What to Do with Your Bread Heels

banana bread pudding

Wait! Don’t throw away your bread heels!

I have a great bread pudding recipe that will bring a smile to your family’s faces.  It’s easy, quick and since it uses ingredients you usually end up with more than what you need, it’s relatively cheap.



In a large bowl, shred bread heels into about 1 inch pieces with your hands.  Don’t use the outside crust.  Add raisins.

In a small bowl, mash up the banana, then add the egg, sugars, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and melted butter.  Stir the mixture until consistent.

Add the water and the milk to the wet mixture.  Pour the wet mixture over the bread and raisins in the large bowl.

Stir the mixture with a large spoon and also begin to chop the pieces of bread to make them a bit smaller.  Stir and chop until you get a consistent mixture.  If you desire a more wet mixture just add a bit more milk.

Transfer into a baking pan and bake at about 350 degrees F or about 180 degrees Celsius for about 20-25 minutes.  Cooking times may vary with ovens and depending on how wet your pudding is.  When you see the edges are light brown, your pudding is done!

Serve warm with ice cream and enjoy!  If you like this recipe, please share it!
