Holiday Blog Blitz

it is a southern thing transplanted in the Northwest, a tradition I continued with my own children, who knows if they do it for their kids but they get it when they come to my house. The kids love it fresh and warm, made from the recipe on the back of the Vanilla Wafer box. Below is the original recipe. No box pudding will do it has to be homemade because nothing else tastes as good. Merry Christmas and thanks for joining our Holiday Blog Blitz and enjoy the pudding as much as I do.
Original Nilla Banana Pudding

Ready in: 60 mins.

Layers of Nilla wafers, creamy pudding and fresh banana slices
are the stars of this American classic.

3/4 cup sugar, divided
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Dash salt
3 eggs, separated
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
45 NILLA Wafers, divided
5 ripe bananas, sliced (about 3 1/2 cups), divided
Additional NILLA Wafers and banana slices, for garnish

1. Mix 1/2 cup sugar, flour and salt in top of double boiler.
Blend in 3 egg yolks and milk. Cook, uncovered, over boiling water,
stirring constantly for 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened. Remove
from heat; stir in vanilla.

2. Reserve 10 wafers for garnish. Spread small amount of custard
on bottom of 1 1/2-quart casserole; cover with a layer of wafers
and a layer of sliced bananas. Pour about 1/3 of custard over
bananas. Continue to layer wafers, bananas and custard to make
a total of 3 layers of each, ending with custard.

3. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; gradually add remaining
1/4 cup sugar and beat until stiff but not dry. Spoon on top of
pudding, spreading evenly to cover entire surface and sealing well
to edges.

4. Bake at 350°F in top half of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or
until browned. Cool slightly or refrigerate. Garnish with
additional wafers and banana slices just before serving.

  1. This sounds so good! My granny made it homemade, and since she passed the pudding hasn't been the same. Of course I asked for her recipe and she said a little of this and a little of that, but really the wonderful taste came from all the love granny put into the pudding will ever be as good as hers. So I might as well give this one a try! Thanks!

  2. Oh I love this recipe, but haven't had it in years. My mother ALWAYS made this for every holiday celebration, especially for Christmas. Thank you for sharing. You've inspired me to make it this year. :)

    Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family.


  3. holiday will be safe if I didn't make banana pudding but I cheat and use jello. I add extra vanilla to the pudding tho. Maybe I should try it by hand. I have Memaw's recipe....

  4. I have to make it when Toni comes - and your brother likes it too
