  • About This Recipe

    “This is an old one Mum used to make during WW 2. I always knew when Dad was coming home on leave, as Mum would make this pudding and get in the cream, and we would have roast beef for dinner. I used to like this cold too, the bananas go a bit dark when cold, but it was still yummy.Recipe by Edie Nelson (My Mum)”

  • “My 1st Banana Pudding. It was very tasty and quick to make. Its almost like a Pudding Cake, anyway I love it and the small chunks of banana are a bonus :)Would have given 5 stars, but since its my first Banana Pudding attempt ever, I’ll stick to 4.I liked the ambiguous instructions.. 1 1/2 cups of milk it is. :)”
