Banana Foster Bread Pudding
Updated: Jan 4
Having spent the weekend of March 31-April 1 at Hogs for the Cause, I feel the need to post two dessert recipes. I’ll bet you thought It was going to be two pork recipes. Sorry, I have had enough pork for a while.
Melted Butter to grease Baking Dish
1 (12-inch) loaf of French Bread, cut into large cubes
1 quart Heavy Cream
8 Eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup Sugar, plus additional for sprinkling
1 teaspoon Cinnamon, plus additional for sprinkling
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 Banana, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon Dark Rum
1 tablespoon Banana Liqueur
Preheat oven to 325℉. Butter a 2-quart baking dish, and place the bread inside. In a large mixing bowl, mix together heavy cream, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, banana, rum and liqueur. Pour mixture over the bread. Stir until the bread is well-coated. Let stand for 15 minutes. Sprinkle the top lightly with additional cinnamon and sugar mixture and dot with butter. Bake covered for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for 30 minutes more. Serve warm.
