I wish to honor my precious Mother, Nela Ellen Romine Howell, with another of our family's favorites. Mama went home to be with the Lord on December 10, 2015 at age 97. Her picture is on my Photo page.
Nela's Delicious Southern Style Banana Pudding

1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs, separated
2 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1/3 stick butter
1 teaspoon banana flavoring
About 2/3 box of Vanilla Wafers
3 very ripe bananas, sliced
Combine sugar and flour in double boiler. Stir in milk and slightly beaten egg yolks. Blend well.  Cook, uncovered, over boiling water, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat. Add flavorings and butter. In casserole dish, spread layer of wafers, layer of bananas and layer of pudding. Do another layer of each then spread Meringue.  Bake in 350 degree oven until golden brown.
3 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar

Beat egg whites. Add remaining ingredients and continue to beat until peaks form. Spoon on top of pudding. Spread and seal to edge. 
Tip of the day:
Mama's tip of the day would be..."don't fuss too much with measuring -- just a slight handful of this, a pinch of that and a dash of this will do".
