Magnolia Bakery - Banana Pudding!

On a recent walk in the West Village, Eric's sweet tooth was calling. "Let's walk to Insomnia Cookies in the East Village," he says. "Ehhhhhhhh....but Magnolia is right around the corner!" I suggest. Eric's not a full-blown "cupcake person" as it seems like everyone is these days, but we decide to go and try their banana pudding, which we heard was great.

And boy is it fantastic. Creamy, just-sweet-enough banana pudding with freshly sliced bananas and moist vanilla cake chunks inserted throughout... sweet tooth gone! The "small" serving ($4.50) is quite a bit of puddding and if you're not looking for a big dessert then this is fine to share between 2 or 3 people.

With cupcakes feeling played out these days (and I do enjoy Magnolia's cupcakes more than the other big competitors: Crumbs, Buttermilk, even Baked By Melissa...I guess I'm a frosting gal), the banana pudding is an exciting treat for any occasion, or no occasion at all!
