Banana Cream Cheese Bread Pudding

Karina Alcala


I love bread pudding. I made this recipe when I had some almost too ripe bananas. It is really good hot out of the oven with a scoop of butter pecan ice cream. It reminds me of the Mexican Capirutada my mom used to make.

How to Make Banana Cream Cheese Bread Pudding


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter a baking dish I use two pie plates because my kids like sprinkles on theirs. Slice bananas into rounds. Pull challah bread apart into bite size pieces.
  2. In large mixing bowl crack eggs add sugar, salt, cinnamon, milk and vanilla and with a whisk mix until well combined. With your fingers add small chunks of cream cheese. Add bananas and bread in mix until well combined let sit for 10 minutes. Pour into baking dish making sure you get everything in.
  3. When your oven is done preheating put dish in oven and bake for 55 minutes to an hour. Let cool down and serve with a scoop of ice cream or some whipped cream. M kinds love sprinkles on theirs. You can add nuts as well I don't on mine just on my kids dish. I like my bread pudding to melt in my mouth.
