Banana Bread Pudding W/ Wheat Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by elfinala

This was a huge hit, even with non-bread-pudding fans. It's almost french-toast-like in flavor and very firm.

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made this with a 1-pound loaf of nutty, whole grain bread & added a cup of dark raisins, but other than that, the recipe was followed, & we had ourselves a very nice bread pudding! Will make this one again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut bread into 1" cubes. Put bread and milk in bowl and set in fridge for 1 hour, stirring occasionally to make sure all bread gets soaked.
  2. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Spray/oil 9x13 glass baking dish.
  3. In separate bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, vanilla, almond flavoring, and cinnamon until frothy.
  4. Remove bread from fridge. Sprinkle with salt and stir. Add egg mixture and stir until well blended.
  5. Fold in bananas, stirring gently until banana is evenly distributed.
  6. Pout into baking dish and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes, or until golden brown and mostly firm (should barely jiggle when moved).
  7. Cool and serve.
