Bananas Foster Bread Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce

June 12th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Serves 10 to 12

Ingredients

9 tablespoons unsalted butter
1½ cups packed light brown sugar
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 firm-ripe bananas, peeled and cut crosswise into ¾-inch thick slices
¼ cup banana liqueur
½ cup dark rum
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch salt
6 cups (½-inch cubes) day-old French bread
Vanilla ice cream
Caramel Sauce, recipe follows

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 10 by 14-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter and set aside. Melt the remaining 8 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 cup of the brown sugar and the cinnamon and cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Add the bananas and cook on both sides, turning, until the bananas start to soften and brown, about 3 minutes. Add the banana liqueur and stir to blend. Carefully add the rum and shake the pan back and forth to warm the rum and flame the pan. (Or, off the heat, carefully ignite the rum with a match and return to the heat.) Shake the pan back and forth, basting the bananas, until the flame dies. Remove from the heat and let cool.

Whisk together the eggs, remaining ½ cup brown sugar, the cream, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Add the cooled banana mixture and bread and stir to blend thoroughly. Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake until firm, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes. To serve, scoop the pudding onto dessert plates. Top each serving with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream, drizzle with caramel sauce, and serve immediately.

Caramel Sauce

Makes ¾ cup

Ingredients

¾ cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon fresh lemon juice
½ cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons to ¼ cup whole milk

Directions

Combine the sugar, water, and lemon juice in a medium heavy saucepan and cook, stirring, over medium-high heat until the sugar dissolves. Let boil without stirring until the mixture becomes a deep amber color, 2 to 3 minutes, watching closely so it doesn’t burn. Carefully add the cram (it may splatter), whisk to combine, and remove from the heat. Add the milk, 2 tablespoons at a time, until the desired consistency is reached.

Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature before serving. (The sauce will thicken as it cools.)

Apple Bread Pudding with Golden Raisins

November 22nd, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

Serves 8

INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 loaf Challah bread, crusts removed, cut into 1-inch cubes
3 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into ½-inch pieces
1 cup (6 ounces) golden raisins, plumped in hot water for 15 minutes
3 large eggs
¾ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
â…› teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
â…› teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
3 cups whole milk
2 tablespoons unsulfured molasses
¼ cup sliced almonds

PREPARATION

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Generously butter a 9×13-inch deep baking dish and set aside.

Spread the bread cubes on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 6 minutes, until crisp. Transfer to a bowl and add the apple and raisins.

In a medium bowl, using a handheld electric mixer or whisk, beat the eggs with the sugar. Beat in the ground spices, vanilla and salt.

In a medium saucepan, heat the milk with the molasses until just warm to the touch. Gradually beat the warm milk into the egg mixture, scraping the bottom and side of the bowl. Spread bread mixture out in your large baking dish, or distribute it among ramekins. Pour the custard over the bread mixture, nudging the bread around a bit to make sure it soaks all of the pieces. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Sprinkle the almonds on top. Bake in the center of the oven for about 40 minutes, until puffed and set, with the tops lightly browned. Let the bread pudding rest for at least 15 minutes before serving.
