Banana Pecan Bread Pudding

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by MarraMamba

No ordinary bread pudding! Chef Hector Santiago's creation with rum sauce, finished almost like a french toast,and served with ice cream. Try to give it the overnight cooling, then all you need to do is finish it off for serving. Havent made this yet so serving size and times are guestimates
