  • Cut butter into 8 pieces. Place 1 piece of butter and 1/2 teaspoon sugar in each ramekin. Place an eighth of the banana slices in an even layer over butter and sugar. Cover banana with 4 pieces of bread; sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon sugar. Pour about half the cream mixture among ramekins to soak bread. Divide remaining banana slices among ramekins, sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and top with remaining bread. Pour remaining cream mixture over. Press to soak bread. Place 1 piece of butter in each; sprinkle with remaining sugar.

  • Cover each ramekin loosely with foil and bake in hot-water bath for 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 30 minutes more. Let ramekins cool on a wire rack for about 30 minutes before serving.

I read the review below but decided to move forward with the 4 oz. ramekins and it all fit perfectly. I used 151 proof dark rum but used 1 Tbsp. So how much did I like it? I LOVED IT! It's 2:06 am and I am spooning into one of the most delicious bread puddings I have ever had in my life! I drizzled with a little caramel and sprinkled with confectioners sugar. Think it would be great with a drop of rum raisin ice cream. WOW.

I thought the proportions were off for this recipe. There's no way all the ingredients can fit in 4 ramekins. I baked mine in a 9" round pie pan. The rum was a bit strong after baking, so I'd cut it down to 1 tbs. next time, and use overly-ripe bananas since just ripe bananas don't get soft enough. Otherwise, the flavors were very good, and it was a good dessert.
