A local restaurant served a version of this recipe. I went crazy over it and decided to create my own. It's great served warm or cold.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

  3. Line a roasting pan with a damp kitchen towel. Place loaf pan on towel inside roasting pan, and place roasting pan on oven rack. Fill roasting pan with water to reach halfway up the sides of the loaf pan. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

I can't give this 5 stars because of two things: the amount of sugar (it does not actually need ANY sugar at all) and the baking instructions, which should have mentioned that the water for the water bath must be scalding hot, otherwise it'll take longer to cook. Those changes aside, this is a wonderful recipe. Lovely with a scoop of ice cream. One other minor issue is that the chocolate chips like to sink to the bottom. Next time I may put half the bread mixture into the pan, add a layer of chocolate chips, add the rest of the custard, then the rest of the chips.

This was soo yummy. Really good for using up old bread and over ripe bananas. I doubled the amount of chocolate chips and used torn up cinnamon raisin bread and half a loaf of old french bread. I also added a cup of chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg. I put this in a glass 9 X 13 at 325 and it only took 40 minutes to cook. Better than homemade oven fresh chocolate chip cookies. I will make this for company.

I thought the idea of chocolate banana bread pudding sounded great. Then I read the recipe and saw that there was only one measly cup of chocolate chips in the recipe. I searched further and found another recipe that was needlessly complicated, but it had one idea I liked, and that was to toss the dry bread cubes with 1/4 cup of melted butter, and then toss that with the 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of cocoa. I increased the bread to 6 cups, and the milk to 3 cups. I added vanilla and one more banana, then baked this in a 9 by 9 baking pan for 35 minutes. It came out beautifully, rich and chocolaty, but not really too close to the original recipe. It needed way more chocolate to satisfy my craving. Oh, I also used one whole package of chocolate chips instead of one cup.
