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar and continue beating until mixture forms soft peaks.
  • 8Spoon the mixture on top of the custard, taking care to spread the mixture all the way to the edges of the dish to keep meringue from shrinking.
  • 9Bake 5 minutes in 425 degree oven until peaks of meringue are golden brown.
  • 10Remove from oven and serve warm or let cool. This may be refrigerated, but bananas may turn dark when chilled.
