1/1 Photo of Osie's "Old-Fashioned" Banana Pudding
This recipe is from my mil, she was such a wonderfully patient lady (especially to let me measure everything for this recipe as she made it!) and is sadly missed. It is the "old-fashioned" way to make banana pudding and does take a while, but the family seems to like it. :) prep & cook time are guesses
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Combine (to make custard) sugar, flour, corn starch, and salt in a pot.
- 2Stir in milk.
- 3Heat over low heat, stirring often to avoid scorching, until thickened.
- 4(beleive me, you will know when this happens!-seems like it takes"forever") Beat egg yolks and gradually stir into the hot sugar mixture.
- 5Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
- 6Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
- 7"Line"a 2 quart casserole dish with a layer of wafers and top with half of the sliced bananas.
- 8(**Iusually have this step finished before I begin to make the custard.**) Pour half of"custard" over bananas.
- 9Repeat, ending with custard on top.
- 10In separate bowl, beat egg whites stiff, but not dry.
- 11(I use the electric mixer on high.) Gradually add 1/4 c sugar and beat until mixture forms stiff peaks.
- 12Pile on top of pudding.
- 13Spread it around to the edges of the dish to"seal" it.
- 14(Then make the top pretty by making designs with the back of the spoon.) Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for about 5 minutes.
- 15(until the egg whites start to turn a golden brown) Watch this close, because sometimes mine turns black-really fast!
- 16Serve warm or chilled.
