How to Make BANANA TOASTED PECAN BREAD PUDDING

Step-by-Step

  1. Place bread cubes in a greased 2 qt casserole oven dish. Pour melted butter over bread cubes,toss to coat well. Sprinkle pecans over bread.
    **** PREHEAT OVEN TO 375 DEGREES F.
  2. In a medium size bowl, lightly beat eggs; add half and half, sugar, vanilla and banana extract,cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir in bananas.
  3. Pour mixture over bread cubes and pecans and stir to coat well.
    BAKE: uncovered in preheated oven @ 375 degrees for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean.
  4. SAUCE: When pudding is about mid-way in cooking process make the sauce.
    Melt butter on low in a small sauce pan. Combine sugar and corn starch; add to butter, stir in milk and corn syrup. Cook and stir over medium to low heat until the mixture comes to a full boil, BOIL one minute. Remove from heat, stir in the extracts.
  5. When sauce is done, serve over pudding. I simply poured mine over the top. You can make some small holes so it will seep down in the pudding if you choose.
    Serve HOT or Warm, can be re-heated in microwave.
