There are a few tasty little gems in THE REASON IS YOU that I’d be wrong not to share. 😉
First of all, there’s the Hot Banana Pudding that Jason recommends…
BANANA PUDDING CRUMBLE served at Ella’s
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- Dash of salt
- 2 1/2 cups 1% milk
- 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups sliced ripe banana
- vanilla wafers
- graham crackers or graham cracker crust
- 4 egg whites ( I know…2 egg yolks but 4 egg whites… scramble the other two w/some milk & have an omelette)
- 1/4 cup sugar
Combine flour and salt in a medium saucepan. Slowly stir in milks and yolks, then cook over medium heat, stirring constantly for 8 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat, then add vanilla extract.
Arrange some of the vanilla wafers on bottom of 2 quart baking dish, topped with 1 cup banana slices. Spoon 1/3 pudding mixture over bananas; cover with more vanilla wafers. Repeat, then top with a third layer of pudding. Arrange remaining wafers around inside edge of dish and on top; gently push into pudding.
Crumble graham crackers or graham cracker crust generously over the top.
Preheat oven to 325°. Beat egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Add sugar 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves, for 2 to 4 minutes. Spread meringue over pudding. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Let cool for at least 30 minutes.
