Chocolate & Banana Bread Pudding

Chocolate and Banana Bread Pudding

This recipe was more of an aberration, a departure from my usual norm on several levels.It’s a mix of french toast and a bread pudding.I usually prefer the Indian version of savory french toast with a generous sprinkling of  chat masala.This dish was born out of a necessity to use my over ripe bananas and few days old bread.And I am so happy that I made it!

It’s a simple dish which has layers of flavors and textures.You can replace chocolate chips with chocolate chunks or strawberries or mangos.

You can serve it as a dessert at your dinner party or a great breakfast dish for the family. I ate this as a snack cause I was craving chocolate and sugar.I usually gravitate towards a pack of oreos or a piece(maybe the whole bar) of  bournville dark chocolate when my sugar dragon wakes up but this is my new favorite! It refrigerates  very well so you can make it one or two days before your brunch party.
