Banana Bread Pudding Recipe

Publisher Photo
When I visited my grandmother in summer, I always looked forward to the comforting pudding she'd make. With its crusty golden top, custard-like inside and smooth vanilla sauce, this bread pudding is a real homespun dessert. Now I make it for my grandchildren. —Mary Detweiler, West Farmington, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2014

"it's very easy to make and really really good, the only thing I did different was let it sit for a couple of hrs. That allows the flavors to meld together and makes it even more yummy. I would definitely make it again."

MY REVIEW

"Oh my word. The smell from my kitchen was awesome. I made a double batch. This recipe is phenomenal. I altered it to use truvia instead of sugar. And I don't normally use nutmeg so I skipped it. We dived in without the sauce. I might or might not make the sauce tomorrow."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 14, 2013

"I used rum extract in place of the vanilla. It smelled so good coming out of the oven that we had it all gone doing "taste tests" before I ever got around to making the sauce. Definately a winner."
