Magnolia Bakery’s Banana Trifle


My oldest daughter lived in Manhattan for years.

We would go to visit her and she took us to all the places she couldn’t afford.

Magnolia Bakery was one of these little shops that you could easily spend a fortune.

We did and she was so happy.

She even bought me their fabulous cook book.

I found this recipe on Pinterest.

It is easy, decadent and delicious.

1 1/2 cups water

2/3 cup of vanilla instant pudding

1 (14-ounce)can sweetened condensed milk

3 cups heavy cream

1 (11 ounce) box of vanilla wafers

4 to 6  sliced bananas

Sprinkle of cinnamon on top

Mix the water, pudding mix and condensed milk  till smooth.

Chill till it is set, at least four hours.

Whip the three cups of whipped cream till it is stiff.

Fold the whipped cream into the pudding

Start layering the trifle with one third box of vanilla wafers,

one third of the banana slices  and one third of the whipped cream mixture.

Continue to do this until everything is finished ending with the cream.

Sprinkle  lightly with the cinnamon

Cover and chill for at least one hour.

I had to give away the leftovers because I would have devoured the entire bowl tonight.
