“Bread-less” Banana Strawberry Breakfast Bread Pudding: Eggs, Bananas, Cinnamon, Vanilla Extract, Baking Powder, Fresh Strawberries and Whipped Cream

BreadlessBananaStrawberryBreadPudding

I’ll be completely honest – this recipe was created from a disaster. And that disaster was my attempt to make a solely egg and banana-based pancake that I soon found out was somewhat impossible to flip/keep intact. After tasting the pieces of the no-longer pancake, I found that it reminded me of something else: bread pudding. The consistency and flavor reminded me of it spot-on. So, I decided to test something out: I “scrambled” the remaining egg and banana mixture, then stuffed the pieces into a small cup, topping it with strawberry slices, whipped cream and extra cinnamon. And, admittedly, I was pleasantly surprised (and ate the entire thing!). I’ve always loved bread pudding – my brother makes an excellent French version and I’ve tried it at various restaurants as a dessert. However, I have never made it myself. Another great part of this recipe (aside of tasting great) is it comes together with only a handful of ingredients. So, if you have ripe bananas to use and are craving something sweet and simple for breakfast, I recommend giving this a go. Enjoy! 🙂

Recipe by © Alysha Melnyk 2018

Kitchen Tools:

Small Mixing Bowl

Fork or Potato Masher

Liquid Measuring Cup

Measuring Spoon

Stovetop

Spatula

Small Cup

Ingredients:

2 Ripe Bananas, Sliced into Small Parts

2 Large Eggs

1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon

Olive Oil or Butter (*For Sauté Pan)

For Topping: Fresh Strawberries (Sliced), Whipped Cream ( I Use Isigny Ste Mere – Creme a la Vanille de Madagascar), Extra Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, etc.

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut the banana into thin slices and place in mixing bowl with two large eggs. Using a fork (or potato masher), mix/mash everything together until somewhat smooth in consistency.
  2. Next, add in vanilla extract, baking powder and cinnamon, mixing to combine. Pour the mixture into a liquid measuring cup (makes it easier for pouring into the sauté pan).
  3. Place the sauté pan on medium heat with either a little bit of olive oil or butter for coating the pan.
  4. Place pancake mixture in pan and cook, then “scramble” (almost like you are doing scrambled eggs) until pieces are browned and cooked. Place on a plate and cook the rest of the mixture.
  5. Next, taking a small cup or bowl, press pieces inside. You may want to microwave/reheat this slightly to get everything nice and warm/melded together nicely (I put mine in the microwave for a minute).
  6. Next, place sliced strawberries, whipped cream, extra cinnamon, and maple syrup (if desired) on top.
  7. Enjoy! 🙂
