That ain’t my grandmother’s banana pudding — BUT it is!
These cute little jelly jars make the perfect containers for this rich banana pudding.
My grandmother always made the best homemade banana pudding and she still could if she wanted to. She just turned 97 in May and is still occasionally cooking up things in her kitchen. Her banana pudding was always from scratch. She would get out all her ingredients, slice her bananas and make a rich, sweet, homemade custard to layer between the bananas and vanilla wafers and then top it with a fluffy meringue and brown it just the right amount in the oven. We could hardly wait for it to be chilled so we could dig into a big bowl of the pudding.
