Remove from the heat; stir in the vanilla. Serve warm sauce over warm pudding. Yield: 6 servings.
Reviews forBanana Bread Pudding
"Excellent, and I made it without the sauce, added some extra banana some golden raisins about 1/2 cup and used evaporated milk with water to make up as I do not have fresh milk on hand. Despite my changes came out very yummy."
"Really good - will make again adding more bananas and maybe white chocolate chips. The sauce was delicious!"
"THE BEST bread pudding!! I added extra bananas! This was my first attempt, but it will definitely not be my last!"
"Very good - especially the sauce. I like that it doesn't take a full stick of butter because I don't like greasy, oily sauces."
"This is the recipe i go to when ever I have a dinner party and I want to impress my guests, you should hear the oows and aaahaws and the many complements I receive. I think the Theking1660 should all have their taste buds examined. I consider this one of my most decadent recopies in my collection! I would give it 10 stars."
"We each took one bite of it before adding sauce and threw it in the garbage. I would keep looking for another recipe, I'm sure there are better ones online."
"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."
"very easy and delicious"
