Spiced Rum Caramel Sauce
  • 3/4 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • 6 Tablespoons cream
  • 1/4 Cup rum, preferably dark
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roast bananas in skins for 15 minutes. Allow to cool, then peel bananas.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, cream, milk and sugar. Add bananas, white chocolate chips and banana liqueur, mashing bananas to incorporate them (there should still be some bits of banana). Add diced bread and toss to combine. The mixture should be very moist. Refrigerate mixture overnight.
  3. Preheat oven again to 375 degrees.
  4. Grease 2 (8- by 8-inch) baking dishes (a 9- by 13-inch dish will work, but you may have to pack the mixture). Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 5 minutes.
  5. Serve warm with Spiced Rum Caramel Sauce.
