whole wheat bread
2 1/2 cups
ripe bananas, sliced
Mine was DELICIOUS. But I must say that I did make quite a few changes.... 6 slices of bread instead of 4, 1/4 cup applesauce plus 1 tablespoon smart balance light instead of butter, added 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 tsp. cinnamon. Omitted raisins and added 1/2 cup walnuts. While the bread and oats were soaking, I mixed together everything but the bananas. I mashed up one of the 4 bananas and added it to the cinnamon mixture and let it soak in the fridge while the bread/oats were doing their thing for about 1 1/2 hours. Baked for 55 minutes and came out perfect! (see my photo!) I recommend 'chopping' the bananas instead of slicing so that you get more of them distributed throughout the dish and you get a little in every bite. This was great for dessert but even better for breakfast. I think rum or rum extract would really make this yummy.
OK, but next time I'll mash the bananas as the slices were a rather odd texture. I also added cinnamon and 2 eggs.
Pretty tasty - I used white bread instead of whole wheat, light margarine instead of butter, and nonfat milk instead of lowfat, and I don't think it made a difference. I did use raisins. This is a good way to use leftover bananas, oats, the heels of bread loaves. The only addition I would make is a pinch or two of cinnamon - without it, this recipe was a little bland.
My husband loves it! And it smells wonderful. I did add 2 eggs as other people have suggested, the pudding seems to hold better. I served it with vanilla ice cream. It's a hit!!!
I used some suggestions given: I added cinnamon and vanilla extract and walnuts. Also, I used applesauce instead of butter, and soy milk instead of regular milk (to lower fat and cholesterol). I cut down the bananas to 2, and used the Splenda/brown sugar mixture to cut sugar calories. I added currants as well as Heath toffee chips to sweeten it up, because I was making it for a dessert. I served with vanilla bean ice cream and drizzled caramel sauce on it. It would not have been sweet enough for a dessert otherwise. I rated the recipe as a 4 by itself, but with all my changes/additions, it was a 5! I got rave reviews and everyone wanted more.
This has now become a staple dessert in my home. I use soy milk, substituted sucanat for the sugar, use only one banana and added a sprinkling of chocolate chips to the top. My family LOVES this, and it's so EASY!
Wonderful! Only had 2 bananas and used nonfat powdered milk. Replaced the oil with applesauce and it came out great! Will definitely make it again.
