Blueberry Bread Pudding Makes the Perfect Dessert

Bread pudding is one of those treats often seen when dining out, but you hardly ever hear of anyone making it at home.  It was not a treat made at my home when I was growing up, but after making it once, it became a big hit.  One of the great things about bread pudding is the ability to add seasonal fruit, beyond the traditional raisins.  I love making Blueberry Bread Pudding, and my family loves when I make it.  It’s simple, takes just a few minutes to put together, and when you serve it, it’s elegant and perfect for company.

The Bread Makes a Difference in Blueberry Bread Pudding

The bread really does make a difference in Blueberry Bread Pudding.  Dense breads, such as a boule or Italian make good Blueberry Bread Pudding.  I checked out the breadmaker at a local farmer’s market and found a wonderful brown bread for this recipe.  It adds another level of flavor to the Blueberry Bread Pudding.  Choose a bread that is rich and dense for the best Blueberry Bread Pudding.  Also, cutting the bread and leaving it out overnight to get stale, or toasting it in the oven for a few minutes before mixing it with the wet ingredients makes for a much better, less soggy Blueberry Bread Pudding.

What is Irish Soda Bread?

Irish Soda Bread is a basic quick bread that is hearty and tasty, perfect for a good bowl of stew.  This is an easy bread to make, with just a few ingredients to assemble.  Within an hour, you can have two beautiful loaves, ready for your souping pleasures!

Two Oven Temperatures Make Irish Soda Bread Crispy and Tender

Starting the oven at a higher temperature seals the outside crust of Irish Soda Bread, making it crispy and chewy, while baking at a lower temperature produces a tender crumb inside the bread.  This process makes an olde world style bread that is amazing.

When I was little, I used to call Banana Bread, Nana Bread, because my Nana (grandmother) was the only one in the family that made it, but she made a lot of it.  Later on, I realized that it was truly banana bread, but I still call it Nana bread and think of her when I make it.  It’s a simple little sweet bread, complete with a fantastic texture and an even better flavor.

Banana Bread from Single Leftover Bananas

I always seem to have one or two bananas left over in a bunch by the time my family tires of eating them for the week.  Instead of wasting them, I freeze them for later batches of Banana Bread.  The skins turn black and sometimes wrinkle, but I assure you that they are just fine for baking!  Simply thaw them, cut off the end of the stem, and squeeze into the flour like a tube of toothpaste.  The banana pulp will slide right out and you’ll be ready to mix incorporate them.

Making Banana Bread Fluffy

Quite by accident, I was making banana bread one day and had mixed the bananas into the flour mixture, and realized that I had no eggs.  I had already mixed the flour into the bananas, and I didn’t want to waste them.  So, I let it sit while I waited to get the eggs.  The banana-flour mixture started to rise like yeast from the baking powder and soda.  I made up the banana bread anyway and the result was amazing.  The resulting bread was fluffy and light.

Banana Bread Freezes Well

I usually make up several loaves of banana bread at once, cool them, and freeze all but one.  They freeze marvelously.  When you’d like to serve one, thaw it and put it, unwrapped, in a 300 degree F oven for about 5 minutes to crisp up the crust.  It will be just like you baked it.

 

1 ¾ C Flour

2 t baking powder

¼ t baking soda

½ t salt

1/3 C shortening

2/3 C sugar

2 eggs, well beaten

1 C mashed ripe bananas (2-3 bananas)

Mix flour, powder, soda and salt.  Add bananas and mix well.  Set aside.

With electric mixer, beat shortening in bowl until creamy.  Add sugar gradually to shortening and beat until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and beat well.

Add the banana mixture to the shortening mixture and beat well.  Add the rest of the banana mixture, beating until incorporated and smooth.

Grease and flour pan.  Bake at 350°F, 40-45 minutes.

Makes 1 loaf

 

Banana bread is a wonderful, moist bread that is great on its own, or try making French toast out of a few thick slices!

Delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe!

There are a million banana bread recipes out there, but this is the very best one that I have ever tried, and I’ve tried many. It’s not healthy, but it IS delicious. I suppose you could substitute applesauce in a one-to-one ratio for the oil if you really wanted to lessen its impact on your muffin top.  😉 The only reason I used whole wheat flour (as pictured) is because I had about a cup and a half left in the bag and wanted to get it out of my pantry.
So ignore the calendar (swim suit season is coming) and the scale (ouch!) and go for the full-fat, carby glory of this uber-tasty banana bread. I added a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut to the top of the loaves which gets nice and toasty and crunchy in the oven.
Do I even need to remind you not to forget the chocolate chips?!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
(What’s in the bowl? The mashed bananas)
Ingredients:
1 c vegetable oil
2 c sugar
3 eggs
2 t vanilla
3 c flour (can substitute half whole wheat flour, but what’s the point?)
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 t salt
2 t cinnamon
2 c mashed, very ripe bananas (about 3 large or 4 small)
1 full bag milk chocolate chips
optional: shredded coconut
Directions:
  1. Oven to 325.
  2. Grease two 9 inch loaf pans.
  3. Beat oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
  4. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  5. Add to the oil mixture, stir just to combine.
  6. Fold in banana and chocolate chips gently, and pour into prepared pans.
  7. If desired, add a sprinkle of coconut to the top.
  8. Bake 1 hour. Worry about your hips later. 😛
