This old Southern favorite, Banana Pudding, is sure to be a big hit at your house. It takes a little effort preparing this made-from-scratch version but we think it is the best. Some people prefer whipped cream instead of a meringue topping but meringue is the traditional Southern way. Your choice.
My mom, the best Southern cook I've ever known, rarely made this recipe so it was always a special treat when she did. I believe her reluctance to make her fabulous banana pudding was more due to economics (we couldn't afford it) rather than the effort required.
