I am a huge ‘Chopped’ fan. But I get so angry because just about every episode someone or both of the final two contestants make bread pudding! It drives me insane, because the judges want something different and original. I just feel sorry for them because they have to eat so many bread puddings. Meanwhile, my husband would love to be a judge with all that bread pudding!
I haven’t had many that I like. Mostly because there are raisins and nuts in them. Ick! But after watching so many ‘Chopped’ episodes, I thought “hey, it looks pretty easy”. And I was right. I didn’t follow a recipe, but I did look at some recipes to see what actually goes into a bread pudding. #1 ingredient bread of some sort. Since I spent all day yesterday making homemade bread, I had plenty of yummy rolls and a loaf. My homemade bread is actually whole wheat and I put some flax seed in there for extra healthiness.
Jeff loves Banana’s Foster, so I thought I’d spice his up with some bananas and brown sugar.
This recipe will make two individual servings.
first, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
cover them in cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter or coconut oil.
bake for 10 or so minutes. you want them soft and the sugar melted.
1 1/2 cup milk
1 tbs vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup of sugar ( i used brown and raw sugar)
fill your ramekin.
next, get out your bananas.
bake for 25 to 30 minutes. stick a knife in and if it comes out clean then they are done. you don’t want them to be browned.
