Banana pudding is one of my favorite Southern desserts and if you’ve never tried it, you may not get what all of the fuss is about. Grown adults going crazy over banana pudding?! The most childish of pudding flavors?! I know – but there’s a reason it was a cult dessert item at Magnolia Bakery in NYC with even the most hardened New Yorkers lined up around the block to order this Southern delight.

Banana pudding is tied with bread pudding in my books for the best Southern dessert, but banana pudding is the winner in terms of ease! If you’re looking for another delicious banana pudding dessert, check out my Banana Pudding Cookie Bars!
