This Banana Pudding recipe is an easy dessert recipe – it’s creamy and dreamy and just plain perfect.
Banana Pudding. Are there any better two words to go together? I fell in love with a particular banana pudding recipe at a local BBQ joint here in Birmingham, Alabama called Dreamland Barbecue! Ever since I’ve tasted theirs, it’s hard to think that any other banana pudding can live up to it!
I set out to create the recipe on my own and I think I’ve come about as close as I can muster. This banana pudding is pretty famous in my family. Everyone requests that I make it for most of the spring/summer holidays: Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, etc.
Now that I’m pregnant and craving this banana pudding, I want it more than ever! It is SUCH a fabulous cooking treat for the summer.
So, what’s so great about it you ask? It has a nice consistency. It’s not too sweet but just sweet enough. There’s sweetened condensed milk in the banana pudding. And finally? My husband says it tastes a little bit like Bananas Foster. I have passed out this recipe to so many friends and family members so I knew you’d want to have it too!
Normally, I’m a pretty healthy eater but trust me this Banana Pudding is well worth the splurge!
