We were given a very dry Banana Nut bread. Rather than put it out for the birds what can a person do? I was thinking maybe tear it apart and add some milk etc to goo it together and make a crust for a banana pie. Would that work or even be edible?

My brother was saying use it to make bread pudding. Would that work?
Thanks

Bread pudding is the first thing I thought of when I saw your thread. Or what about some French toast?

Yes, bread pudding was my first idea too. I don't see why it wouldn't work.

There is one i hadn't thought of. Surely there are many things to do with it.

First thought here was bread pudding. French toast was an excellent suggestion. Or just toast it and butter it and serve as toast.

I've never tried to make a crumb crust with it, but that should work. Slice it thin and dry it out until you can make crumbs out of it and use the graham cracker pie crust recipe. That would be good with either a banana or chocolate cream pie.

Or dice it and layer it into a trifle. Diced cake, sliced bananas, vanilla pudding, and whipped cream.

Years ago, I used to eat at a restaurant that had their own bakery. They used the leftover Danish to make bread pudding, and wow, was that ever good. Bread pudding out of banana bread sounds like a winner to me

Slice and toast it well until crispy, put a slice into a dessert bowl, douse liberally with banana liqueur, top with your favorite ice cream, finish off with a glob of whipped cream and enjoy!

A door stop was my first thought but on second thought check out Paula Deens French Toast recipe.

I second the bread pudding ... and maybe I'd add some more sliced bananas in with it to make it extra moist.

Besides French toast and bread pudding, use it as a base for other desserts. It can be a "crust" for mousse types of fillings. Cube it and layer it into a parfait.
