Original Nilla Banana Pudding
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
3 large 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
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.
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.
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.
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.
