And today I bring you one of my all time FAVORITE desserts.
Bananas Foster Bread Pudding.
I have a group of girlfriends who I love. We get together for each others birthdays and celebrate. Except last year our schedules got the best of us and it never happened. You see we all work together in a restaurant so it isn’t so easy to get a night off for all 5 of us.
I’m sure you guessed it.. we got together. On February 12- Mardi Gras theme was our dinner. I was in charge of dessert. Typical 🙂
I didn’t feel like making king cake… I was craving bread pudding.
I have never really had “bananas foster” it always sounded good but something else always sounded better.
Since I was craving bread pudding and bananas foster was southern dessert that popped up when I googled Mardi Gras desserts I knew I had to combine them.
I threw this together after work before the dinner party. I added as I went. Honestly I am in love with this. Every piece of bread was moist and caramelized The rum and banana extract make this bread pudding from good to AMAZING. It’s friday night as I write this and I just ate the last slither of this and it was still to die for! I cannot say enough of how much I enjoyed this.
To top the bread pudding off I made a rum/banana caramelized sauce to pour all over. Woah baby this was good!!
I also enjoyed this with ice cream because, well, let’s be honest everything is better a la mode!!
This recipe is easy, delicious and will be the hit of your next dinner party! I promise!
