I am feeling a little bit nostalgic of my growing up years so in honor of my Granny Ferguson & my Mamaw Treat I am posting two outstanding recipes for desserts they served often. No counting carbs in those days.
Old Fashioned Banana Pudding (no instant or cook and serve mixes here, please)!
4 Tbsp. flour
2 c. milk
1/2 stick butter (no substitutes!)
1 c. sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Box Nilla wafers
Sift together flour, sugar, and salt. Combine eggs and milk. Whisk egg mixture into flour mixture until completely smooth. Cook in heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick. Add vanilla, butter and bananas. Line a large deep dish with wafers. Pour in half of pudding mixture. Layer with wafers, then add the rest of the pudding. Top with a few crushed wafers. Best when served hot. Refrigerate leftovers. (There won't be many) *You can also serve with homemade whipped cream (no cool whip!) on top after it cools. This is really yummy, as well!
