Home Made Banana Pudding

IMG_4105Home Made Banana Pudding (Finally!)

My husband has been asking for me to make this for some time now.  Well, I finally found time and not with any time to spare as you can see from the really ripe bananas. 

I do have to admit though, I used the recipe from Nilla Wafers by Nabisco.  The recipe has been around longer than me and I for one, would say it is the best!  It’s quick and easy, but still  homemade, not pudding mix. 

We also do not really care for the meringue topping, so I left it off.  It’s just personal preference I guess!

Original Nilla Banana Pudding

  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • dash salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 45 Nilla Wafers, divided
  • 5 ripe bananas, sliced, divided (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • Additional Nilla Wafers 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 occasionally for 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened.  Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.


2.   Reserve some 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 bananas.  Pour about 1/3 of custard over bananas.  Continue to layer wafers, bananas and custard to make a total of 3 layers, 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 degrees in top half of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned.  Cool slightly or refrigerate.  Garnish with additional wafers just before you serve.
