Not to be confused with bread and butter pudding, bread pudding is a fairly substantial comfort food. It’s really warming, sweet and spicy and is perfect for when the seasons start to change and the weather gets cooler.

The real key to this recipe is to not over bake it. You don’t want to dry it out like traditional banana bread as it’ll lose the pudding texture, so make sure you keep an eye on it while it’s cooking!

Enjoy with some fat free yoghurt, or for a real treat you could even serve it warm with some low calorie ice cream – it’s sooo moreish!!

What diets is this Banana Bread Pudding suitable for?

This Banana Bread Pudding recipe is suitable for dairy free and vegetarian diets.

Do you need any special ingredients to make this Banana Bread Pudding?

Sukrin make a range of sugar substitutes that are all natural and free from calories and carbohydrates. Most importantly for us, they don’t have that nasty aftertaste. 

They do a granulated sugar replacement, a brown sugar replacement and an icing sugar replacement. You can use them all just as you would their ‘normal’ counterparts and since discovering Sukrin we won’t use anything else.

Sukrin Gold is the brown sugar replacement and can be found on Amazon. If you can get Sukrin Gold you can use normal sweetener. However, the Sukrin Gold does give the Banana Bread Pudding a nice golden colour, and a slightly different taste.

If you are using a powdered sweetener then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

That being said, you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

Eek, just tried both banana bread recipes and both looked great but collapsed after they were taken out of the oven. I usually hand mix but used a mixer for these. Could this have created extra moisture (I’ve seen this to be a reason for banana bread collapse elsewhere). I’ve also noticed sadly anyone who has has a problem with the recipes doesn’t seem to have had a reply. I’m new to Nom and loving the recipes but would like to get this one right if I can. Thank you.

    Hi Marian,

    You may find that this banana bread sinks a little in the middle but it shouldn’t completely collapse. Be sure not to open the oven door until the cooking time is up. You could also try cooking it a little longer, and turning it upside down once it comes out of the oven and cool on a wire rack.

    Hope that helps!
