Holiday Banana Bread Pudding

Prep: 15 minutes
Bake: 40 minutes

Serves: 8

The name says holiday, but this mouthwatering dessert featuring cinnamon swirl bread, bananas and melted chocolate is perfect for any time...and it's ready in less than an hour!


12 slices Pepperidge Farm® Cinnamon Swirl Bread, cut into cubes
2 large bananas, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces
2 1/2 cups milk
4 eggs
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract


Heat the oven to 350°F.  Lightly grease a 2-quart shallow baking dish.

Place the bread cubes, bananas and chocolate pieces into the baking dish.  Beat the milk, eggs, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk.  Pour the milk mixture over the bread mixture.  Stir and press the bread mixture into the milk mixture to coat.

Bake for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Flavor Variation: For Raspberry and White Chocolate Bread Pudding, substitute 1 cup fresh raspberries for the bananas and white chocolate pieces for the semi-sweet.  Proceed as directed above.
