I really love this dessert because it reminds me of my childhood. My aunt Patsy made a world-renowned Banana Pudding, and she brought it to every family gathering at my Granny’s house. So many fun memories are associated with banana pudding. It should really have its own holiday, don’t you think?
Plus, who doesn’t like to eat out of a jar? There’s something totally fun and unique about scooping out bite after bite! I just love it!
