Banana Pudding with Meringue Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 4)

Helpful hint: Although it will seem like the recipe doesn't yield enough filling to coat the bananas and wafers, it's actually the perfect amount. Because the filling is warm when you pour it over the wafers/bananas and then it's further heated in the oven, if you double the filling it will be TOO MUCH hot liquid and your wafers and bananas will melt into a mush (I learned the hard way). As the recipe stands, the bananas still have some bite. Hope this helps! Thanks, Laura M.

The flavor of this banana pudding recipe is almost perfect, but it's WAY too sweet. The pudding recipe also didn't yield enough pudding to totally coat all the layers of cookies and banana. Next time I make this recipe I will double the pudding recipe without increasing the sugar, because there just wasn't enough of the pudding to make the whole pan delicious and gooey! There was also much too much sugar in the meringue; 1 Tablespoon would have been plenty. If not for the excessive sweetness, this recipe would be exactly like the banana pudding my mom used to make.

Being from the deep South I grew up with this recipe. My mother used to make it for church socials and family reunions. Except she used all white sugar. It is still the only way I make banana pudding. My family loves it. I also would suggest doubling the recipe as it does go really fast.

I made this for my North Carolina native in-laws since banana pudding is my father-in-law's all-time favorite deserts. He really dislikes instant pudding so this was the recipie I needed to try. He loved it!! It was a bit of work to make but they all said it was well worth it. I made it the night before and let it sit in the fridge over night to that the wafers would soften. I definitely recommend doubling the recipe at least since it will all disappear quickly! I will definitely make this again.

I also grew up on this recipe, exact to every detail. It is the only way I had ever had banana pudding and was never ever to replicate it on my own. Thank goodness for this recipe! It took me back to the comforts of my childhood. My family didn't care for the meringue, but for me it was heavenly!

Delicious dessert! I didn't have vanilla wafers and used graham crackers instead. Also, my daughter was helping me and told me 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar instead of 3 1/2 for the meringue . . . it turned out just fine :-) It wasn't hard but difficult to let the kids help with the heat and eggs. It made me remember my grandmother's lemon meringue pie . . .
