How to Make Magnolia Bakery’s Banana Pudding

A couple months ago, in LA, I had Magnolia Bakery’s famous banana pudding for the first time. It was fluffy but creamy and layered with cake-y vanilla wafers and bananas. It was SO good and worth every calorie. Joelle claims the New York City version is way better and I’m waiting for my next trip to NYC to find out! But until then, I actually found the Magnolia Bakery’s Banana Pudding recipe online that I want to share with you! As well as my recipe with a little twist that add a little tanginess to the mix. I’ll let you guys try out both recipes and be the judge on which you like the best!
