I'm giving this 5 stars for two reasons. First, I chose this particular banana pudding recipe not for the convenience or time involved, but for the ingredients. One of my favorite snacks ever is a sliced baaana mixed with a bit of sour cream, so I thought I would definitely enjoy this, as sour cream was not an ingredient I came across in other recipes. As far as flavor goes, it absolutely did not disappoint. I'm sure the fact I used homemade vanilla wafers helped. The second reason was because I had mixed all the pudding ingredients together when I realized I needed two boxes of pudding, not one, and it was too thin. Unable to get another at the time, and not wanting to waste what I had, I poured the whole thing into a saucepan, added some extra sugar and milk, dissolved some cornstarch in some water, brought the whole mess to a boil while stirring, added in the cornstarch and let it bubble until thickened, threw in a pat of butter and some vanilla and let that chill in the fridge for about 1/2 hour before assembling the pudding. Although the volume of pudding was a lot smaller because the whipped topping lost its whip, and it needs more pudding in ratio for the other ingredients, it still came out tasting wonderful. Any recipe that can be that botched and still come out great deserves 5 stars in my book! I'm looking forward to trying this again as written.
