Disney's Ohana Bread Pudding

Bread pudding was first known as "poor man's pudding" because leftover stale bread was softened with a little water, sugar, and spices. However nothing feels poor about this bread pudding.Warm from the oven, smelling of butter and cinnamon, sweetened with a caramel-like banana sauce and topped with vanilla ice cream.

Disney's Ohana Bread Pudding
Recipe adapted from Disney's Polynesian Resort

Breading Pudding
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
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.
