Banana Pudding Dessert

Coworker Bonny made this dessert for Christmas. It was really, really good. I loved the meringue topping and the vanilla wafers. Leslie made me the paper weight with Kona's picture, by the way. So cute, yeah!

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Dash salt
3 eggs, separated
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
NILLA Wafers
3 ripe bananas

1. Mix 1 cup sugar, flour and salt. Blend in 3 egg yolks and milk. Cook, uncovered, over boiling water, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla.

2. Reserve 10 wafers for garnish. Spread small amount of custard on bottom of 1 1/2-quart casserole; cover with a layer of wafers and a layer of sliced bananas. Pour about 1/3 of custard over bananas. Continue to layer wafers, bananas ending with custard.

3. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar and beat until stiff but not dry. Spoon on top of pudding, spreading evenly to cover entire surface and sealing well to edges.

4. Bake at 350°F in top half of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned. Cool slightly or refrigerate. Garnish with additional wafers and banana slices just before serving.
