Banana Wafer Pudding

Such a boring name for a very tasty dessert. Quick and easy, too - I think it was half an hour from start to finish.

3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp. salt
3 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
250 g box vanilla wafers
2 bananas, sliced
3 egg whites, room temperature
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 cup granulated sugar

In top of double boiler*, mix sugar, flour and salt. Stir in egg yolks, milk and vanilla. Cook, stirring often, until thickened and coats a metal spoon.

Layer wafers with bananas and pudding in an 8-inch casserole.

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Add sugar gradually, beating until stiff. Spread over top. Bake in 400°F oven for about 4 or 5 minutes until golden brown. Serve cold. Makes 6 servings.

*I don't have a double boiler, so I used a stainless steel mixing bowl over a saucepan.
