Baked banana creampie everyone! Yes, you read it right. This is probably one of the best recipes of pudding I have ever tried. It has a lot of flavors so a lot is going on in one bite. I have listed all the steps so there is no reason for you not to give this a try.
Prep: 30 mins | Cook: 15 mins | Total: 45 mins | Servings: 8 | Yield: 1 10-inch pan
- ½ cup white sugar
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 2 cups of milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon banana liqueur
- 1 tablespoon cold butter
For the Pudding:
- 3 medium (7″ to 7-7/8″ long)s very ripe bananas, or more to taste, sliced
- 1 ½ teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 (12 ounces) package miniature vanilla wafers
For the Meringue Topping:
- ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
Step 1: Crack the eggs and separate the whites from the yolks. Place the yolks into a saucepan and the whites in the bowl of a stand mixer.
Step 2: Add in 1/3 cup plus, sugar, 1 tablespoon of flour, and salt into the yolks. Pour in 1/4 cup of the milk and whisk until well blended. Pour in the rest of the milk and continue to whisk until the texture becomes smooth.
Step 3: Place the saucepan on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Whisk and cook until thick.
Step 4: Remove from the heat and add in the banana liqueur, vanilla extract, and cold butter. Whisk until the butter is completely melted then set aside.
Step 5: Prepare the oven and preheat to 200 degrees C.
Step 6: Mix lemon juice with banana slices.
Step 7: Spread a quarter of the custard on the bottom of the baking dish. Arrange 1 layer of vanilla wafers. Cover the wafers with 1/2 of the custard and 1/2 of the bananas. Repeat this method until all the ingredients are arranged in layers.
Step 8: Add in cream of tartar into the egg whites. Beat until foamy and add in sugar. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread the meringue using a spatula on top of the pudding.
Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until the meringue turns color brown.
Step 10: Serve and enjoy!
This is best served warm or chilled.
Bake this in a clear glass dish so you can see it once inside the oven.
