20--- Bananas Foster Bread Pudding

Bananas foster is a dessert that is typically served to you on fire. What fun!

This version is a little bit more tame. The angelfood cake makes this lighter than a typical bread pudding, with the flavor of bananas foster.

Dessert CAN be eaten in moderation! Stick with the suggested servings size (1 cup)!

Bananas Foster Bread Pudding

Serves 8

10oz angelfood cake (homemade or store-bought), cut into cubes

3 medium bananas, sliced into 1/2" slices

2 1/4 cup skim milk

1/4 cup brown sugar, packed

3 eggs

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

4oz spiced rum

Powdered sugar (optional as garnish)

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spread out angel cake cubes on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes, tossing three times, until lightly toasted and dry.

2. Whisk milk, eggs, sugar, rum and vanilla in a large bowl until sugar is dissolved. Gently stir in cake cubes and banana slices; pour into an 8-in. square baking dish. Cover dish with foil. Let stand 30 minutes at room temperature for cake cubes to absorb most of the milk mixture.

3. Bake, covered, 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove foil; continue to bake 25 minutes.

4. Let stand 15 minutes. Dust top with confectioners’ sugar (as desired)
