Bread Banana Pudding

Posted Sep 13 2008 11:45pm


1 loaf day old Italian or French bread
3 eggs
1 scant cup sugar
1 quart milk or half and half
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla
4 large ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon, divided in half
1 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon fresh, finely grated ginger root
2 tablespoons dark rum or banana liqueur


Put the raisins in the rum or liqueur, and warm briefly in the microwave (20-30 seconds). Allow to sit at least 30 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and mix well.

Cube the loaf of bread, put it in a bowl with the milk and allow to stand for an hour.

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and remaining spices. Mash the bananas and combine all ingredients together.

Turn out into a lightly greased 10X12 or 9X13 inch baking dish and bake at 325 degrees for 70-75 minutes or until edges are golden and toothpick inserted in center comes out nearly clean (same test as for cakes).

Cool and serve with whipped cream.
