Re: Banana Pudding - Southern Recipe

Nabisco began marketing the final piece of the puzzle, vanilla wafers, in about 1901.

No one seems to know who the first person
was who thought of lining the banana pudding dish or layering the pudding with vanilla wafers. However, it caught on quickly, particularly once Nabisco began printing the recipe on their vanilla wafer package.


3/4 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. all purpose flour
Dash of salt
4 eggs, separated, room temp.
2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
35 to 45 wafers
5 to 6 med. size fully ripe bananas, sliced, reserve 1 banana
Nilla wafers for garnish

Combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in top of double boiler.

Stir in 4 egg yolks and milk; blend well.

Cook, uncovered over boiling water, stirring until thickened.

Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add

Spread small amount on bottom of 1 1/2 quart casserole; cover with layer of Nilla wafers.

Top with layer of sliced bananas. Pour about 1/3 of custard over bananas.
