Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

4 eggs

2 cups (500 mL) milk

1 cup (250 mL) sugar

1 tablespoon (15 mL) vanilla extract

6 cups (220 g) bread, cut into cubes, divided

2 bananas, sliced

½ cup (170g) chocolate chips


Chocolate Drizzle

¼ cup (50 mL) chocolate chips for drizzle topping

1 ½ tsp (7 mL) oil

Preheat oven to 350°F (175° C). Grease an 8 x 8-inch (20 x 20 cm) pan. In a large mixing bowl, mix eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla until smooth. In the prepared pan, layer half the bread, then the banana slices and ¼ cup (50 mL) of the chocolate chips. Top with remaining bread cubes and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over top. Pour egg mixture over bread layers. Let rest 10 – 15 minutes for bread to soak up egg mixture. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

In a small bowl, microwave ¼ cup (50 mL) chocolate chips and oil for 20 second intervals, stirring at each interval until chocolate has melted. Drizzle over pudding.
