Classic Banana Pudding.

A classic dessert recipe for Southern Banana Pudding, a summer staple that the kids will enjoy as a favorite for years to come.

I don’t think I have ever turned down a big scoop of banana pudding and this recipe in particular has my family and me licking our bowls clean. I mean, even if you don’t love bananas, odds are you will still love this dessert. Its rich, creamy and sweet and really everything you could ever ask for in a dessert.

My husband’s aunt makes a wonderful homemade recipe and it’s become a BBQ staple dessert around their parts.

Not only is this pudding absolutely delicious, but it also makes for a beautiful, bright treat to serve during the summer time. We almost always have bananas on hand in our house so it’s nice to be able to pull ingredients I already have without making an extra trip to the store. It’s so easy to whip up for a get-together or to just make with my kids during the summer.

The key to the perfect banana pudding is to find the perfect bananas— golden yellow with a few brown spots. I love topping this off with a dollop of homemade whipped cream and a few extra banana slices for good measure. I also love the mix of textures in banana pudding with a sprinkling or layer of crispy, fresh Nilla Wafers - they just take me back to being young.

Classic Glaze Icing Recipe.

This classic glaze icing recipe is a staple in our home and a simple one you should know how to make along with a handful of other frostings. This powder sugar filled frosting alternative is perfect for cinnamon rolls, pound cake, sugar cookies and more!

You can never go wrong with a good glaze. Be it on doughnuts or a cake, a simple glaze icing adds just the right amount of sweetness to make anyone a “dessert person.” I love when it’s liquid-like but also when it has hardened to a thin, crispy shell to coat.

Glaze icing is honestly the easiest dessert topping to make. It only calls for a few ingredients and just takes a few stirs to get it perfectly. I always remember my mom making this in the mornings to ice her homemade cinnamon rolls, my favorite!
