This cake is very rich and SO delicious. I recommend that you try it out - I have made some changes to the original recipe found here.
1 box of Nilla Wafers (I use the generic, but you can do what you want)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup milk
Instant Banana Pudding
1 1/2 cups milk
1. Crush the Nilla Wafers. I put them in Ziploc bags and let the kids go to town with the meat hammer and the rolling pin. You can also use your food processor (probably easier that way). The crushed wafers will be your flour.
2. Mix all of the other ingredients with the crushed wafers (don't worry if you have some wafer chunks, everything will soften up with the liquid.)
3. Pour into cake pans (I used 2 - 9" inch pans). You can also do cupcakes - but there are some added steps for that.
4. Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes or until your knife comes out clean.
5. While you are waiting on the cake you can make the pudding, I suggest using a half cup less milk than the package shows to make the filling thicker - more like a custard. Put in the fridge to let it set and let it stay there until the cake is done cooling.
6. Once everything is cool - you can assemble. The entire bowl of pudding should make a good middle layer between the two cakes. After you put on the top layer, frost with vanilla frosting and keep refrigerated until serving.
Have a great 4th of July everyone and enjoy this delicious, summery treat!
