      Are you gearing up for a big family gathering or holiday celebration and need a dessert that will impress without causing a fuss? Look no further! We’ve got you covered with a mouthwatering Banana Pudding recipe that serves 50, adapted from a generous serving for 100 courtesy of Don Richardson Woodman of the World Lodge 52.

      Ingredients:

      • 6 pounds of ripe bananas
      • 3 boxes of vanilla wafers
      • 2 large or 3 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
      • 2 large or 3 small boxes of instant banana pudding
      • 1/2 gallon of milk
      • 2 16-ounce containers of Cool Whip

      Instructions:

      2. Assemble the Layers: Line your chosen pan (whether an industrial-sized pan or smaller pans) with a layer of vanilla wafers. Top the wafers with a layer of bananas, sliced thinly to about 1/8 inch. Pour a layer of the prepared pudding mixture over the bananas. Repeat this layering process until all the ingredients are used up, ensuring to end with a layer of pudding on top.
      3. Chill and Serve: Cover the assembled dessert with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. This allows the flavors to meld together and for the pudding to set properly. When ready to serve, dish out generous portions to your eager guests and watch as they delight in every spoonful of this delectable treat!

      Tips-n-Tricks to Keep Bananas from Turning Brown

      To prevent bananas from turning brown when sliced for a dessert, there are a few tricks you can try:

      1. Citrus Juice: Lightly coat the sliced bananas with lemon or lime juice. The citric acid helps slow down the oxidation process that causes browning.
      2. Vinegar Solution: Dip the sliced bananas in a mixture of water and a small amount of vinegar (such as apple cider vinegar). Similar to citrus juice, the acid in vinegar slows down browning.
      3. Ascorbic Acid: Dissolve a small amount of powdered vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in water and soak the banana slices briefly before using them in your dessert. Ascorbic acid acts as an antioxidant, preventing oxidation and browning.
      4. Sprite or 7up– Dipping them in sprite or 7-up for a few seconds also helps to keep them from turning brown.
      5. Plastic Wrap: If you’re not using the bananas immediately, tightly wrap the sliced bananas in plastic wrap, ensuring that there’s minimal air exposure. This helps reduce oxidation and browning.
      6. Keep Them Cold: Store the sliced bananas in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use them. Cold temperatures slow down the enzymatic reactions responsible for browning.

      By employing one or more of these methods, you can keep your sliced bananas looking fresh and appetizing for your dessert presentation.

      I made this recipe at Thanksgiving — but put mine in a graham cracker pie shell. And my DS loved it.
