These are the main players to create this ridiculously good, almost illegally good banana pudding.
That's right. Only FIVE ingredients.
After you've had a taste of this, every time after you'll want to just throw everything together as soon as possible, because you can't stand the anticipation. But before you go throwing things together like a mad woman, remember to have the water and condensed milk ready or else the pudding will congeal before you get to mix it!
These are the culprits of the fluffy pudding: vanilla pudding made with condensed milk and whipped cream.
Ah, this clutz of a chef may have walked away for too long before she remembered the whipped cream so the whipped cream you see here is over-whipped. I guess you can use this as a "don't do this" example. Luckily for this recipe, it doesn't matter as much nor does it affect the texture too much.
Meet their love child: on the most wanted list (according to my thighs)
Ok, in retrospect, I should have made this loop endlessly, because if you were kind enough to read everything before this, this might have stopped playing. It's a GIF of my assembly process. Please reload, and forgive your terrible blogger. She will learn, she promises.
Ahh...the final product. The dessert to end all cravings. One dessert to rule them all.
Warning: For some reason, every time I make this recipe, I make more than the specified 9 x 13 baking pan. I usually have enough for two pans. I think my pudding to everything else ratio is off, but just in case you have the same problem as me, buy more than 4 bananas (I used 5), and have more than one box of Nilla wafers on hand (you can snack while you work without worry now ;D ).
