    Most banana puddings use instant pudding, which is just not as good - and it's not really any easier. This recipe is more like my mom's, except she doesn't use salt or butter. One thing we found out is that if you use bananas that are just barely ripe, it all tastes so much better the next day. IF it lasts that long!

    That is the way I make my banana pudding, it is so much better than with the instant pudding that most people use nowadays.
