Okay, so I really wanted to post tomorrow (probably will) but I was too excited about this and needed to get it out! I used up that leftover banana bread in a banana pudding last night. It was really good. Archie had some for breakfast this morning and even Mom had a dish last night. Mumzi loves bananas but hates banana bread so it had to be good for her to finish off her bowl! I just cut up 4 bananas, made 2 boxes of banana pudding, folded in an 8 oz. container of cool-whip and sliced up a half loaf (leftover) banana bread. Mixed it all up and YUM! Today I decided, since I used up the last of the bread, I had to make another loaf to start on the bread pudding. I’ve scoured the internet in hopes to find a recipe tailored to banana bread instead of brioche, challah, wheat bread or the likes, but alas, none. So I’ll just create! I was hoping it was already tried since I’d like to make it less rich. I have a feeling, a normal serving will need to be cut in half. If I have any left, I’ll probably take it to my Gram’s house for the holiday, let everyone try it out. Right now the breads baking so I’ll wait until its done cooling until I start the custard.
Another thing, this time I’ve used “white whole wheat flour”. Its a new thing from Gold Medal flour and so far, pretty neat. Most recipes are okay with equal substitutions but you might want to make sure before you go ahead. I used it in the banana bread this time so we’ll see if we did okay! =]
In case I don’t get a post out tomorrow, Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! Don’t eat too much!!!
