This is a 45 minute recipe of a fancy looking and delicious Easter dessert dish!


4 eggs

¾ cups of sugar

3 tbsp of flour

½ tsp of salt

2 cups of milk

½ tsp of vanilla extract

30-40 vanilla wafers (digestive cookies also work)

4 overripe bananas



  1. Separate into bowls yolks from white of 3 eggs. Add the remaining one to the bowl with the yolks.
  2. In a pan, mix the flour, ½ cup of sugar and salt. Add egg yolks and milk to mixture, then stir.
  3. Cook (whilst stirring) until reaches a thicker creamy consistency – should take around 10 minutes.
  4. Take away from heated stove and stir in vanilla extract.
  5. Preheat oven to 200 °C.
  6. Slice bananas crosswise into ½ – 1 cm thickness.  
  7. Prepare to put the pudding, bananas and wafers together! Get a medium casserole dish and start by spreading a thin layer of the pudding. After that make a layer of wafers, and then a layers of the banana slices. Do this repeatedly until you use up all these 3 components. It’s best to end with a layer of pudding.
  8. Beat egg whites in a bowl until stiff (a pinch of salt can be added). Add the remaining sugar (around ¼ cup). To check if you have beaten enough, tilt the bowl of white sideways – I ready, the white will not slide. This is the Meringue!
  9. Apply and spread meringue to top of layered dish that has been prepared. Get creative with patterns!
  10. Put in oven for around 5 minutes – until Meringue is lightly brown. [1]
