This recipe is Daddy's favorite. (I was going to say one of Daddy's favorites, but who am I kidding?) The "pudding" in this recipe is more of a fluffy custard than the runnier pudding bases you'll see in some banana puddings. It is divine!
Daddy's Favorite Banana Pudding:
1 5.1 oz. box instant vanilla pudding and pie filling mix
1 14 oz. can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1 cup water
16 oz. container Cool Whip
16 oz. carton sour cream
2 12 oz. boxes Nilla wafers
7 large bananas
- Mix pudding and pie filling mix, Eagle brand milk, and water together. Let set for one hour.
- Add Cool Whip and sour cream and mix well.
- In a large, deep sided casserole dish, layer Nilla wafers, bananas (cut into rounds), and Cool Whip mixture. Repeat layers, ending with Cool Whip mixture.
- Refrigerate overnight.
Note: this recipe makes a very large banana pudding, so make sure to use a very large dish to accommodate it. Otherwise, I have been known to split it between two regular sized dishes and you can do the same (one to give away or serve and one to keep all for yourself - but don't tell anyone!).
