I botched the recipe on Father's day. I have made this recipe several times. But instead of instant pudding I used regular pudding (the kind you have to cook) without realizing it. I couldn't understand why it was so runny!? So I got to have a re-do this weekend.
Here is the recipe I like to use from a church cookbook. Aren't those the best cookbooks?
This recipe is so light and sooo good! I'm not a fan of a cooked banana pudding with meringue, and this recipe is meringue-free. A couple of things about the recipe: I just use regular Nilla Wafers. I've never seen the cinnamon kind. But a layer of Nutter Butters would be good, too! And I use (2) 8oz. tubs of cool whip, because I am a cool whip addict. One for the filling mixture, and one for the top layer.
I had a little helper in the kitchen this time. This is a great recipe for little ones to help!
There are a couple of reasons I like to make this...one, of course, is because my daddy likes it. But the other reason is that one year my Nana said, 'Judith, I believe I like your recipe better than mine!'. Talk about a proud moment! My Nana...who had made hundreds of batches of her banana pudding...liked mine better than hers? What a compliment!
And oh yeah...the Moose loved it, too. This boy is a banana freak!
