This was a last minute addition to our Zaar Week Cookathon/4th of July festivities per my FIL's request. It is the best banana pudding I have ever tasted. So much better than those that use pudding mix. This is the real deal as far as we are concerned. 5-stars from all my guests. My FIL gave it 10 but he really likes banana pudding. Thanks :)

Very, very good. Very easy, too. I used 3 bananas, and wasn't sure on the amount of wafers to use, so I used about half of a 250-gram box. This seems to have worked well. My hubby and I both loved it and I know I will be making this often. I served it unadorned, but I bet the addition of a dab of whipped cream would be the crowning touch. Thanks for posting this "old fashioned" winner!

Simply out of this world. I made this as a surprise for my dad. This is his favorite dessert ever. It turned out even better than my expectations. The pudding was rich and creamy. It was so easy to assemble. I served it warm with some fresh whipped cream. YUMMY STUFF. Thanks Nurse Di.
