This is MOST DEFINITELY not classic Southern Banana Pudding. It MUST be made with cooked pudding or custard to allow the banana flavor to infuse. Substitute recipe for the culinarily challenged.
A few people have said this isn't a southern recipe because it calls for instant pudding. However, I grew up in Stone Mountain, GA. Born and raised - and this is exactly how my granny made banana pudding and it's my fave. I knew it was a simple recipe and I've been looking all over for it and there are too many recipes that call for condensed milk or require baking - nope - this is it! The very recipe for banana pudding I grew up on.
No, this is so not southern nanner pudding. Never ever use instant pudding in banana's nasty and tastes fake.
Anyone from the south would know you do not use instant pudding in a real southern banana pudding. Only the cooked custard would be served at a southern table !! I always ask in a restaurant if instant pudding is used and if so I decline to order it. Not good.
I'd have given it 5 stars but I don't make it exactly as the recipe states. I use 1 package banana pudding mix and 1 package cheesecake flavored mix. I also have made it in a pie before and dip the bananas in caramel ice cream topping mixed with rum extract and a 1/2 tsp ground ginger and a dash of cinnamon. People have gone nuts over that pie.
I love this recipe and have been making it for years but instead of vanilla pudding I use banana pudding instead.
I made this yesterday and i love it. My mom felt like it didnt have any taste but everybody else love it. I didnt use the cool whip and I used 4 1/2 cups of milk and it was still pretty thick. I'm not sure why a lot of people said there was runny. I would make again.
Very easy to make and delicious, my whole family enjoyed it.
I loved this recipe although I did make it a little differently and my kids were ecsatic over it. Instead of using 2 packages of the vanilla pudding I used one vanilla and one chocolate. I layered wafers, banana, vanilla and then wafers, banana, and chocolate. Super easy to make, family pleaser=a definite keeper!!
This was fantastic - my family/company loved it!!
