Banana bread pudding is a great way to change up a traditional bread recipe and give it a new twist. This recipe is done in two parts and really does change the flavor profile of the dish.
First, you need to start off with my banana bread recipe. When you print the final directions, I will include everything you need in one place, but plan to have the following ingredients on hand:
- Flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar – foundation of the recipe
- Seasoning – salt, cinnamon, nutmeg
- Bananas – they need to be mashed for this recipe
- Eggs – Bring them to room temperature before mixing
Once your banana bread has baked, it’s time to make the banana bread pudding – the second part of the process. Alternatively, you could always start with a store-bought loaf to cut down on time.
Banana Bread Pudding Ingredients:
For this portion you will chop up the banana bread you just cooked. Give it some time to cool before handling. Then you will need to grab:
- Walnuts – This nut goes best with this recipe, but feel free to swap it out with one of your favorites
- Milk, eggs, sugar, butter – the foundation of the pudding
- Seasoning – Cinnamon, salt
Banana Bread Pudding Directions:
Step 1 – Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and add bread cubes. (I used a 2.25 qt casserole dish) Sprinkle with walnuts and set aside.
Step 2 – In a mixing bowl, add milk and eggs and whisk well. Sir in sugar, cinnamon, salt, and butter and mix well. Pour over the bread mixture.
Step 3 – Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let set to cool until warm and as an added bonus, serve topped with my Tahitian Vanilla Sauce (omit the macadamia nuts).
This recipe serves 8-10.
