Yummy. Hubby is a Southerner and insisted on this for Thanksgiving. (A tradition so he says but they serve it year round) I've never made it and hubby was determined to be highly critical of any that I made. This recipe did the trick. It wasn't too expensive adding cream cheese and condensed milk like other recipes. It was just simple and cheap to make. It wasn't hard like the ones where you make cooked pudding and meringue either. Easy and hubby gobbled it up with raves.
This is a family tradition...my mother always preferred vanilla pudding instead of the banana cream as it can sometimes have a "fake" taste. This is also good with graham cracker crumbs instead of the vanilla wafers. It's one of those recipes that anyone can make and most everyone loves!! A++++
Awesome, yet easy!! My husband usually makes it the old-fashioned, true southern, messy kitchen way and he LOVED my quick, no-cook way better!! I sprinkled some cinnamon on top to give it some "right-outta-the-oven" color and this addition gave it an extra special kick of flavor!! We will never make banana pudding by the old school rules again!!
