The Best Banana Pudding Recipe: This Easy Banana Pudding Recipe Is Old-fashioned Southern Sweetness by Donna John
Banana pudding perfection. This recipe can be made in a baking dish, trifle bowl (my favorite way) or even in individual dessert cups. If using a large trifle bowl, buy a 16-ounce container of the Cool Whip so you have plenty for the top.
