I threw this together as a treat for some last-minute guests. Simple ingredients, divine results! I had to sub some almond milk for part of the milk, and I'd say to be careful with adding extra sugar. I did, and next time I will stick to the recipe to suit my tastes.

I was really excited about this one, but felt it fell short in my opinion. I love bread pudding and thought the addition of banana would be great. Instead, I found that the banana pieces that ended up on the top of the dish got brown, and there wasn't enough flavor. Maybe it needs more vanilla or heavy cream. I did use a mixture of skim milk and some half & half that I wanted to use up, and I skipped the sauce (I never eat sauce on my bread pudding). It is probably better with the sauce, but for me to give bread pudding a top review, it needs to be able to stand on its own.

This was fantastic. I used 1 cup of sugar instead of 1/2 cup as my husband likes it sweeter. It was delicious! We will definitely make this again! Thanks!
