I had a hard time with this one. Should I be ‘correct’ and post it here, under ‘B’ or should I use our Southern terminology and post it under ‘N’ for ‘Nanner Puddin’? Either way, you can’t miss with this recipe!
1 C sugar 1 T butter
3 T flour 1 t vanilla
Pinch of salt Whole vanilla wafers
2 C milk 4-5 bananas, sliced
2 eggs, beaten
In heavy saucepan combine sugar, flour and salt. Gradually stir in milk, maintaining a smooth texture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick. Pour half the hot mixture slowly into beaten eggs; return all to saucepan. Cook over slow heat, stirring constantly. After the pudding has thickened, remove it from the heat and add butter and vanilla. Cool. Then layer with wafers and bananas. Sprinkle crumbs over top and refrigerate.
Bonus Recipe – Vanilla Wafers
1 C sugar 1 1/3 C flour
½ C butter, melted 1 t baking powder
1 T vanilla ¼ t salt
In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar and add the egg and vanilla. When it’s well mixed, add the rest of the ingredients to form cookie dough. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet at 175°C (350°F) for 5-8 minutes.
I know. I know… you can buy vanilla wafers in a box at the supermarket to use in this recipe. But, believe me; those things don’t come within a country mile of these wafers. I can’t imagine ever using those things again! Go ahead, give it a try. You know you want to. I recommend making extra wafers so you can munch a few as you’re creating your banana masterpiece. You’ll never use those store-bought horrors again! Leave comments here about the recipe!
