DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine sugar & cornstarch (use 1/8 cup cornstarch for thinner pudding or 1/4 cup for thicker pudding) with a whisk or by sifting together. Whisk in milk. Add butter & microwave for 2 minutes. Whisk.
  • Beat egg yolks with whisk. Add 1/4 cup of hot milk mixture to egg yolks to temper, then add egg yolk mixture to milk mixture. Whisk well, and microwave for 2 minutes. Whisk, & repeat until mixture is thickened. Whisk in vanilla flavoring.
  • Layer 1/3 to 1/2 of the vanilla wafers in the bottom of a 3 quart bowl. Slice 3 bananas on top of the wafers. Repeat the layers.
  • Pour the thickened pudding mixture over the last layer of bananas.
  • For the meringue, beat the egg whites & cream of tartar on high until soft peaks form. Slowly beat in the sugar. Beat on high until stiff peaks form (mixture stays on beater when lifted out of bowl).
  • Spread the meringue on top of the pudding mixture. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until brown. Remove from oven & let cool. Refrigerate.
