  • 12 croissants (or any bread with high butter content, such as brioche or challah)
  • 1 quart milk
  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 13 eggs
  • 1 pound 3 ounces granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 whole bananas, sliced
  • 6 ounces butter, melted


  1. Heat oven to 320 F. Cut bread into cubes. Place them in a 10-inch round, 2-inch deep baking pan. Slice bananas. Mix with the bread.

  2. Prepare custard by mixing the eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, milk and heavy cream. Pour custard over bread, making sure bread is soaked. Brush top with melted butter. Place baking dish on a large jellyroll pan. Fill jellyroll pan with water to create a gentle water bath while the pudding bakes.

  3. Bake for 1 hour, 15 minutes. Top will be golden, and skewer inserted into the pudding should come out clean.
