Banana Pudding Recipe

This old fashioned banana pudding recipe is one that I got from my grandmother years ago. It is one of my most requested recipes from friends and family.



  • 1 ½ cups of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups of cold milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla flavoring
  • 3 large bananas
  • 1 package of vanilla wafers


  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract


  • Pudding
  • Mix sugar, flour, eggs, milk and vanilla flavoring in a double boiler over medium heat until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat.
  • Assemble
  • Slice bananas into even pieces. Layer bananas, wafers and pudding until you use all the ingredients ending with pudding.
  • For the Meringue
  • Beat the egg whites until fluffy. Add the sugar and vanilla and beat until mixed.
  • Top with meringue topping and place in an oven set on broil. Broil until the meringue turns golden brown. It will brown very fast so watch it closely. Place in refrigerator for at least an hour before you serve it. Store in refrigerated.
