In all my days, I don’t think I have ever had anything as luscious as this Banana Pudding! The custard is so over the top rich and creamy, I could just take a spoon and devour it. But, when it’s combined with the wafers, the bananas and then topped with a mile high meringue and baked to perfection, it’s enough to swoon over! Where has this been all my life? Yes, that’s right, I have never had a Banana Pudding before and probably never would have except for a friend of time. Bessie Stafford is both a former nursing colleague and a dear friend. In retirement she started cooking and baking again and posted a photo of this pudding on social media. I begged her for the recipe and she graciously shared it with me. Sparky and I both were amazed at how wonderful it tastes. Again, I think it is the custard that puts it over top. Six eggs makes a mighty rich custard! You will need a deep dish pie plate because it makes a lot of custard.
Here’s what we’ll need.
