Author Notes: My grandmother made this pudding for my Mom and my Mom made it for my brothers and I. It's a very versatile pudding. Slice ripe bananas into a graham cracker crust and pour cooled pudding over the top and you have the best banana cream pie! Add 3-6 Tablespoons of cocoa powder to the sugar and you have chocolate pudding for pudding in a cloud or chocolate pie! I use it to fill eclair shells and when my husband took these to class on Fridays he always got an A in the course. michelle_kuhlman
