Banana Pudding Recipes

July 24, 2009

Cup of banana pudding topped with whipped cream and a vanilla wafer cookie.A new twist to Banana Pudding. My family begs for it.



Cook pudding, low heat to prevent scorching, as directed on package.Meanwhile, layer "Nilla" vanilla wafers in bottom of large bowl. Then slice two of the bananas and put on top of wafers. Next cut up 3 slices of pineapple and put on top of bananas. Make another layer of wafers, sliced bananas, and cut up pineapple. Place wafers in a circle around the top of the mixture. Pour the pudding over the mixture slowly so it will seep to the bottom. I sometimes shake the bowl gently so the pudding will go to the bottom. Leave out on counter for approx. 30 minutes so pudding will soak into the wafers. Then refrigerate. Best if made night before using. Great for church socials.

Line the bottom of a large bowl or dish with whole vanilla wafers. Crumble a few wafers and set aside. Lay a layer of banana slices over the layer of wafers. Pour enough pudding over this to create a layer of pudding over top of the wafer and banana layers.


Repeat this process until the bowl or dish is filled. Sprinkle the crumbled wafers over top.

I have been following the recipe on the Nilla waffer box and my pudding doesn't stay creamy once cooled. It becomes thick like a cheese cake. What am I doing wrong?

Not enough ingredients or over mixed could create this affect . Be careful making your next yummy batch!

Well - some people like a thicker, dense pudding but I also prefer 'pudding'.
Here is the original Nabisco recipe and not too many people follow this exactly so take a look and see if it is all the same as your recipe.


Not everyone uses flour anymore and many do not use a double boiler. I still use the original recipe and it works pretty well most of the time.
One trick is knowing exactly when the pudding has thicken just right so it is not 'runny' or too thick. Maybe this is where your problem lies.
Do you use a thermometer? This may be of help.
