An Old family favorite !!



My mouth is watering while sitting here letting it sit to cool down,

I never saw a meringue on 'naner puddin, till the service. which brings me to question. Meringue is a dried sugar slurry, A meringue will even draw the moisture out of the air on a humid day. Why do all the meringue topped pies recommend refrigerating after making?
 
That looks great Kevin!

I have about 60 banana trees in my yard & a freezer full of ripe bananas, just begging to be made into pie!

You have inspired me!

Looks great Kevin.  I love banana anything.

I made a lemon pudding and put meringue on top.  After sitting in the fridge overnight, the meringue had turned almost watery where it contacted the pudding.  There was actually liquid floating on the pudding.  It didn't affect the taste, but it sure didn't look real appetizing.  No idea why this happened.

Has everyone noticed that like so many other recipes, "Nilla Wafers" no longer has the banana pudding recipe on the box? Lots of the recipes that made products famous, which had that recipe on the containers, have now disappeared.

We never had meringues on banana pudding. That way it could safely be made and just left on the table. You'd come in the house and smell it and your mouth would start watering. And Mom would start guarding it.....LOL

Thanks

The cold causes any humidity to change more rapidly into a condensate, making the dry sugar like a turbo-charged sponge. Actually those brown drops formed on the meringue is sugar water.

So why would a manufacturer recommend a reefer??
 
Now that's almost too sexy to eat!  Almost...

By the way, banana pudding?  Don't you mean nanner pudn?

I too want to know how you browned the meringue like that.
 
A lightly brown meringue is pretty! Did you use a blowtorch?

Thank you guys, nope just used the oven.

Its so humid today the meringue is covered with droplets. But it still tasted good.  I use 1/4 C of confectioners (powdered) sugar for each egg white. 

No sense me doing a bunch of typing, here's a post strickly about meringues. These are meringue kisses.

Ok, to preserve the recipe for future generations who might search this thread (since it seems to have disappeared from the Nabisco Nilla Wafer box), here it is.  And my recommendation is to eat while still warm from the oven (but it's good refrigerated later too).  If you have not had fresh still warm from cooking Nan'er Puddin', you are missing out.

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.
