12 cups


  • 2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant banana pudding mix

  • 1 quart cold milk

  • 2 bananas, chopped

  • 4 cups heavy cream

  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 1 (12 ounce) package prepared pound cake, cubed

  • ½ (12 ounce) box vanilla wafers (such as Nilla®), crushed


  1. Whisk pudding mix with milk until smooth. Stir in chopped bananas; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, or cream will become lumpy and butter-like.

  3. Layer half the pound cake cubes, half the pudding, half the whipped cream, and half the crushed vanilla wafers in a trifle bowl. Repeat with the remaining cake, pudding, and whipped cream, and top with the remaining crushed wafers. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
