Author Notes: This is the only thing my dad's mother makes well. Sorry, B, it just is. But that means you always have room for Banana Pudding! And it's the best; I know, I know, I've been to Magnolia, I live in New York, but this is better, despite it's bizzarre, almost truck stop ingredients and techniques. A spray of Pam? Right on. She does insist that you use a name brand of vanilla wafers, though, because the store brands get too mushy. So that's a bit classy. —PeachyCallahan
Serves: 6-8, more if you're a good cook and they actually ate their dinner.
instant vanilla pudding
teaspoon vanilla flavoring
butter flavored pan coating
- Blend pudding powder, vanilla flavoring, sugar, pan coating, and milk in a blender til smooth, (a hand mixer is also acceptable).
- Dump vanilla wafers into a bowl. Don't arrange them prettily, just dump. It is seriously better this way.
- Dump banana slices on top of cookies.
- Pour the pudding mixture over the cookies and top with Cool Whip. Refrigerate until serving time. It's really best if made the day ahead.
