The Talk: Kim Wayans Banana Pudding Recipe Ingredients
Kim said she is the cook of the Wayans family, and she shared her Wayans-Style Banana Pudding Recipe with the co-hosts. She learned it from her mother when she was little, and it is a dessert staple for them at special occasions and holidays.
She stressed that ripe bananas are the key to making sure the end product comes out sweet. “Most people don’t bake theirs. They just have it cold. But that’s not the way we roll,” Kim said.
