My Grandmother's Banana Pudding
Updated: Dec 8, 2020
Southern Cooked Banana Pudding is the best!!! This dish is truly part of every group party in the south. You can count on someone in the family providing the banana pudding regardless is it the annual Christmas party, birthday celebration, or just because. The traditional version has a meringue topping. Food is amazing because it is so versatile. If you do not like the meringue topping leave it off, add whipped topping, or leave it plain. Either way, this traditional dish is fantastic!! Let's get cooking!!!
5 large eggs
1/2 cup of sugar
3 TBSP flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups of milk
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
2 TBSP butter
1 box of wafers
Mix together sugar, flour, and salt in a saucepan. Add eggs and milk. Cook on medium heat while stirring frequently until the sauce thickens and coats a spoon. Remove from the heat. Slice bananas to the preferred thickness. Layer the pan with crackers, bananas, and pudding sauce.
Meringue Topping: (Optional)
Beat egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Gradually add 3 TBSP sugar, beat until sugar dissolves and stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over pudding and seal to edge of the dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes.
Serve warm or cold - So Good!!!
