The other night we had a pot luck dinner. The theme was old fashioned home cooking and I was slated to bring dessert.

Typically, I usually bake a cake or put together a trifle to take; however, I wanted to do something a little different.

Banana Pudding came to mind.

Here's my super simple version:

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups cold water
1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding
3 sliced bananas
1 tub Cool Whip
1 box vanilla wafers

In a bowl, stir together condensed milk and water. Beat in pudding mix until smooth.

After the pudding mixture chills and sets for about five minutes, fold in container of Cool Whip.

In a trifle bowl, cover bottom with wafers and row along the side at the bottom. spoon in one layer (1/3 of mixture) of pudding and cover with bananas and another layer of wafers. Spoon in another layer of pudding, followed by bananas and wafers. Spoon in final layer of pudding and top with wafers.

Refrigerate overnight to soften the wafers and serve.
