Banana Bread Pudding Famous Recipe

Banana Bread Pudding

2 Tbs (30 ml) butter
4-5 bananas, peeled and thickly sliced
4 eggs
2 cups (500 ml) half-and-half or heavy cream
1/4 cup (60 ml) brown sugar
1/4 cup (60 ml) dark rum (optional)
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
1/2 tsp (2 ml) ground cinnamon
1/2 lb (225 g) egg bread, brioche, or white bread, sliced
1/4 cup (60 ml) raisins
Rum sauce (optional)
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Heat the butter in a skillet over moderate heat and saute the
bananas until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Set aside. Whisk
together the eggs, half-and-half, brown sugar, optional rum,
vanilla, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Layer one-third of the
bread slices in a greased 9×5-inch (23×12 cm) baking dish, top with
half the bananas and raisins, and pour one-third of the egg mixture
over all. Repeat with another layer of bread, bananas, raisins, and
egg mixture, and finish with a final layer of bread and egg mixture.
Bake in a preheated 350F (180C) oven until firm to the touch, 30 to
40 minutes. Serve warm, chilled, or at room temperature, topped
with rum sauce and/or vanilla ice cream if desired. Serves 6 to 8.

Rum Sauce
1/4 cup (60 ml) butter
1/2 cup (125 ml) half-and-half or heavy cream
1/2 cup (125 ml) brown sugar
1/4 tsp (1 ml) salt
2-3 Tbs (30-45 ml) dark rum

Combine the butter, half-and-half, brown sugar, and salt in a
saucepan and bring to a rolling boil over moderate heat, stirring
frequently. Remove from the heat and stir in the rum. Makes about
1 cup (250 ml).
