I didn’t like banana pudding. Most times I had tried it, there was this overwhelming fake banana flavor that I just hated. It reminded me of those banana flavored witches’ brooms that we got in our trick or treating bags as a kid. So gross. I was hosting Life Group at our home and one of the couples brought my least favorite dessert to share. Blech. But, I grew up in a home where I had to taste everything, even if I didn’t like it. So I did and I was shocked! It was delicious! I got the recipe that night and I’ve been making it ever since, to rave reviews. So here’s my recipe for the best banana pudding you’ve ever eaten!
I love this recipe. I found it years ago when someone shared it on Facebook, and no matter how hard I try, I can’t find the original location to give credit! One of the things I love about this recipe is that it contains 6 bananas. That’s a ton! I don’t know about you, but when I have extra bananas, I have quite a few and my regular banana bread only takes 1! So this is a great solution for the over ripe banana problem. Second thing I love about it is that it holds up beautifully to substitutions. I have a Vitamix dry container and use it to grind local wheat and spelt for flour. But when I do that, some things just turn out really dense and wheaty. In this recipe, I cannot tell that I used wheat flour, or raw sugar, or greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It’s just amazing and decadent every time! So without further ado, here is your next party pleaser. Make sure you bring copies of the recipe with you when you take it somewhere because people will be asking!
