Here is the real deal…the big flavor of classic Southern-style banana pudding.

This has been a favorite since childhood. I prefer the scratch version as I can’t tolerate the artificial flavorings, coloring, or sweeteners found in boxes and the frozen desert topping. It only takes 15 minutes to whip up a batch from scratch and whip some real cream. It’s worth the 15 minutes to me and my family, the taste is awesome!
