Mar 13, 2020I'm going to make this tonight but I know it's going to be good. I'm going to use a chocolate caramel pudding. There are a lot of comments about the confusion on the whip topping, I am pretty sure that it's supposed to be a 16 oz tub. That is usually what most recipes I have seen, is called for. I'm going to give it a shot keep my fingers crossed and I'll let you know.
Feb 28, 2020Been making this for years and it’s quick and good! I agree that I’m surprised about weight being confused with ounces, which doesn’t speak well for our educational system! I agree converting ounces to liters is challenging!
Feb 21, 2020Can I use cooked pudding mix? I don't really like the instant puddings.
Aug 25, 2019This recipe was very easy to make. And was wonderful. I definitely will make again!
Jun 16, 2019I’m always looking for easy no bake desserts that I can make in our motorhome. This was so easy and a favorite of our grandkids. We will be making this often.

Excellent banana cream pie. I just wish TofH would stop changing the name of recipes from the names given in its cookbooks, so they would be easier to find on-line for tips and reviews.

Followed the recipe and the taste was as good as the ingredient. The pie did not stand up and was soupie. Not something I would ever serve to guest. What went wrong?

Whipped topping? Old fashioned? That is junk food, garbage. No thanks. That's it for this subscription.
