Banana bread and butter pudding

When I want something good and homely nothing can compare with bread and butter pudding. I made some today with added banana and baked with a thick custard over the top.  Tastes like a night in with my best friends.

1 loaf of banana bread
Salted butter
1 liter milk (Cream is divine!)
6 yolks
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 ripe bananas, cut into thin slices

500ml ready made or store bought thick custard

Beat the eggs and milk (or cream) until you can’t see any yolk.
Slice the banana bread into normal thickness slices. Butter both sides and layer onto the bottom of 20 x 20 cm oven proof dish. Pour in enough of the egg milk mixture to just cover the bread. Press the banana into the gaps. Repeat this until the dish is full, or the bread is finished.
Cover with tin foil and bake at 180 C / 350 F for about 20 to 30 minutes or until just set.  Spread the custard over the top of the pudding as soon as it has just set and put back into the oven to finish cooking.

Have it like this or with some ice cream. Brilliant!
