I have several banana pudding type recipes on my website, including one for chocolate banana pudding and even a banana pudding cake, but I do not have a recipe anywhere for traditional banana pudding. Which really came as a surprise to me, especially since I have quite the history with the dessert.
What started out as a pure hatred for this dessert, has really, over the years, turned into quite a delicious and enjoyable dessert for me. The hatred for this dessert really began when I was younger, and I just could not seem to wrap my mind around the fact that people loved eating soft vanilla wafers. Ha! I wanted my vanilla wafers crispy, like they were supposed to be. I would always help my Grandma Barbra make it, prepare it and serve the banana pudding but I would never eat it. Now, in my defense, I did try it and hated it. However, over the course of many years, trying many different foods that opened my mind, and my taste buds, I became a little more open minded on things and decided to try it again. I started, as I always do, with research, followed by experimentation and trying lots and lots of recipes.
