1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
4 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 box of Nilla Vanilla Wafers (or digestive biscuits in the UK)
4 medium ripe bananas


1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, flour, and salt.

2. Gradually stir in the milk until the mixture is smooth.

3. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens and comes to a boil. Let it boil for one minute, then remove from heat.

4. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks.

5. Slowly add a small amount of the hot milk mixture to the beaten egg yolks, whisking constantly. This helps temper the eggs and prevent them from curdling.
