BANANA SALAD

This is a recipe from the mother of a childhood friend.

1 cup sugar
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tbsp flour
2 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 cup chopped cocktail peanuts
2 medium bananas, sliced and dipped in lemon juice

In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, combine all the above ingredients except marshmallows and cocktail peanuts. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar and peanut butter are melted and ingredients are well blended. Cool. In a glass salad bowl, layer half the banana slices, half the cooked mixture, half the marshmallows, and half the cocktail peanuts. Repeat layers.
