Vanilla Wafer Banana Pudding Recipe



  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 box of vanilla Wafers
  • 4-5 ripe bananas
  • 4 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. In 9x9-inch baking pan, line with a layer of vanilla wafers.
  3. Remove bananas from peels and cut into slices.
  4. Cover and refrigerate banana slices while preparing pudding mixture.
  5. Mix sugar, flour and salt in large bowl. Stir well and set aside.
  6. In a medium-sized saucepan, beat egg yolks well.
  7. Over medium heat, combine flour mixture with egg yolks, alternately with the milk and vanilla extract, stirring constantly.
  8. Bring mixture to boil. Once mixture thickens, add butter or margarine, continuing to stir to prevent burning. Once it reaches pudding consistency, remove from heat and cool.
  9. Place a layer of banana slices in baking pan on top of vanilla wafers.
  10. Pour half of the pudding over the wafers and banana. Place another layer of vanilla wafers and another layer of bananas, and cover with the remaining pudding.
  11. To make meringue, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until they reach soft peaks. Slowly add sugar, cream of tartar, and beat until stiff peaks are formed.
  12. Fold vanilla extract into the meringue and spread meringue over the pudding.
  13. Place in a preheated oven and bake for approximately 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
