Going Banana's!

Something warm and yummy on a nice Autumn day. A sweet favorite from Cooking Light

Banana Pudding

Yield
10 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)

Ingredients
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Dash of salt
2 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
1 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
2 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups sliced ripe banana, divided
45 reduced-fat vanilla wafers, divided
4 large egg whites (at room temperature)
1/4 cup sugar

Preparation
Preheat oven to 325°.

Combine flour and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually add milks and yolks; stir well. Cook over medium heat 8 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.

Arrange 1 cup banana slices in bottom of a 2-quart baking dish. Spoon one-third of pudding mixture over banana. Arrange 15 wafers on top of pudding. Repeat layers twice, arranging the last 15 wafers around edge of dish. Push cookies into pudding.

Beat egg whites at high speed of a mixer until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue evenly over pudding, sealing to edge of dish. Bake at 325° for 25 minutes or until golden.

Note: Banana Pudding may be a bit soupy when you first remove it from the oven. Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving.

Enjoy,
Sharon

  1. Oh my it sounds yummy, but the thought of turning the oven on in this heat and all the smoke from the huge fire consumming our So Cal. mountains just gives me an instant hot flash! HA!
    So - I'm printing it out - but saving it for a much cooler day!

  2. My husband LOVES banana pudding, and I've never made it! For shame :)

    I will have to try this, it looks easy.

    Our internet has been down for a week, just now getting back to normal. I'm glad I set up some posts in advance last week. I'll check email and Twitter tonight. Hope things are going well for you, my sweet friend!!
