Old Fashioned Banana Pudding

Thursday, May 17, 2018
Old Fashioned Banana Pudding is the easiest no-bake recipe we love here in the South. Its a picnic or barbecue must have in the summertime. Our family recipe is to use only Nilla Wafers. The rich pudding, bananas, real whipped cream, and vanilla wafers make this a dreamy, creamy dessert that everyone loves. You have two options, one to use store bought pre-made or the one I make from scratch. Check out my childhood favorite no-bake delicious dessert Old Fashioned Banana Pudding recipe below.

Best Every Banana Pudding



I love homemade pudding and this is the best recipe.


It's a must make if you have the time, homemade from scratch is so worth the time.


This creamy confection has the wholesome old-fashioned goodness you may remember from childhood and right into adulthood.


If you haven't tried this dessert homemade you're missing out for sure.


It's a dreamy delicious dessert you will be hooked on after one bite!

I couldn't wait for this dessert to be ready!



Layers of wafers, filled with a rich creamy filling, freshly whipped cream gives this that old fashioned flavor that is etched in my mind from grade school.


I always remember that cream whipping and waiting in line to grab one of the beaters away from my brother.


Oh, course I also was waiting to eat the hot banana pudding when mom said it was done and I would sneak into the kitchen for a sample.


The good ole days.

I am sure someone else out there remembers licking those beaters right?



The anticipation of a seven-year-old child now is priceless to me, I love seeing my grandchildren begging for the beaters now like I did at their age.


Mom always put so much love in everything she made, this pudding dessert was one of them.


It's hard to leave a drop of this banana pudding on the bowl left behind or on the beaters!

Comfort Food At It's Finest



If you haven't tried nilla wafer cookies and banana pudding together, you are missing out on a truly delightful dessert.


No matter what time of the year this was pure comfort food.

Decadent Pudding



The bonus with this kind of creamy dessert is it's an easy no-bake kind.


It 's  always welcome with a big smile when I put this on the table for a family dessert.


It is so easy to make. Even though I wouldn't skip the homemade banana pudding, you can buy pudding pre-made, but it's not the same.


The real experience on this homemade dessert is made from scratch banana pudding.

Big Dessert Here in the South



This is on many restaurant's menus, here in the South.


Mom used to make this often when I was a child.


We never used anything but homemade ingredients.


Everything was from scratch.


Mom even used to take the cream off the top of our milk.


We had our milk delivered back in the 1960s and she would make the cream from it.


Of course, those days are gone, but you can certainly whip up some fresh cream from your local dairy.


This pudding is so smooth and creamy and the whipped cream and nilla wafers have just that perfect bite on your spoon!

Semi Homemade makes this no bake treat.



Using fresh sliced bananas, whipped cream and vanilla wafers makes the pudding decadent and unique to any other you can buy.


It's so easy, I promise!


This really is the best old-fashioned banana pudding I have ever had.


I was never a big fan of banana pudding until I made this nilla wafer pudding recipe.

Old Fashioned Goodness with Old Fashioned Memories



The kids never left a drop in their plates. This dessert was always gobbled up.


This sure was the most asked for dessert I remember.

One spoonful and you'll be hooked.



The whipped cream has that old-fashioned flavor that can't be compared to using a whipped non-dairy topping.


Keep in mind when you do make this it needs to be refrigerated.


During the summer, we would pack this in a cooler on ice.

Classic Recipe



We found this recipe to be not only a family favorite but a great take along to any party or event we had.


If you're not a big fan of bananas, you can certainly get creative and change it up.


I love to use fresh peaches on occasion, with my creamy pudding and still using this method, just for a change.


My family isn't a fan of peaches but I love it!


I usually stick to this classic style recipe.


This old-fashioned banana pudding recipe is truly a big hit no matter what time of the year you make it.






this is a recipe on how to make the best old fashioned homemade banana pudding with nilla wafers, homemade pudding from scratch with whipped cream with tips





Tips




  1. You will need to add a hot liquid to an egg mixture. If you just combine the two mixtures, you'll end up with cooked eggs in your sauce. The goal here is to slowly bring up the temperature of the eggs without scrambling them.
  2. Chill your bowl and beaters first before whipping the cream.
  3. Layer evenly by alternating the pudding, cream and wafers.
