World Famous Banana Pudding from Magnolia Bakery!
When one is told that the recipe is "World Famous" and that you have to try it, how can you argue? That is what happened when my SIL said he was making this amazing banana pudding. The two of us do enjoy cooking together so why wouldn't I make it also. We can compare notes long-distance it is just 1,000 miles!
All I knew about banana pudding was that my mom would make it and we had Vanilla Wafers with it. Maybe she was a trend setter and didn't know it! What I do know is that this was a super tasty pudding and it makes a lot...there are only two of us...we needed at least six more people...but there is a pandemic so why not pig out on banana pudding!
The recipe comes from the Magnolia Bakery in New York City. It has become a pop-culture phenomenon according to the Today Show. It has "the" spot for sweets in "Sex in the City" and has been seen in other popular TV shows and movies.
Definitely a make again dessert! It truly brought back memories of my mom's creation. I know this recipe is a little different from what she did but I will always remember the banana pudding and wafers!
