    CountryLady's Note:

    Toronto pastry chef Anna Olsen includes this in her own Christmas Eve traditions! I like it because its actually a "double duty" recipe ........ I used half the banana bread on its own, then used the other half to make half the bread pudding. You could use your own favourite banana bread recipe - or even a store bought banana bread if you're really pushed for time. I served it warm with frozen vanilla yogurt but I actually preferred it the next day at room temperature.

      We loved this dessert! I made the banana cake a day in advance, it was even more moist the following day! This is very rich so a little goes a long way! thanks for another wonderful recipe Marg...Kitten:)
