Banana Pudding

Sam Jones/Quinn Brein


1 cup flour
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package vanilla wafers
Several (3 or 4) bananas, thinly sliced
whipped cream for topping (optional)


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 or in individual bowls, place a layer of vanilla wafers, a layer of thinly sliced bananas, and about half of the pudding. Repeat, working quickly. Top with whipped cream if desired.


Serves 6 to 8.

Banana Pudding

This is almost the exact recipe I've used all my life EXCEPT I use 1/3 the amount of flour and add a little banana flavoring with the vanilla. I never make a meringue topping simply because I have never learned to like it!


Bananas are "high in Vitamin B6; Potassium; Magnesium + Fiber"~Eggs have Vitamin A + Vitamin D; Calcium~

do u cook it and what temp

do u cook it and what temp for how long do u make a maring with the whites of the eggs u didnt complete the topic

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.
