This is the pudding that my mother used to make when we were growing up. It is so delicious. It has a baked meringue topping which is so wonderful, but if you don't like meringue, you can skip that step and use whipped topping. Personally, I don't think of it as banana pudding without the meringue. But that is just my taste...It's good with topping as well.
