Bananas Foster Bread Pudding

Bananas Foster Bread Pudding created by Jostlori

Bread Pudding is a famous dessert in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This version is from dickiebrennanssteakhouse.com. I haven't made this before and it sure sounds like a lot of bread to fit into that size pan - but they're famous for it and I'm not - so hopefully this works well. :D

  • Slice French bread and dry in a 200F oven for 20 minutes.
  • Combine remaining pudding ingredients in a large container and blend well with a hand mixer.
  • Thinly slice dried French bread and place in an 8 x 10 x 2-inch pan.
  • Pour pudding into pan and mush all bread by hand so that the liquid is absorbed and the bread becomes very soggy.
  • Be sure to flatten all of the lumps.
  • Cover pan with foil and bake at 300 F for 2 ½ hours, or until a skewer inserted in the center of the pudding comes out dry.
  • Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Foster Sauce:

  • Melt butter in a sauce pot.
  • Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well.
  • Add the rum and ignite.
  • Allow the flames to subside.
  • Then, stir in the banana liqueur.
  • Add fresh bananas and simmer over medium heat for about 2 minutes or until the sauce coats the spoon.

    Oh, my! Definitely five stars!!! The bread pudding was delicious, and the sauce amazing! I cut down the pudding recipe to 4 servings, and the sauce to only two servings - which was more than enough to pool lots of sauce on each serving. I used some homemade banana liqueur and I think it makes a big difference, as it has much more flavor than the commercial ones. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT9.
