    Could you please tell me how to make this lovely recipe in a 8×8 dish or 9×13 pan? Thanx for your response

  20. Nour says:

    When do you add the heavy cream?

    • Ginny says:

      You beat the heavy cream, 1/4 cup sugar, and splash of vanilla in a mixing bowl for about 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. This is your homemade whipped cream. Place a spoonful of whipped cream on top of banana pudding and top with some crushed vanilla wafers
