chocolate banana bread pudding


toronto pastry chef anna olsen includes this in her own christmas eve traditions! i like it because its actually a "double duty" recipe ........ i used half the banana bread on its own, then used the other half to make half the bread pudding. you could use your own favourite banana bread recipe - or even a store bought banana bread if you're really pushed for time. i served it warm with frozen vanilla yogurt but i actually preferred it the next day at room temperature.
