Food Friday - Banana Pudding Dessert

You guys.

You HAVE to try this. It is so good and TOO easy (as in, you want to make it all the time, too easy). My friend prepared and served it and while I made some slight modifications, I loved it.

It is a simple way to get that sweet you've been craving or something easy to toss together for company. AND (bonus?), it's cheap to make!

You will need:
  • 2 yellow bananas
  • 1 box yellow cake mix (prepared according to the directions on the package for a 9x13 cake)
  • 2 boxes of instant (we used sugar/fat free) banana pudding (have milk ready for this... but don't make it till the cake is cool. Don't want it to thicken up before the cake cools...)
  • 1 8oz container of Cool Whip
  • 1 box of Nilla Wafers

Bake cake according to directions on the package for a 9"x13" pan.

Once cooled, poke holes in it like you would for BTS cake, slice the bananas, and cover the cake with your banana slices.

Mix up pudding with the milk and before it sets, pour it over the cake/bananas using a rubber spatula to spread it out and cover completely. Top with Cool Whip (again, using the rubber spatula to spread).

When ready to serve, crumble the Nilla Wafers so large chunks remain. (If you add the Nilla Wafers too soon, they can get soggy. If you don't intend to eat the whole thing (which you 'll want to), I would recommend putting the wafers on on a per slice basis.) Serve cold.
