Warm Banana Pudding Recipe

I've enjoyed my mother's pudding for as long as I can remember. She and I revised it, using a sugar substitute and reduced-fat ingredients. With its meringue-like top and soft vanilla wafer layer, it's a Southern dessert at its fines.—

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 13, 2010

I must admit I was dubious that a makeover recipe could approach the real thing in taste...I come from a long line of banana puddin' makers. I was pleasantly surprised that this recipe comes close. I will definitely make it again.
