Banana Pudding Recipe
This nostalgic recipe features vanilla wafers and ripe bananas topped with a fluffy meringue.


  1. Mix ½ cup sugar, flour and salt in the top of a double boiler. Blend in egg yolks and milk. Cook, uncovered, over boiling water until pudding thickens, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in butter until melted; then stir in vanilla.
  2. Set aside 12 wafers for garnish. Spread a small amount of the pudding onto the bottom of a 1.5-quart baking dish. Cover with ⅓ of the remaining wafers, then ⅓ of the banana slices, then ⅓ of the remaining pudding. Repeat layers two more times. To create individual portions, use small serving bowls, following the same process.
  3. Heat oven to 325 degrees.
  4. To make meringue, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly add in remaining sugar. Beat on high speed for 4 minutes until mixture forms stiff peaks. Spread over pudding.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly. Garnish with additional wafers, if desired.
