Total Time

Prep: 35 min. + cooling


6-8 servings

Field editor Joanie Ward of Brownsburg, Indiana gives a twist to a traditional comfort food by adding a crunchy meringue-nut topping. It's a dressed-up dessert that's so easy to prepare.


  • 2 cups cold 2% milk
  • 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 medium firm bananas, sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the milk, pudding mixes and sour cream for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until thickened. Fold in bananas. Pour into a 1-1/2-qt. bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  2. For topping, combine the sugar, pecans and egg. Spread into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until browned and crunchy. Cool.
  3. Using a spatula, loosen pecan mixture from pan and break into small pieces. Sprinkle over pudding just before serving.
