This week Amanda has a recipe inspired by traditional banana pudding. The basic batter has lots of crushed vanilla wafers in it, the filling is traditional vanilla pudding and topped with creamy vanilla frosting, banana chips and vanilla wafers- Yum! So now I know what I will be doing with the box of vanilla wafers in my pantry! You can take a look at Amanda’s post here, with step by step instructions and ingredient list.
-Thanks so much Amanda at A Few Shortcuts!
