The pudding is 3/4 C. sugar, 1/3 c. flour (or 3 T. cornstarch), a pinch of salt. Stir together and add 2 c. milk. Cook over med. heat until mixture begins to thicken. Then temper 3 slightly beaten egg yolks and add to the first mixture. Cook for about 2 minutes more 'til very thick. Remove from heat and add 2 T. butter and 1 tsp. vanilla. In a greased casserole, place a layer of vanilla wafers, a layer of sliced bananas, and about a third of the pudding. Repeat layers 2 more times. I then make a meringue of the 3 egg white, spread on top and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or 'til golden brown. Been making it like this for more than 46 years, and it is yummy!
