This is a recipe that I remember my mom always making when I was a child. I could eat this all day when I was younger, and could probably still do that today.

I also wanted a recipe for cooked pudding--and this was great! I love the warm pudding softening the wafers! I think I threw in an extra banana or 2, and sprinkled wafer crumbs over the top. Kids and hubby loved it!
