Bread Pudding Recipe By Janel Adani

One of my family’s all time favorite places to eat at the Walt Disney World Resort is ‘Ohana. ‘Ohana is located upstairs in the Polynesian Resort. This is our family’s go to restaurant for major holidays and special events. We have done breakfast there and enjoyed it, but we really LOVE dinner! We all have our favorites. For my daughters they both love the giant skewers of shrimp, my son loves the noodles, my husband loves the giant skewers of steak and shrimp, and me I LOVE DESSERT!

This Bread Pudding is to die for! As my whole family is chowing down on all their shrimp and steak, in my head I am saving room for dessert. The thought of warm bread pudding with cold ice cream and warm Banana Foster sauce poured over the top is just sinful. So, I went on a search to see if I can make this at home and I came across this recipe on a website called Blog as you Bake. Check it out and see what I’m talking about and the next time you visit Walt Disney World, make sure you make a dining reservation at ‘Ohana. Enjoy!

Bread Pudding Ingredients
8 cups French bread (at least one pound loaf)
5 eggs
3 cups whole milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut bread into 1 1/2 inch cubes, place on a cookie sheet and bake until lightly toasted, about 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.

Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F. Grease a 10-inch cake pan with butter or shortening.

In a bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients. Add the bread and gently stir until it is coated with the milk mixture. Place mixture in cake pan and bake for 1 hour. Let stand 10 minutes, serve warm with ice cream.
Banana Foster Sauce Ingredients
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp rum extract
1 cup banana slices (about 4 bananas)

Combine both sugars, corn syrup, butter, spices, and half of the heavy cream in a large pan. Bring to a boil and slowly add remaining heavy cream keeping mixture at a steady boil.

Candy will brown slightly; cook 3 minutes until candy forms into a firm ball in cold water. Remove from heat and add extracts. Add sliced bananas. Serve warm.
