Chocolate Banana Bread-Bread Pudding

I got home last night smelling smoky from grilling pizza on the grill at our Young Women's activity prepping for girls camp (I am a die-hard girls camper . . . love it!) and spent a few hours in my kitchen making Chicken Enchilada's and a super easy and delish Chicken Chili. I am bringing dinner to my darling neighbor and started cooking and couldn't stop . . She is a southern gal so I opted for a "southern dessert." This dessert is everything a dessert should be . . . totally fulfills the chocolate craving and is rich, easy to make and is a great dessert to make when utilizing leftover bread!!! I love Dori Greenspan's Cocoa-Nana Bread recipe! I make it whenever I have browning banana's and freeze it for another. Today it made a grand appearance in a bread pudding that knocked my socks off! I think our neighbors will enjoy it . . . I did . . .Chocolate Banana Bread-Bread Pudding
Recipe by: Emily
5-7 Cups cubed Chocolate Banana Bread (fill the pan!!!)
4 Eggs
2 cups Milk
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla

1. Spread the cubed bread evenly in a 2-quart baking dish. In a bowl beat the eggs, milk, brown sugar and vanilla together. Pour over the cubed bread and allow to "soak" in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

2. Preheat an over to 350 degrees. Cover the bread pudding with foil and place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, uncover the pudding and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving with a scoop of ice cream and caramel or chocolate sauce. Enjoy!

I know a lot of folks who don’t eat eggs (they’re allergic, for health reasons, or concerns about animal cruelty). Here’s an awesome site that gives tips on cooking and baking without eggs:
