Meet my Friend...Brooke Anna from Mommy Does!!!

Hey Y'all!
My name is Brooke Anna, 
and I blog at the little place called Mommy Does...

(Don't you love my Southern Draawwwl?)
Button
I'm so glad to be over here today, and I'm hoping you will enjoy my company for a bit!
I'm more of a Crafty person, but like to dabble in recipes.
With having two little ones, and a full-time college career
 I can't very well devote a gazillion hours to my hand mixer, pots or pans, can I?

So, today I want to share a QUICK, family friendly, happy tummy maker.
 I have absolutely drooled over this "recipe" since I was a little girl.
What is it you may ask?

{Aunt Nana's Southern Banana Puddin'}
 of course!
Since I was knee-high to a grasshopper
 my Daddy's sister,
 my Aunt
(say it with me... ANT)
 Anna
 {^see the name sake?^}
has made the most delicious banana pudding.
The recipe isn't really a family recipe, but I hope it sticks with our family for years to come.
B's family absolutely loves my Aunt Nana's Southern Banana Puddin'
I know, I know... I'm putting my family heirlooms business all out there right?
Well, when you Guest Post @ Craft Goodies,
you have to BRING IT!

{Items Needed}
-A little more than a half-gallon of Whole Milk or 2%
-1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream
-1 Box Vanilla Wafers
(or two for the perfect cookie-puddin' ratio)
-2 boxes each-
  Regular sized Instant French Vanilla & Banana Creme pudding
-1 Bunch Bananas
(or to taste)
-Large Mixing Bowl
-Serving Pan/Storing Bowl
-Handheld Mixer, or Standing Mixer
-Whisk (optional, haha!)

Since I like to be done with it, I use instant puddings.
Using instant just makes the process easier!
In case you couldn't tell from the picture above...
I buy store brands... :D

Step 1-
Pour all 4 boxes of your pudding mix into a bowl.
Normally the milk/pudding mix ratio is 2 cups per regular sized box... scratch that!
This is "Southern" remember?

Step 2-
Add the entire pint of Heavy Whipping Cream.
Yes, for real! Add it all!
See? that pint gives you a little more than two cups of cream.
Step 3-
Add 5 cups of whole milk.
Step 4-
Mix the pudding mixture until all the lumps and bumps are gone.
Continue mixing until its "wrapping" around the mixer.
Now stop.
I like my pudding to be fluffy and thick,
 but if it is too think I just add about a quarter cup more of milk.
Step 5-
While you let that rest, cut all your bananas you want to use into "wheels."
For the layering...
Step 6-
Place a thin layer of pudding on the bottom of the pan or bowl you are using to serve or store.
Step 7-
Get your Vanilla Wafers and layer on top of the pudding.
Step 8-
For the third layer, spread sliced bananas on top of the cookies.
Repeat Steps 6-8 until all the bananas, cookies, and pudding are gone. 
(I use two boxes of Vanilla Wafers, so I always make sure I have cookies left...)
Step 9-
Just crumble the leftover cookies on top!
And there you have it!
"Aunt Nana's Southern Banana Pudding!"
Step 10-
ENJOY!
It's thick, it's indulgent, it's NOT Guilt Free!
This is great for cook-outs (just keep chilled,) family dinners,
Church or Community Suppers.
Whatever occasion!
I also like making it in food storage containers and giving them to family and friends.


I hope you enjoyed my hap-hazard tutorial, and I'm sorry there aren't more photos!
