"Bread Pudding is a famous dessert in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This version is from dickiebrennanssteakhousedotcom. I haven't made this before and it sure sounds like a lot of bread to fit into that size pan - but they're famous for it so I'm guessing that it works. :)"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Slice French bread and dry in a 200F oven for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Combine remaining pudding ingredients in a large container and blend well with a hand mixer.

Step 3

Thinly slice dried French bread and place in an 8 x 10 x 2-inch pan.

Step 4

Pour pudding into pan and mush all bread by hand so that the liquid is absorbed and the bread becomes very soggy.

Step 5

Be sure to flatten all of the lumps.

Step 6

Cover pan with foil and bake at 300F for 2 ½ hours, or until a skewer inserted in the center of the pudding comes out dry.

Step 7

Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside to cool.


Step 8

Melt butter in a sauce pot.

Step 9

Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well.

Step 10

Add the rum and ignite. Allow the flames to subside. Then, stir in the banana liqueur.

Step 11

Add fresh bananas and simmer over medium heat for about 2 minutes or until the sauce coats the spoon.

Step 12

To Serve: Cut bread pudding into 3 ½ x 3 ½-inch squares.
