“All the single ladies, all the single ladies.” I think we should change Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” lyrics to “All the Southern Ladies” because the Southern Ladies’ Dessert Parade continues. Yesterday there was Miss Susan’s Pineapple Sheet Cake and tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day after that I will bring you more fantastic desserts. As we enter picnic and potluck season, bookmark a few of these for your next event.
This recipe is super easy and quick to throw together. It is sweet, creamy, and very tasty. I don’t often use Cool Whip or boxed pudding mixes but on occasion I think it is fine. Don’t sweat the small stuff, right? And for a potluck, this dish will be the first to go. I promise.
Miss Doris’ Banana Pudding
In a large bowl, mix together until smooth:
3 cups milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 large box instant vanilla pudding
1/2 large container (16 ounce size) Cool Whip
Now you will need:
6 bananas- not too ripe
1 box vanilla wafers- put 3 aside
remaining Cool Whip
In a 9×13 inch dish place a layer of vanilla wafers then a layer of sliced bananas. Top that with 1/2 of the pudding mixture. Make another layer of vanilla wafers and sliced bananas and top with the remaining pudding mixture. Top the pudding mixture with the rest of the Cool Whip and sprinkle 3 crushed vanilla wafers over top the of the entire creation. Chill for at least 2 hours. Serves about 10-12.
While this recipe is super fast, I also like this one…
