I make this as "banana" bread pudding, but really you could substitute the bananas for any type of fruit, so if prefer peaches, or blueberries, etc. you could do that instead.
I personally love banana bread pudding, it's one of my absolute favorite desserts in the world!
** Rum Caramel Sauce**
I thought I'd do a little update to this post and include the rum caramel sauce I serve with mine.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp rum extract
Melt the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until smooth, whisking constantly. This should only take a couple minutes.
Whisk in the cream and rum extract, bring to a bit of a light boil and cook until it thickens (about 3 - 5 mins). Remove from heat.
Serve warm over the bread pudding.
