This recipe is really good. I only had sweetened condensed milk so I used that instead of evaporated so it was a little too sweet for me but not for anyone else. I had to make a lot of it, so I also mixed in a pack of instant pudding. Hint: Add a tablespoon of lemon juice to pudding and your bananas won't turn brown.

Didn't work for me. I tried it twice and it stayed a liquid both times, never got thick.

Hubby wanted banana pudding & insisted that it not be instant pudding. I felt that as long as we were cooking the pudding that it might as well be homemade. Thsi was PERFECT! Although because of the reviews complaining of the aftertaste from the evaporated milk (sometimes it bothers me, sometimes it doesn't), I decided to use 2 cups of 2% organic milk & 1 cup of heavy cream instead. It didn't take long for this to thicken at all. I let it cool for about 5 minutes & then layered it into a flared crystal bowl....making sure my bananas were recovered to prevent discoloring. I garnished w/ a pile of whipped cream, two, huge strawberries & a sprig of mint. Loved it...thanks Melody!

"The Very Best Banana Pudding Recipe" I have made. I have to double the recipe for my husband to take to work. As soon as he gets there they start eating it until it is all gone. The cooking is worth the effort. I always soak my bananas in lemon juice so that they want turn brown. Thanks for the recipe....God Bless You!

This is a great banana pudding. Very rich and smooth, just like I remember my Mom making. Hint: Topping the bananas with pudding keeps them from turning.

I did layers of cookie, banana, pudding...repeat. And topped it with some cool whip and crumbled wafers. It was delish, and everyone went back for seconds.

This banana pudding was fantastic, and easy! I ended up stirring the bananas in the pudding after it had cooled rather than putting them on top.
