Good Southern Banana Pudding

Ready in 1 hour

My Grandmother was born and raised Southern and insisted there is no other way to make Banana Pudding than from scratch! You won't be disappointed! It was the first thing she taught me to cook. It was every holiday staple and continues to be the same since she's passed years ago.
