Banana Pudding

This is a Southern classic dessert.  This tuned out so creamy and delicious with the combination of textures with the pudding, bananas and Nilla wafers...a true taste sensation! 

Our 12 year old son has been begging me to make this ever since he saw the Nilla wafers enter our home.  You can serve this warm or cold, I learned Dylan prefers his cold like he gets at school.  =)

3/4 cup sugar, divided
1/3 cup flour
dash of salt
3 eggs, separated
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
45 Nilla Wafers, divided
4 - 5 bananas, sliced

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in top of a double boiler.  Blend in 3 egg yolks and milk.  Cook, uncovered, over boiling water 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.

Reserve 12 wafers for garnish.  Also, reserve 1/4 cup of sliced bananas that has a little lemon juice mixed with them to keep them from turning brown.  Spread a small amount of custard on bottom of 1-1/2 quart baking dish.  Cover with layers of 1/3 EACH of the remaining wafers, bananas and remaining custard.  Repeat layers at least 2 times.

Beat egg whites on high speed of mixer until soft peaks form.  Gradually beat in remaining sugar until stiff peaks form.  Spread over custard, sealing well to edge of the dish.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cook slightly.  Top with reserved wafers and bananas just before serving
