Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: Fifteen Minutes
Total Time: More than 1 hour

1 banana, sliced into coins
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
4 egg yolks
3 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup dark cocoa powder, sifted
1/4 tsp nutmeg, ground
3/4 tsp cinnamon, ground
10 cups bread, cut into 1" cubes
Preheat oven to 350F. Scald the milk and cream. Whisk together the whole eggs and the yolks with the sugar, cocoa & spices. Temper the egg mixture by slowly adding the hot milk/cream, stirring constantly. In a large bowl, pour the resulting custard over the bread cubes and mix in the banana slices. Let sit until much of the liquid is absorbed. Give it a good stir to be sure it's all coated. Pour the mixture into two large, greased casserole dishes. Bake for approximately 30-45 minutes. It should start to puff up and spring back when poked. Serve warm with caramel sauce. (These puddings - without sauce - freeze and reheat very well.) Yield: 16-20 portions
