Southern Banana Pudding Recipe from addapinch.com

This banana pudding recipe is about as much of a comfort food in the south as it is a dessert. One that everyone always looks forward to digging into to get the perfect ratio of vanilla wafers, pudding and bananas.

Grandmother always made hers with a towering meringue on top of the pudding that was light as air and the perfect combination with the rich banana pudding. She would ask my sister and me to help make her banana pudding for dessert so many times when we were young girls. It was a request I don’t remember ever tiring of hearing. She would ask one of us to carefully line the glass bowl with the vanilla wafers while the other sliced the bananas. We each had an important job and the banana pudding just wouldn’t work without both of us completing our tasks with care.

Or at least she always made us believe it wouldn’t.
