I’m back!!! I know, I’ve been slacking. It happens to the best of us 😉 Today I’m going to share with you the way I was taught to make a banana pudding…from scratch. That’s right…no box pudding and no cool whip. It is a variation of the recipe on the Nilla Wafer Box.
Isn’t she pretty?!? Let’s get started. What you’ll need:
|Please ignore the annoying ring around the burner that is impossible to clean haha! Suggestions anyone?!?|
All we have left is the meringue. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer for this. Beat the egg whites starting with a slow speed and working your way up to a higher speed, at the same time slowly adding in the remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Soon you’ll see the egg whites thickening. Once you stop the mixer and see peaks in your bowl, you are good to go!
|See the peaks in the far right picture? That’s what you want!|
|Always show off your peaks! You can make them with the back of your spoon.|
|Check out those peaks 😉|
