This is an old one Mum used to make during WW 2. I always knew when Dad was coming home on leave, as Mum would make this pudding and get in the cream, and we would have roast beef for dinner. I used to like this cold too, the bananas go a bit dark when cold, but it was still yummy. Recipe by Edie Nelson (My Mum)
- Place butter in a saucepan and melt the butter, add by degrees, the flour, then the milk, and let all boil a few minutes, stirring well.
- Take from the fire and add 2 ozs sugar, the yolks of eggs, and the bananas cut into small pieces, Place all in a pie dish and bake 20 minutes.
- Whisk the egg whites to a stiff froth, add the caster sugar and beat well.
- Place roughly on the pudding and return to the oven for a few minutes until the froth is light brown.
- Serve it swimming in cream.
- (My note :- Mum used to make this in a coal range, I asked how hot was the oven when she got her first electric one? Answer "Oh! about moderate" The 'Meringue' doesn't crisp up) Cheers, Doreen.

My 1st Banana Pudding. It was very tasty and quick to make. Its almost like a Pudding Cake, anyway I love it and the small chunks of banana are a bonus :) Would have given 5 stars, but since its my first Banana Pudding attempt ever, I'll stick to 4. I liked the ambiguous instructions.. 1 1/2 cups of milk it is. :)
The best banana pudding recipe ever! Exactly what I've been looking for! A recipe made with wholesome ingredients. I didn't change a thing. Thanks Doreen!
I wanted a pudding that was economical, easy and with simple everyday ingredients. This met all the criteria and was delicious, too. I used 1 1/2 cups of milk, by the way. (The measurement is messing in the recipe.)
