Thank you to Nicole from Georgia for sharing this delicious recipe!
My Host Family (+ extended Host Family) loves Banana Pudding, so they're all really happy whenever I make it. It's super easy and yummy. You can find the NILLA Wafers at any Walmart (it's a yellow box and most of the boxes have the recipe on them)
Prep: 30 mins - Cook: 15 mins - Cool: 15 mins
3/4 cup sugar, divided
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs, separated
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
45 NILLA Wafers, divided
5 ripe bananas, sliced (about 3 1/2 cups), divided
Additional NILLA Wafers and banana slices, for garnish
1. Mix 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in top of double boiler. Blend in 3 egg yolks and milk. Cook, uncovered, over boiling water, stirring constantly for 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
2. Reserve 10 wafers for garnish. Spread small amount of custard on bottom of 1 1/2-quart casserole; cover with a layer of wafers and a layer of sliced bananas. Pour about 1/3 of custard over bananas. Continue to layer wafers, bananas and custard to make a total of 3 layers of each, ending with custard.
3. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar and beat until stiff but not dry. Spoon on top of pudding, spreading evenly to cover entire surface and sealing well to edges.
4. Bake at 350°F in top half of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned. Cool slightly or refrigerate. Garnish with additional wafers and banana slices just before serving.
Makes 8 servings
P.S. We don't have a big enough double boiler so I just use a normal cooking pot.
Everybody have a great day!
