    2 1/2   Cups         Sugar
      1/2   Cup          All-purpose flour
      1/4   Cup          Cornstarch
    7       Cups         Milk
    4                    Egg yolks, beaten
      1/4   Cup          Butter, softened
    1       Teaspoon     Vanilla extract
    1       Pkg.         (12-oz) vanilla wafers
    9                    Med bananas, peeled & sliced
   Combine sugar, flour, and cornstarch in a medium mixing bowl. Mix well,
   and set aside.
   Pour milk into a large saucepan; cook over medium heat until candy
   thermometer registers 160 deg F. Gradually stir one-fourth of hot milk
   into yolks; stir into reserved dry ingredients, and add to remaining hot
   milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and coats the
   spoon. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and vanilla. Let cool to room
   Line bottom of a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with one-third of the vanilla
   wafers. Arrange half of banana slices over wafers; top with half of cooled
   custard. Repeat layers, reserving one-third of wafers to crumble and
   sprinkle over custard. Chill thoroughly. Yield: 20 to 25 servings.

 I often add a layer of well drained crushed pineapple to this and serve with a 
 red something (berry, marischino cherry  etc.) for garnish.
