Like trying a brand new recipe when I promised to bring dessert for a party. Yup, I like to live on the edge.
I have a huge stack of recipes ripped out of old magazines, so I decided to start there. And of course, something caught my eye - Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding. I mean, with a name like that, it has to be good, right?
It was amazing.

It took a couple of days to make this - I made the banana bread in advance so I wasn't rushing around like a crazy woman on Saturday afternoon. Or a crazier-than-usual woman. The banana bread sat in the fridge for a couple of days and the kids had strict 'do-not-eat-under-pain-of-death' orders. (banana bread doesn't last long in our house - a day or two, tops)
The recipe was fairly straightforward and got rave reviews. The host told me that it was good enough for seventh or eighth helpings and I had requests for the recipe from the other guests.
So, if anyone is looking for a huge ego boost and a relatively easy dessert recipe, here it is: Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding
Yummy. It's definitely a make again.
