Banana Bread and Butter Pudding

This is a delicious and reasonably healthy dessert.  Despite the title there is no butter in this recipe and it still tastes great, it also smells wonderful.  This recipe is based on one from Coles.

A healthier bread and butter pudding that still tastes great.


  • 4 Slices wholemeal bread (crusts removed and cut into quarters)
  • 1 Medium banana (sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Canola oil spray
  • 1/8 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup low fat milk
  • 185ml light evaporated milk


1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Lightly spray a 1 litre casserole dish with the canola oil spray
2. In a medium saucepan combine the milk, evaporated milk, maple syrup and vanilla. Stir over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes until hot. Cool slightly.
3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy. Gradually whisk in the warm milk.
4. Place layers of bread in the bottom of the casserole dish, placing a few banana slices between each layer. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the top and sprinkle with sugar.
5. Place the casserole dish into a large baking pan. Pour just-boiled water into the baking pan until it comes half way up the sides of the casserole dish. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the custard is set. (A knife inserted into the custard should come out clean).
6. Remove from the baking pan, allow to cool for 5 minutes, then serve.
