Use ripe bananas for this recipe, not over ripe ones, turns out better. I have tried it both ways and although the taste is the same, it looks better if the bananas are less ripe.

Preheat oven to 375 (only if you are making meringue). Line a decorative glass-cooking bowl (the size of the bowl depends on how much you want to make this recipe is for 10-12 servings) with vanilla wafers flat side up. Next, cover the wafers with sliced (round slices) bananas. One slice per wafer and repeat until bowl is full. Then mix up the pudding according to the box. Add 2/3 a C. more milk to make it soupy. (Remember to double the milk because you are using two boxes of pudding). Pour mixture over wafers and bananas to coat it good. Then if you would like make the meringue.

6 large eggs

4-5 Tbs. granulated sugar

Separate whites. Beat whites until they begin to form stiff peaks then add sugar and finish beating to stiff peaks. Spread over pudding and bake for 20 min or until golden brown. Carole Libbe

  • I am sticking with the Nabisco Nilla Wafers "Meringue-Topped Southern Banana Pudding" recipe.

    But this sure is a quicker way I suppose, which is good.

  • I don't understand why anyone would fix banana pudding using instant pudding. The real thing is so much better and is so easy. Does take a few more minutes but the little time spent is so worth it. So please use the recipe on the vanilla wafer box and get more raves. Everyone loves my pudding. Sometimes I use meringue and sometimes whipped topping

  • I don''t particularly like meringue but whip cream is a great substitute
