This really was quite disgusting. No one in the family liked it and I like to think I am easily pleased!!!

I just made this and it was absolutely lovely! I added white chocolate buttons to it and they worked really well.

Easy and delicious! I opted to put in in the oven so the bread would get nice and crusty - microwave might have worked, but I think the toast from the oven was probably nicer. I used two medium bananas and will definitely make this again.

This was good- a nice change to normalbread and butter pudding. I used hot cross buns, and mixed in two bananas as suggested and cooked it in the oven. i cut out small circles of the pudding and served as part of a trio of desserts. Went down very well!

We prefer to have some of the banana inside the pudding as well as on top, so I make the bread, butter and banana into little sandwiches, then pour the eggy mixture over.

Do you toast the bread both sides ?

really easy, used teacakes instead... was nice with the extra raisins and sweeter bread. Think it makes a lil bit too much milky mixture, ended up throwing about 1/4 of it away. went down incredibly well though, defs going to do it again.
