 Ingredients List

  • 5 tb Butter
  • 2/3 c Granulated sugar
  • 12 sl Dry bread, no crust, broken
  • Into 3/4 inch pieces
  • 1 lb Ripe bananas
  • 2 tb Dark Jamaican Rum
  • 3 tb Apricot preserves
  • 3 oz Eagle brand condensed milk
  • 8 Egg yolks
  • 6 Whole eggs
  • 2 1/2 c Milk
  • 1/2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/4 ts Nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter the bottom of an 8 inch square baking
pan with 1 tablespoon of butter and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Place the bread pieces in the bottom of the pan. Dot with the remaining
butter and sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar. Slice the bananas lengthwise into
halves. Place on top of the bread and sprinkle with the rum. Spread the
apricot preserves evenly over the bread and banana mixture. Ladle condensed
milk over the bread. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the egg yolks
and whole eggs. Heat the milk and remaining sugar until the mixture begins
to simmer. Pour the milk slowly into the eggs, stirring constantly until
well blended. Pour over the bread and banana mixture. Sprinkle with
cinnamon and nutmeg. Place a heavy platter or cutting board over the pan to
weigh down the mixture. Allow to sit for 15 minutes. Bake in the preheated
oven for 25-30 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean. From
