2 c. milk (i add half&half into the milk)
1 t. vanilla
box of vanilla wafers
6 ripe bananas, sliced
1. mix sugar, flour and salt in a heavy saucepan. whisk in the eggyolks and milk. cook and stir constantly for 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened. remove from heat; stir in vanilla.
2. spread small amount of custard on bottom of 1 1/2-quart casserole; cover with a layer of wafers and a layer of sliced bananas. pour about 1/3 of custard over bananas. continue to layer wafers, bananas and custard to make a total of 3 layers of each, ending with custard.
