I made this recipe on 10/19/10 for the " October is Dessert Month " event over in the " Cooking Photos Forum " .This recipe is exactly what the title says " Easy Banana Pudding ". The only thing that I did different was adding a final layer of cookies over the top. ( That's what my Mom did :) )Will make again. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

After trying to make banana pudding from scratch and failing, I bought some instant pudding and made this recipe. At first it had kind of a tangy (that's not exactly the right word) flavor, but that went away after the ingredients were together for about 24 hours. The next time I make this, I will also use more bananas.
