We all love a classic pudding. Every bite is nostalgic and reminds us of our good old childhood. This Southern Banana Pudding is so rich and sweet but it’s super good we don’t mind the calories! I am a food enthusiast, I eat what I love, and what makes me happy even if it means added weight. And this pudding makes its way straight into my heart with its creamy texture and fluffy-and-toasty meringue. You got the flavors, you got the aroma, and you got the texture in a breeze that just cracks in your mouth!

3 eggs, separated
2 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 box vanilla wafers
