My Famous Bananas Foster Bread Pudding

Today I am sharing my famous Bananas Foster Bread Pudding a family favorite for the holidays!


My Famous Bananas Foster Bread Pudding is one of my recipes I get asked about all the time, because it is so simple and tasty. It is one of my husband favorites since he loves anything not chocolate and it is perfect for the holidays as well, so give it try!Serving Bananas Foster Bread Pudding JENRON DESIGNSI have even converted this recipe and created a version of it for my Instant Pot as well, which I published over at Home Pressure Cooking as a guest author, so if you are a fan of pressure cooking you can check out my plethora of recipes over there too. This, however, is the original version of this recipe, which is meant to be done the traditional southern way, in the oven, but trust me it’s still just as simple!Bananas Foster Bread Pudding JENRON DESIGNSThis recipe starts with the very best ingredients including brioche bread, sea salted caramels, Godiva white chocolate pudding, bananas and of course salted caramel whiskey as our liquor of choice.  Don’t worry it bakes off, your guests are not going to be snockered unless you add a little extra sidecar to the top in addition to the flambe’! Liquor Bananas Foster Bread Pudding JENRON DESIGNSOne the most important things, and sadly most overlooked ingredients, for a bread pudding is the bread. I like to use a rich eggy brioche which just adds to the richness and flavor of the entire dish. If you let it go stale it works better for the dish in my humble opinion and makes it less gummy.  Brioche Bread JENRON DESIGNSThe next step would be to add in your sliced bananas. My tip on bananas is to use fresh almost under ripened since you will be cooking them. If they are already ripe they will mush and break down even quicker and you will be left with nothing that resembles a banana in your bread pudding.  Bananas slices JENRON DESIGNSCreate your pudding, for the pudding mixture boil milk, sugar, cinnamon, whiskey and vanilla together, in a stove top pan. Allow it to completely cool. Then, whisk in 2 eggs and pudding mix. Pour over bread and banana mixture in your baking dish, allow to sit for a minimum of 1 hour to overnight.  Making Pudding JENRON DESIGNSBefore baking, top your pudding mixture with sea salted caramels, spacing evenly across the top of your pudding, prior to placing into a 400 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, depending on your altitude. Bananas Foster JENRON DESIGNSKeep an eye on the pudding as you bake to make sure the top layer does not burn, if it starts to brown you can add foil to stop over browning. Ultimately you want the sauce to set up and create a creamy custard style pudding with saucy caramel pockets.  Baking Bananas Foster Bread Pudding JENRON DESIGNS

    David and I both cook and this is a great recipe. These old fashion retro ones are the best in my opinion, they have this unique voice in a landscape of boring.
