There is nothing like Old Fashioned, Homemade, Banana Pudding. This recipe is manna from Heaven to a Southerner!
Today I’m thrilled to bring you a recipe video for the first recipe I ever posted on SouthernPlate! The printable recipe is below the video. If you’d like to see my original post from 2008 with step by step photos (and a lot more commentary), please click here.
There is nothing in this world like real homemade banana pudding. I hope you get to wrap your hands around a bowl soon!
- ½ cup sugar or splenda
- ⅓ cup all purpose flour
- 3 egg yolks
- 2 cups milk
- 1 box Vanilla Wafers
- 5 bananas
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- dash salt
- 3 egg whites
- ¼ cup sugar
- Place a layer of Nilla Wafers in the bottom of a medium sized mixing bowl. Slice a banana over the top. Repeat two more times with another layer of wafers and remaining bananas.
- In sauce pot (or double boiler) on medium low heat, add all ingredients except for vanilla. Stir well with wire whisk. Allow to cook, stirring constantly to prevent scorching, until thickened - about fifteen minutes.
- Add in vanilla and stir. Immediately pour over wafers and bananas.
- Whip egg whites until foamy. Add sugar. Continue beating on high speed until soft peaks form. Pour onto top of pudding and spread to edges to seal well. Bake at 325 for ten minutes or until top is golden.
I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.
