I believe Banana Pudding must be a thing of the south because when we traveled upstate I didn’t see this being offered on any menus. This recipe was my Mom’s and I don’t think I’ve ever tasted anything better.

  • Add flour and stir until blended.
  • Stir in egg yolks.
  • Pour in milk and vanilla; stir until blended.
  • Place on burner at medium heat. Cook until mixture forms thick pudding. (Be sure to stir continually so mixture does not stick to pan and scorch).

  • While beating egg whites with mixer, add sugar and vanilla.
  • Beat meringue until it clings to beater or forms peaks.
  • Spread over pudding mixture and bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
