Homemade  Banana Pudding

Jen Sobjack

This homemade southern banana pudding can be served hot or cold. It contains layers of vanilla pudding, vanilla wafers, sweet ripe bananas, and a meringue topping.

In a medium saucepan, whisk sugar, flour, and salt together. Add the egg yolks and egg and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the milk and the heavy cream.


Cook over medium heat, whisking often, until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla.


Spread a thin layer of the pudding in an 8-inch square pan. Arrange a layer of vanilla wafers on top of the pudding. Arrange a layer of banana slices over the wafers. Spread half of the remaining pudding over the bananas and continue layering wafers, bananas, and pudding.


Top with meringue and bake at 425°F for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned.
