1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
3 egg yolks (Save whites for meringue)
2 cups whole milk
1 box Nilla Wafers
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1. Place a layer of Nilla Wafers in the bottom of a medium sized bowl. Slice a banana over the top. Repeat two more times with another layer of wafers and remaining bananas.
2. In a sauce pot (or double boiler) on medium low heat, add all ingredients except vanilla. Stir well with a wire whisk. Allow to cook, stirring constantly to prevent scorching, until thickened---about 15 minutes. Add in vanilla and stir. Immediately pour over wafers and bananas
3. Top with meringue, if desired. Beat 3 egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly beat in 1/4 cup sugar and continue beating until firm peaks form. Spread meringue over the top of pudding and to edges of bowl. Brown top in 350 degree oven for 5-8 minutes.
