Anyone who has to depend on pudding mix and sweetened condensed milk
should be locked in the freezer. Ugh. I can't make anything with
that disgusting milk stuff.

I agree. It has a very unpleasant odor and taste to me. Not to mention
that the recipe posted was already sweet with the use of the "instant
pudding" mix.
I'd rather have a homemade custard that isn't as sweet and lets the true
banana flavor shine. I don't want to *only* taste "sweet"

You will notice the recipe below includes cream cheese. It tastes sweet,
but not overly sweet. I use this recipe, but I do not include Cool
Whip, and I do not use that many bananas.

Becca

Banana Pudding

* 1 (3.4-ounce) package vanilla pudding, instant or cooked
* 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
* 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip
* 1 to 2 (12-ounce) boxes vanilla wafers
* 6 to 10 bananas, depending on size

Prepare the vanilla pudding according to the directions on the box,
using milk. Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the pudding to the
cream cheese, then the milk and vanilla. Mix well. Fold in the Cool Whip.

Layer the dish alternately with wafers, bananas and pudding; the pudding
layers should be about 1 inch thick. Repeat until you run out of
pudding. Scatter crushed wafers over the top.

Default From-scratch old-fashioned banana pudding (was: Creamy Banana Pudding

I made this a while back, and it was great. No pre-packaged
anything. (Well, except for the vanilla wafers).

It wasn't difficult.

Old Fashioned Bananan Pudding

Pudding

* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 cups milk
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 tablespoon butter
* 4 egg yolks
* 1 box of vanilla Wafers
* 4-5 ripe bananas

Meringue

* 4 egg whites, at room temperature
* 5 tablespoons sugar
* 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375F

Line the bottom of a 9x9-inch baking dish with a layer of
vanilla wafers. (This recipe will not use the whole box, so
you may snack along the way, but don't get carried away.)

Peel the bananas and slice into 3/8-inch rounds. Cover the
banana slices with plastic wrap to keep them from darkening,
and quickly make your pudding.

Combine the sugar, flour and salt in bowl, mix well, and set
aside.

In a heavy saucepan, beat egg yolks well (just use a fork
or a whisk, but beat well). Over medium heat, add the flour
mixture to the egg yolks, alternately, with the milk and
vanilla, stirring constantly.

Bring to a gentle boil and, when mixture begins to thicken,
add butter, continuing to stir to prevent scorching. When
the mixture reaches pudding consistency, remove from heat.

Place a layer of banana slices in the baking dish on top
of the vanilla wafers. Pour, spreading as necessary, half
of the pudding over the wafers and banana slices. Put
down another layer of vanilla wafers and another layer of
bananas, and cover with the remaining pudding.

For the meringue, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer
until they form soft peaks. Add sugar, a tablespoon at a
time, and cream of tartar, and beat until stiff peaks are
formed. Fold the vanilla into the meringue, and spread the
meringue over the pudding.

Place in a preheated 375F oven and bake until browned, 12 to
15 minutes, depending upon your oven.

This recipe won't make what I consider creamy pudding. Any instant
pudding has a grainy texture that is, by any standards, not creamy,
even if it did taste good, which it doesn't.

Yes, Mike, that is a "proper" banana pudding, complete with meringue!!!

This was the way my grandmother and my family always made it. When I was a
wee child, my grandfather, who stood barely 5 feet tall, used to tease me
that the meringue was "calf slobber". :-)

My mother's recipe is similar, with one exception. She did not use all
purpose flour. She always used Softasilk Cake Flour which produces a
noticeably smoother pudding.

Sounds like a keeper, although vanilla wafers and meringue don't
belong in pudding. I'd call this a banana cream pie, not a pudding.
But that's just me. ;-)

Cornstarch works well, too, and has a less "starchy" taste.

A traditional "southern" banana pudding _always_ has vanilla wafers and
meringue. A banana cream pie of any merit has a pastry crust and either
whipped cream or meringue on top. In the South, "that's the law"!
