This isn’t really a banana pudding – it’s a silky caramel pudding, with layers of sliced bananas and Nilla Wafers. I could eat the pudding by itself, honestly.
I let my caramel get pretty dark, so the flavor came through really well. I’m not so sure about the Nilla Wafers. They didn’t add much to the mix if you ask me… but I’d like to try this with Biscoff at some point.
I made one small dish of pudding with the meringue (which will start to weep fairly quickly), but packed the rest of it into a plastic storage container for a long weekend in Bend, OR with my dad. It traveled really well, and would make a nice picnic or camping dish (sans meringue).
