La Vonne's Banana Split Pudding Cake

La Vonne Vincent


It is are deliciously rich layered pudding type desert and because of the crust I would call it a pie but most people refer to it as a dessert pudding. My my family and friends love it for any summer cook out and we are having it for Xmas. It is so rich if you have it more often than 4 times a year you will be gaining some weight.
