Ready in: 60 mins.
 
Layers of Nilla wafers, creamy pudding and fresh banana slices
are the stars of this American classic.
 
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • Dash salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 45 NILLA Wafers, divided
  • 5 ripe bananas, sliced (about 3 1/2 cups), divided
  • Additional NILLA Wafers and banana slices, for garnish

 

 
1. Mix 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in top of double boiler.
Blend in 3 egg yolks and milk. Cook, uncovered, over boiling water,
stirring constantly for 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened. Remove
from heat; stir in vanilla.
 
2. Reserve 10 wafers for garnish. Spread small amount of custard
on bottom of 1 1/2-quart casserole; cover with a layer of wafers
and a layer of sliced bananas. Pour about 1/3 of custard over
bananas. Continue to layer wafers, bananas and custard to make
a total of 3 layers of each, ending with custard.
 
3. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; gradually add remaining
1/4 cup sugar and beat until stiff but not dry. Spoon on top of
pudding, spreading evenly to cover entire surface and sealing well
to edges.
 
4. Bake at 350°F in top half of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or
until browned. Cool slightly or refrigerate. Garnish with
additional wafers and banana slices just before serving.
