Banana Pudding

Raven Higheagle


Nothing is more comforting than banana pudding. To the South It is as American as well, Apple Pie. We have had it at every Holiday meal for as long as I can remember. What make Tupelo Honey Cafe's Banana Pudding so different is that it has to be refrigerated overnight before serving. Usually, banana pudding is made in the morning and refrigerated until serving time. Tupelo Honey's Banana Pudding really allows the flavors to meld and the vanilla wafers to soften, it becomes almost like a bananas bread pudding with unbelievable flavor.
