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.
