My grandmother would make this wonderful banana pudding for every family event. Everyone would rave about how wonderful it was and they loved her recipe. As she got older it became difficult for her to stand for long periods of time. This recipe calls for constant stirring during the first portion and she got to the point where this was difficult for her to do. One day in her frustration with the family (they swore up and down that she was the only one who knew this recipe) she stood up and said, “I know you all love this recipe but make it yourself. The recipe is on the back of the box.” She was referring to the Nilla Wafer box. I laughed so hard because she told them where to find the recipe randomly throughout the years leading up to her outburst. Heck, I had been making it in place of her for the whole year prior to this occasion. I am just going to document with photos and leave you with her favorite phase, “It’s on the back of the box!”
The Meringue a.k.a. my favorite part!!!!!
Okay I forgot to make the peaks before baking the pudding but it will still be wonderful!
