Slow Cooker Bananas Foster Bread Pudding from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

Realizing you can make delicious desserts in the slow cooker has to be one of my favorite discoveries. If you think low and slow moist heat is only good for soups and stews, there’s a whole new world for you to discover. This world contains some of the best sweet treats you can find, like this bread pudding with a twist.

It tastes like the moistest banana bread you’ve ever had, and it’s perfect served as breakfast, dessert or a brunch side dish. It would be an impressive contribution to a potluck, and best of all, it’s incredibly easy to make.

The “hard sauce” served on the side is like a cross between frosting and glaze. The sweet cinnamon flavor adds a lot to the bread pudding, like the glaze on top of a cinnamon roll. The banana flavor is fantastic, but you could substitute any other mashable fruit, like fresh berries, cooked apples or stone fruit.
