ChocBanana Bread Butter Pudding

All by myself...
It's Elsa's first day of school after a long break.
Managed to do a bit of tidying up before the housekeeping team came to do their weekly clean-up.
Yup, I'm one of those who has to clean the house before the cleaner comes.
Having a maid is much too stressful for me...







ChocBanana Bread Butter Pudding


2 eggs
1/4 liter cream
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 loaf day old bread, sliced and spread with butter on both sides
2 bananas, sliced
2 cup semisweet dark chocolate chips
1/4 tsp salt.





Preheat oven to 175 C.
Butter a medium-size oven-proof dish.
In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, water, sugar, salt and vanilla until well combined.
Cut each slice of buttered bread in half – leaving the crusts on. Arrange buttered bread over the base of the baking dish. Arrange banana slices in between the bread. Sprinkle the chocolate chips all over.
Pour the egg mixture over the prepared bread layers and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
Place the dish into the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the custard has set and the top is golden-brown.
