DIRECTIONS

  • Combine (to make custard) sugar, flour, corn starch, and salt in a pot.
  • Stir in milk.
  • Heat over low heat, stirring often to avoid scorching, until thickened.
  • (beleive me, you will know when this happens!-seems like it takes"forever") Beat egg yolks and gradually stir into the hot sugar mixture.
  • Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • "Line"a 2 quart casserole dish with a layer of wafers and top with half of the sliced bananas.
  • (**Iusually have this step finished before I begin to make the custard.**) Pour half of"custard" over bananas.
  • Repeat, ending with custard on top.
  • In separate bowl, beat egg whites stiff, but not dry.
  • (I use the electric mixer on high.) Gradually add 1/4 c sugar and beat until mixture forms stiff peaks.
  • Pile on top of pudding.
  • Spread it around to the edges of the dish to"seal" it.
  • (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.
  • (until the egg whites start to turn a golden brown) Watch this close, because sometimes mine turns black-really fast!
  • Serve warm or chilled.
