Updated June 25, 2008

Ingredients

Strawberry Sauce, if desired

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen (partially thawed) unsweetened whole strawberries, sliced

Bread Pudding

  • 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (2 medium)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups soymilk
  • 2/3 cup fat-free egg product
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups 1-inch-cubes white whole-grain bread or French bread
  • 1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Garnish, if desired

  • Frozen (thawed) fat-free whipped topping

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-quart saucepan, stir together granulated sugar, cornstarch and water. Stir in 1/2 cup of the strawberries. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened. Cool 10 minutes. Stir in remaining 1 cup strawberries. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch quiche dish or 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat bananas, brown sugar, soymilk, egg product and vanilla with wire whisk until smooth. Fold in bread and 2 tablespoons of the chocolate chips. Spread in quiche dish. Sprinkle with remaining chocolate chips. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and set.
  • 4
    Cut warm bread pudding into wedges. Serve warm pudding with strawberry sauce. Garnish with whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate any remaining bread pudding.

  • Bread pudding made with a bread that's too soft can be very soft and almost mushy. Gently squeeze bread loaves and choose the one that has some resistance and doesn't feel like a marshmallow!
  • You can serve the bread pudding with prepared strawberry topping instead of making the Strawberry Sauce.
