Todd's Banana Pudding

Martha Price


In September 1978, a 12-year-old farm boy from Kansas submitted a recipe he had invented to the now defunct magazine, Home Cooking. He stated that he liked to cook, and had made this recipe up for a 4-H demonstration.

I haven't made it yet, but it sounds yummy! It is a great recipe for children to make, even younger children - with supervision. Bananas can easily be sliced with a butter knife for those too young for the sharper knives.

Thanks Todd, where ever you are today!
