Why I Love This Recipe

My mother had quite a sweet tooth, and banana pudding was one of her favorite desserts. I remember her making this all throughout my childhood. Yummy!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 c. sugar
1/3 c. cornstarch
3/4 t. salt
3 c. whole milk
3 large eggs, separated
11/2 t. vanilla extract
16 large vanilla wafers
3 large ripe bananas


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In the top part of a double boiler, mix 2/3 c. sugar, cornstarch, milk and salt.

Over boiling water, cook, stirring, until thickened.

Cover and cook on low, stirring occasionally.

Add slowly to egg yolks, stirring constantly.

Cook on low for 2 minutes.

Add vanilla.

Arrange alternate layers of wafers, banana slices, and pudding in 1 1/2 quart casserole, ending with pudding.

Beat egg whites until foamy.

Add sugar gradually, beating until stiff.

Arrange egg white mixture on top of pudding.

Bake until lightly golden, about 5 minutes.
