Grandma's Nana Puddin'

My grandma makes the absolute BEST banana puddin' in all of the Triad. Seriously.

If she is going to a cookout at teh Moose Lodge, they ask her to bring a 'nana puddin'. It's what she brings to the family reunion every year and it's the one dish of hers that I seriously could eat until I literally burst open.

I'm pretty sure that there is nothing very different about her recipe or anything like that, but honestly, no one can make puddin' like hers. Maybe it's the way she holds her mouth while she's mixin' the puddin'. I dunno.

At any rate, here's the recipe as she dictated it to me.

2 boxes of instant vanilla pudding
2 cans of sweetened condensed milk
some chilled whole milk
several bananas sliced
1 box of vanilla wafers
1 tub of whipped cream

Pour your pudding mis into a bowl. Pour both cans of sweetened condensed milk into a large measuring cup. See how much that measures. The pudding mix will only tell you how much milk you need, not how much condensed milk you need. So, subtract the amount of condensed milk that you have from the total amount of milk you need for both boxes of mix. The remainder is the amount of whole milk you need. Blend your milk and condensed milk together.

Mix the pudding mix and the milk blend together thoroughly and chill for about 5 minutes.

Line a large bowl with vanilla wafers. Then add a layer of bananas. Top with about half of your pudding. Put another layer of vanilla wafers and banans on the pudding. Top with the remainder of your pudding. Top with bananas and then wafers. Finish off by topping with whipped cream. If you want to dress the pudding a little more, sprinkle the whipped cream with wafer crumbs.

It's the perfect dish for those Sunday evening potlucks.
