Banana Pudding Recipe via Blog by Donna https://blogbydonna.com

I have an aversion to bananas. Ever since I had to eat several pounds of bananas in one morning to get the scales to go tip 105 pounds when I only weighed 94 pounds. It was crazy and a story for another day.

Even though I do not love bananas, I do love things with bananas as an ingredient… like banana nut bread, banana pudding, banana cream pie. You get the picture.

I love this banana pudding cake recipe, it’s so moist, delicious, and easy! My kind of recipe. Try it out for yourself, I bet you’ll love it… even if you have an aversion to bananas.

    I’ve only really made banana bread before at home. But on the Disney cruise ship they used to serve a banana french toast bread pudding that was to die for, not sure if they still offer that as a dessert or not.

  4. Nikki says:

    That looks really good. I’m big on texture and I don’t like the texture of an actual banana, so I like recipes that taste like banana. I’ll have to give this a shot.
