Commonly Asked Questions

Can I substitute the GF lady fingers? The recipe calls for GF (gluten-free) lady fingers, but if you aren’t gluten-intolerant, regular lady fingers should work just as well. The texture and absorption rate might vary slightly, but the outcome will still be delicious.

How long can I store this in the fridge? The Banana Pudding Tiramisu with Caramel is best enjoyed within 2-3 days. Beyond that, the ladyfingers might become a bit too soggy, and the bananas could brown.

Can I freeze it? While you can freeze it, the texture might change upon thawing, especially with the banana slices. It’s best enjoyed fresh from the fridge after setting.

What if I can’t find instant banana pudding? The instant banana pudding adds a specific flavor and texture. If you can’t find it, you could try using vanilla pudding and adding banana extract, but it may alter the flavor slightly.

  1. This looks like my kind of recipe, easy and delicious. I’m the one that loves the flavor of bananas but I don’t want to eat bananas. Solution, use this banana pudding tiramisu recipe. For a family get together I will slice up bananas and “swim” in some white chocolate sauce for those who love sliced bananas. Thanks for sharing this recipe. **

  2. I want to try this recipe. Could I put the sliced bananas on top of the bottom layer instead of on top of the dessert? Or will they turn brown if I do that? I was thinking of serving this dish with a dusting of cocoa powder over the top instead of the bananas and caramel. But I want to still put the caramel between the two layers.

    1. You can, yes. I like to add the bananas right before serving typically. They will change in color the long they are in or on top of the dessert.
