Gluten Free Cream Cheese and Banana Bread Pudding
Oh, my goodness!! Can I just say that I am so EXCITED about today’s post. I have been CRAVING bread pudding for, OH!!! Like forever! A few years ago, a family friend had made the most delicious, Bread Pudding I had ever tasted. I have yet, to have another Bread Pudding, that was quite as yummy as that was. Since our family has been Gluten Free, bread pudding isn’t something that I have thought of making myself. ( I have NO idea why I haven’t )
Only as of recently, did I start thinking about making a Gluten Free version. Glutino offers a wide variety of products, we have tried and used about 80% of them, with great success. So I don’t know why, I was so nervous about trying their Gluten Free bread. Maybe it has something to do with, GF bread, overall. Before going GF, BREAD was my, EVERYTHING!!! I was particularly fond of HOT bread, straight out of the oven. Talk about some, Seriously, YUMMY memories.
I guess, I have put off, the making of Bread Pudding because I wasn’t sure how it would convert over. From NON GF to being Gluten Free.
That is until now!
Thanks to Glutino, I am now able to ENJOY a delicious, Bowl FULL of GF Bread Pudding.
This recipe is so very simple and easy to make.
I used 10 slices of Glutino bread. 5 of the Multigrain and 5 of the White, Sandwich Bread. I thought the combination would be fun to try, it’s certainly not necessary.
Cut your bread into Cubes or tear into pieces by hand.
3 Organic Pastured Eggs.
We love using Primal Pastures Eggs.
6 tablespoons of butter at Room Temperature.
We like using Organic Pastures Raw Butter.
2 cups of milk ( or 1 cup milk and 1 cup heavy cream) 2 Medium or 3 Small Banana’s, 4-6 ounces of Organic Cream Cheese (cut into small pieces), 1/2 tsp Real Salt, 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar ( or sugar of choice and sweeten to taste).
In a Separate Bowl, whip your eggs,add in your Milk/Cream, Butter, Coconut Sugar and Salt.
Mix thoroughly and add your sliced Banana.
Pour over your Cubed Bread and mix carefully!
NOTE* Gluten Free Bread will absorb the Liquid quickly, don’t let it sit to long before putting into the oven and do NOT over mix/stir.
Carefully FOLD in your Cream Cheese.
OPTIONAL* Sprinkle the top with some Extra Coconut Sugar.
Bake at 375 uncovered for 40 minutes.
This time may Vary depending on your ovens temperature.
Let your Gluten Free, Cream Cheese & Banana, Bread Pudding cool.
Once Cool, serve and enjoy!
We LOVE making a homemade, Butter Cream sauce to go with our GF Bread Pudding.
It’s super simple and quick to make.
Take about 4 Tbsp of Raw Organic butter and melt in a small sauce pan. Add 1 cup of Heavy Cream and 1 tbsp of Coconut Sugar and 1tsp Organic Vanilla.
Mix until warm and bubbly.
Drizzle or POUR it over your GF Bread Pudding. It makes it taste so VERY yummy!
I am so glad that I finally took the plunge and made GF bread pudding.
This has quickly become one of our family favorites.
