Reviews for Banana Custard Pudding
"To field editor Hazel Fritchie of Palestine, Illinois - how creamy is this pudding? Would it hold up for slicing in a baked pie shell or graham cracker crust? If it's not thick enough, could I use unflavored gelatin to give it some body and not ruin the recipe? Thanks very much!"
