Creamy Dreamy Banana Pudding

Tammy Brownlow


This could be your new favorite banana pudding. The first secret are the home made vanilla waffers. I make them the day before. The second secret is the banana flavoring added to the pudding. The double dose of banana flavor will knock any banana lovers socks off.
