Southern Banana Puddin' by Betty Jo (My mama)

This is the real cooked version of southern banana pudding. It’s actually doubled up already because the original version was just never enough. It’s great for breakfast too!

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 8-10

Prep Time: 10 minutes   Cook Time: 15 minutes  


1 cup sugar
4 Tbsp. plain flour
1/2tsp. salt
4 cups milk (canned milk works well)
6 egg yolks (save the whites in separate bowl)
2 tsp. pure vanilla


In a saucepan, put sugar, flour, salt, milk, egg yolks. Stir with wooden spoon over medium heat till boiling. Boil for 2 minutes stirring. Add vanilla and remove from heat.

If you have the time, let it cool down a bit. If you are rushed, set pot in a sink full of cold iced water making SURE the faucet is turned away.

In bowl, cut up bananas and make a layer of bananas, a layer of Nabisco nilla wafers and a layer of the cooled custard. You should get two layers of each. Now for the topping….

Preheat broiler. Beat egg whites till stiff adding 2 Tbsp sugar. Fold onto middle of pudding and spread out to edges. Put under broiler till light brown about 2-5 minutes. Don’t walk away! Chill and enjoy!
