Personal Notes:
This makes a large dish of pudding and, it you like, you can easily half this recipe. I do not use meringue but some people really enjoy it on desserts. Sometimes, I make a little homemade whipped topping to spread on top...just in case it doesn't already have enough sugar.
This has always been my favorite dessert of all times. When I was a child, I never wanted a birthday cake for my birthdays...only a big banana pudding. My mother, Grace Domino, passed away when I was young and so I didn't know till many years later that it was also her favorite dessert. It gives me a good feeling inside to make this for my family.
