This is a 45 minute recipe of a fancy looking and delicious Easter dessert dish!
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
- Separate into bowls yolks from white of 3 eggs. Add the remaining one to the bowl with the yolks.
- In a pan, mix the flour, ½ cup of sugar and salt. Add egg yolks and milk to mixture, then stir.
- Cook (whilst stirring) until reaches a thicker creamy consistency – should take around 10 minutes.
- Take away from heated stove and stir in vanilla extract.
- Preheat oven to 200 °C.
- Slice bananas crosswise into ½ – 1 cm thickness.
- 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.
- 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!
- Apply and spread meringue to top of layered dish that has been prepared. Get creative with patterns!
- Put in oven for around 5 minutes – until Meringue is lightly brown.
