This rich pudding is good warm or cold.


1 cup flour
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1 quart milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package vanilla wafers
Several (3 or 4) bananas, thinly sliced


In a saucepan, combine flour, egg yolks, sugar, and milk. Mix until smooth. Bring slowly to a boil and cook until thick and the consistency of pudding. Stir in vanilla. In a 2-quart casserole dish, place a layer of vanilla wafers, a layer of thinly sliced bananas, and about half of the pudding. Repeat, working quickly because the heat of the pudding turns this into a cakelike mixture.

Have made something similar

Have made something similar but is not the standard Banana Pudding with meringue. The only thing cooked is the pudding/custard, so only the assembly would be necessary.
