For the bread pudding:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 yolks
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 2 mashed bananas I used what I had, 1 fresh and 1 frozen
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • cup fine brown sugar
  • 1 ¾ cups of whole milk or heavy cream
  • 7 slices of a thick white bread about 5 cups of torn pieces

For the Banana Foster Sauce

  • ½ stick of butter 4 T
  • 3 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar
  • ½ shot of rum or 1 T vanilla if you prefer
  • A splash of heavy cream or whipping cream Reserve the rest to whip and put on top of the dessert.


  • Whisk the eggs and egg yolks together until frothy.
  • Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and mashed banana until everything is mixed evenly.
  • Add both of the sugars and whisk for 30 seconds.
  • Finally, whisk in the milk and then add the pieces of bread that are already torn up (a slice of bread should yield about 5 town pieces).
  • Stir slowly to ensure that all of the bread has absorbed the liquid (but don’t stir too much or the bread will decompose).
  • Pour the mixture into an 8x8 in pan and let it sit for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C)
  • After allowing it to rest, put the pan into another bigger pan that has been filled with 1 inch of warm water (a water bath/bain Marie)
  • Bake the pudding for 45 minutes. Make sure it isn’t liquidy when you take it out and you want it to be browned on top.
  • While the pudding is cooling, make the Foster sauce and whip the whipping cream.
  • To make the sauce, start by melting the butter in a heavy pan on a low heat.
  • When it is almost all melted, add the sugar and whisk.
  • Add the rum or vanilla and allow the alcohol to evaporate (if you use rum it’ll catch on fire for a moment).
  • Take the pan off the heat and slowly incorporate the cream. Spoon the sauce over the pudding and put a spoonful of whipped cream on top. Garnish with fresh sliced banana if you wish!
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
