Years ago I found an awesome Banana Pudding recipe that was the best that any of us had ever tasted. Everyone we gave some to said it was the best. But, in the 3 moves we’ve made since then I’ve lost the recipe. I’ve looked for it everywhere, even online, but haven’t found it again. The other day my son wanted me to make some with store bought pudding that you have to cook. We all liked it, but not as much as my long lost pudding. My husband asked if I had any instant pudding so that we could compare the two and see which one was better. I said “yea, I have 2 boxes of vanilla pudding, I’ll go make it”. So I go get all the ingredients and discover that my vanilla pudding isn’t vanilla, it’s cheesecake. Yep! I decided to make it anyway, you never know, it could be really good. So I made some. I’m sure there’s lots of people out there that have made BP with cheesecake pudding before, I’ve just never seen it before.
2 boxes Jell-O Cheesecake instant pudding
1 1/2 boxes Nabisco Nilla Wafers (I had 1/2 box left from the other pudding, but forgot to put it in the photo)
Bananas (I usually don’t let them get this brown, but they were still ok)
4 cups milk
Place some of the wafers to cover a cake pan
Mix the pudding and milk together with a whisk for 2 minutes
Pour a layer of pudding over wafers
Sorry, forgot to take a photo of the layer of bananas
Keep layering until out of pudding
Top with remaining wafers, some whole, some crumbled
So what did we think? It was sooo good. The only thing I’ll change next time is to use less bananas. I think I used 4 large, next time I’ll use 3, or maybe 4 medium.
