Banana Pudding


For those of us unable to go home for the holidays, food can be one of the simplest ways to bring that taste of home to wherever we are. Accented by the family pie and casserole classics, the season also serves up Banana Pudding on my family's dessert table. Over time, one of my grandmother's sweet specialties began to sit with certainty in our dinner tradition (and I never minded). This year, I added my taste of home to a non-traditional holiday feast among friends bringing what I know as comfort in a simple dish with a few simple steps.

Servings: 8
Prep Time: ~15 min

2 Cups Vanilla Custard (see recipe)
3 Large Bananas, sliced
1/2 Box Vanilla Wafers (~40 wafers)

8 Eggs
1/2 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1/2 Cup Sugar, Granulated
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

In a 9" pie plate, layer the vanilla wafers, sliced bananas and half of the Vanilla Custard. Smooth with a spatula, repeat and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla extract, and slowly add in the sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form and spread over pudding. Bake at 350 degrees until golden at the peaks.

That's all...a pretty easy, festive dessert that brings some nostalgia with its taste. Enjoy!!
