URJ Jacobs Camp

Nothing says “Welcome to camp!” like a serving of our homemade banana pudding. This recipe has been a staple at URJ Jacobs Camp, a Reform Jewish summer camp in Utica, MS, since before we can remember. Our campers eagerly await banana pudding on opening night, and they enjoy it again on closing night to send them home with a final sweet taste from summer.

1 #10 can vanilla pudding
3 Cups milk
1 can condensed milk
2 Cups whipped cream
2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
2 Cups sugar
2 boxes Nilla Wafers
12 to 14 bananas
  1. Mix pudding in a bowl.
  2. Add milk, sugar, vanilla, condensed milk, and whipped cream.
  3. Stir together.
  4. Once mixed well, get a bowl or pan. Put the wafers in a pan, place bananas on top of the wafers, then layer with pudding.
  5. Repeat step four until container is full.
  6. Enjoy!
