Banana Bread Pudding


How can you make bread pudding even better? Add some sliced bananas and drizzle some warm vanilla sauce all over it! This Banana Bread Pudding was delicious! The top had a nice golden crust and the center was soft and sweet with the perfect banana goodness. I found the recipe in my Taste of Homes Contest Winning Annual Recipes 2006.

The ingredients are:

  • 4 cups cubed day-old French or sourdough bread (1-inch pieces)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sliced firm bananas (1/4-inch pieces)


  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Place the bread cubes in a greased 2-qt. casserole; pour butter over and toss to coat. In a medium bowl, lightly beat eggs; add milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Stir in bananas. Pour over bread cubes and stir to coat. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  2. Meanwhile, for sauce, melt butter in a small saucepan. Combine sugar and cornstarch; add to butter. Stir in milk and corn syrup. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture comes to a full boil. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from the heat; stir in the vanilla. Serve warm sauce over warm pudding

Yield: 6 servings.

  1. When I read the title, I thought the bread in the bread pudding was going to be banana bread (which I bet would make for some tasty pudding, too)–but this sounds fantastic!!
