Nanner Puddin'

I know.

I know.

I should be making something with nutmeg, or pumpkin, or apples. Nope, not me. Last night it was all about the Banana Puddin'. My friend Dana's birthday is tomorrow, and as an office treat, I made her Banana Pudding (her favorite)

Here's the Recipe:

INGREDIENTS

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups cold milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
4 bananas, sliced
1/2 (12 ounce) package vanilla wafers

DIRECTIONS

- In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in condensed milk, pudding mix, cold milk and vanilla until smooth. Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping.

- Line the bottom of a 9x13 inch dish with vanilla wafers. Arrange sliced bananas evenly over wafers. Spread with pudding mixture. Top with remaining whipped topping. Chill.

Here's What I Got:

Delicious layers of wafers, bananas, puddin' mixture, and to top it off, strawberries!


Here's What I Learned:

- This recipe is FABULOUS.

- It's ok to eat some of the pudding out of the bowl when you are done.

- In fact, you may want to make a slop bucket of extras in your left over cool whip container and chow down. Like this...



Who loves banana pudding?

kiki, since you apparently haven't cooked since september, maybe you should come over soon so we can bake up some delicious holiday goodies. i'm thinking of making some truffles and such to take into daycare and school...would you like to come over and have a mini bake and take???

ok, now i'm really into the idea...you think cassie eubanks and some other girls would want to join (not necessarily at my place, and maybe i could get rid of the boys for a few hours)....what do you think???

OK, banana pudding is one of my all-time favorites! That looks so good! I'd love to have you stop by my Tasty Tuesday with this recipe next week! Thanks for sharing and it's your fault that I'm hungry now and I don't have banana pudding!

Nice blog. I got here by way of Bakerella. I checked out your cake pops and I love that you include "What I learned." That helped me tremendously because I had real problems with the pops. Thanks so much. I'll be back to check out more.
