Linda's NOTE: My husband liked this but requested no vanilla wafers the next time I make this banana pudding. He said a graham cracker crust would be better. I'll try it that way. Sounds like a banana cream pie to me! In fact, he said this pudding would make a great Tompouce filling. I agree!!

Yum! That does sound absolutely delish! I bet it would be great with graham crackers, too!

That sounds good, Linda!
At HEMA you get banana cream slices, so such a strange idea is not!
Have a nice week!

With love, Gerry
