Banana Pudding is one of those homey desserts that stirs memories in lots of us who grew up on the stuff.  Some enjoyed pudding from a box, while others knew nothing but homemade pudding from scratch.

Either way, they both most likely used lots of Nilla Vanilla wafers to give it the customary taste and texture. 

Whatever version you so dearly remember, my recipe for Brandied Banana Pudding probably isn’t anything like it!  As I said, this recipe breaks all the rules.  It doesn’t use boxed pudding, I’ll show you how simple it Is to make your own!
