  • Banana Bread Pudding with Bourbon Hard Sauce

  • 1 large loaf day old white bread cubed

  • 4 Eggs

  • 2 cups Milk

  • 2 cups 35% heavy whipping cream

  • 2 cups brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon Nutmeg

  • 4 very ripe Bananas peeled

  • Banana Bread Pudding with Bourbon Hard Sauce:

  • 1.

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  • 2.

    Toast cubes of bread in the oven until golden brown and crispy. This will add flavour and help them absorb the pudding mixture.

  • 3.

    Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Mash the bananas and add to the mixture. Stir in the toasted bread cubes and let rest for 15 minutes or so while the bread soaks up the pudding.

  • 4.

    Pour into a 9" by 13" baking dish and bake until the pudding sets and the top browns a bit, about 60 minutes.

  • Bourbon Hard Sauce:

  • 1.

    Gently heat the butter, brown sugar, bourbon and nutmeg in a small saucepot until the sugar dissolves.

  • 2.

    Whisk egg in a small bowl until frothy, and then whisk into the sauce. Bring the mixture to a simmer and whisk until thickened. Cool and serve at room temperature!

you could try and flame the alcohol off so it leaves you with the flavor
