Banana Bread-Bread Pudding

Recipe by ciao4293
READY IN: 1hr 10mins


  • 1
    loaf banana bread (approximately 9 x 5, or 8 x 4 inches, OR about 6 cups total cubed banana bread)
  • 2
    cups milk
  • 13
    cup sugar
  • 1
    teaspoon vanilla
  • 1
    banana (chopped or sliced, you may need 2 if they're smallish)


  • Heat the oven to 350°F, and grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  • Slice the banana bread into 1 inch slices, place on a baking sheet, and toast in the oven, about 8-10 minutes, then cut into cubes.
  • Place half the cubes in the baking dish, and cover with the chopped or sliced banana, then add the rest of the bread cubes over that.
  • Whisk the half and half, milk, eggs, sugar and vanilla in a bowl, and pour over the banana bread cubes in the baking dish.
  • Let it sit for about 5 minutes before putting it in the oven.
  • Bake for one hour--a knife inserted in the center will look wet, but mostly clean.
  • Let it set for 5-10 minutes, and scoop out and serve warm, with cream, or it's even delicious plain.
