The Magnolia Bakery in New York is known very well for their famous banana pudding. They published their recipe, and I was shocked to see how easy it is! This dessert is scrumptious, and can also feed quite a crowd!

How to cook
Gather and portion all ingredients.
Add the sweetened condensed milk and cold water to a stand mixer with whisk attachment, or a medium mixing bowl to use a hand mixer. Whisk until fully combined and creamy.
Whisk in the instant pudding mix to the sweetened condensed milk mixture.
Cover the mixture with plastic wrap, adhering the plastic to the surface of the pudding so it doesn't form a film. Refrigerate for four hours.
Whip the cold heavy cream until stiff peaks are formed.
Bring the pudding mixture out of the refrigerator and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Fold the whipped cream into the pudding.
Slice the bananas into rounds.
Layer vanilla wafers, banana slices, and pudding mixture in individual portions, a 9x9 baking dish, or glass bowl!
Build the layers until you have used up all the pudding.
Finish with a layer of pudding, smoothing the top with a spatula. Decorate with crushed vanilla wafers, whole wafers, or sliced bananas! Ready to serve immediately or keep covered in the fridge.
