Banana Pudding

Banana pudding is a southern staple and a classic dessert. There are plenty of variations to be found out there, but we like to keep it simple and stick to the basics (right down to the Nilla wafers). That said, we believe everything tastes better with homemade ingredients, so our version passes on the canned whipped creams and instant puddings and uses nothing but the real deal for authentic bananas and cream flavor.

  1. In a 2-quart saucepan, stir 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, cornstarch and salt until blended.
