Banana Pudding

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 tblsp. all-purpose flour
Dash of salt
1 (13 oz.) can evaporated milk
3/4 cup water
3 eggs, separated
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Vanilla wafers
3 to 4 bananas
2 tblsp. sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt butter in top of a double boiler; stir in brown sugar, flour, and salt. Gradually stir in milk and water; cook until thickened, stirring constantly (about 15 to 20 minutes).

Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored. Stir some of the hot mixture into yolks; add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Cook 2 minutes longer or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cool.

Line bottom and sides of a lightly greased 1 3/4 quart casserole with vanilla wafers. Slice enough bananas to cover bottom layer; top with half of pudding. Layer with vanilla wafers, remaining banana slices, and remaining pudding.

Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until soft peaks form; gradually add 2 tblsp. sugar, and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread over pudding.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until top is brown.

Yield: 8 servings
