Banana Bread Pudding

I’m often thinking about an easy dessert that I can whip up when there are no sweets in the house and a craving hits! Well, this banana bread pudding required little time to prepare, was easy to make, and tasted great!

So, if you like bananas and bread pudding, you should not be disappointed with this combination. Doesn’t it look warm, comforting and delicious?

Buen provecho!

  • 1 loaf white bread, cubed
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 5 beaten eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 bananas, mashed

Banana-Bread Pudding


  1. Place the bread in a large baking pan and bake in a 400°F oven about 5 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, heavy cream, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar and the beaten eggs and mix well.
  3. Add bread cubes to milk mixture. Let it stand for approximately 20 minutes or until bread absorbs most of the mixture. Add the mashed banana mix well.
  4. Pour the bread-pudding mixture into a baking pan. Bake uncovered in a 350° f oven for 1 hour or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

I just finished making this dish. It is so yummy! Be sure to use a large enough pan because this puffed up quite a bit. Thanks for a simple but wonderful recipe!

Ummm where do we add the ‘sugar’ ?

I supposed in with the rest of the ingredients right?

I guess add sugar with the rest of the ingredients…oops! must have forgotten to include here! brown sugar would be nice for a change?


15 Erica December 18, 2011 at 2:32 PM

Yes, Thank you :)
You can try it with brown sugar and I would love to know the verdict!

How much bread should we use? A loaf can differ in size and can throw off the results. Can I replace the 5 whole eggs with 2 whole eggs and 3 egg whites? I am looking for something tasty but no high in fat. Also can the butter be replaced with cooking oil? Also can the sugar be replaced with splenda? Any substitute for heavy cream? Im trying to reduce calories.

Thanks for your input.

Hi Charles,

It will be a different recipe, but you can try it! I won’t taste the same and the texture will be different.

1 small loaf (about 16 oz)
