Banana Cinnamon Cream Cake

So I know that I'm way behind in posting from Easter. I have no excuse....just been busy and haven't really thought about it. So for the big dinner we really didn't do much out of the ordinary. I made roast chicken and homemade mac n cheese. Chicken was on sale at the store last week and so I went with what was on sale rather than what tradition dictates for Easter dinner (we usually have ham). But I did branch out and made a super yum, banana cream cake. Here is the recipe

Banana Cinnamon Cream Cake
35 nilla wafers, divided
2 C cold milk
1 tub cool whip
2 tbsp melted butter
2 large or 4 medium bananas, sliced
2 pkg vanilla instant pudding
2 tbsp cinnamon (more or less depending on how you like it)

Crush 21 (give or take) wafers and mix with butter. Press crumb mixture onto bottom of round baking dish (9in) Stand remaining wafers vertically around the edge of pan.

Beat the pudding, cinnamon and milk in a large bowl with a whisk for 2 minutes. Stir in whipped topping. Spread half mixture over crust, cover with layers of bananas and remaining pudding mixture. Top with a few extra wafers crushed. refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

I dove into into this like a swimming pool! Soooooo good!! The cinnamon really gives it a great flavor and jazzes up the vanilla pudding! I hope you enjoy!!!

Mmm, it sounds delicious! We don't have nilla wafers, but I bet it would be good with graham crackers...
