  • 6 slices (about 18oz/515g or about ¾ of a loaf) banana bread (cubed)
  • 2 medium bananas (mashed)
  • 1 ½ cups (12floz/355ml) whole milk
  • 1 ½ cups (12floz/355ml) heavy cream
  • 4 large eggs
  • cup (2oz/57g) dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Butter for the dish
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and butter an 8x8-inch baking dish.

  2. Slice and cut the banana bread into small cubes. Place into the buttered dish.

  3. In a medium bowl, mashed banana with a potato masher or fork until fine.

  4. Next, add in the eggs, sugar, milk, cream, vanilla extract, and salt and pour evenly over the banana bread. Let soak for a minimum of 30 minutes but up to 4 hours. Push the bread down into the custard to ensure it all gets well soaked.

  5. Bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

  6. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream on top.
