Banana Choc Pudding

Just because sometimes we all need a little sweet treat in our lives....

Banana-Choc Pudding
You'll need:
400g loaf of wholemeal bread (I used half an unsliced 800g loaf)
400ml lite coconut cream
1 1/2 cups soymilk
2 Tablespoons egg replacer
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 overripe bananas
100g dark chocolate (I used Lindt 70%)

In a large bowl, mix together the coconut cream, soymilk, egg replacer, brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon.
Tear the bread into bite-size pieces and place in the bowl of the cream/milk mixture. Press down gently to encourage the bread to soak up the liquid. 

Mash the bananas in another bowl. Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe dish on 50% power. Once completely melted stir chocolate through the mashed bananas. 
Using a lined 20cm round cake tin, pour half the saoked bread into the bottom of the tin and press down gently.

Pour the banana/chocolate mixture over the top and then pour the remainder of the bread mixture on top and make sure it completely covers the banana/chocolate.

Place in a preheated 180C oven for 40 minutes.
Allow to cool before turning out onto a plate. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Slice and serve.

  1. Have you tried The Vegg yet? The Vegan Egg? Wondered how it would work in something like this???

    1. No I haven't tried the Vegg, although I have heard of it. To be honest I'm not even sure if we can get it here. I don't use egg replacer too often - mainly flax in baking and tofu in savoury dishes!

  2. I am sure The Vegg Baking Mix would work.

    1. Makes sense for it to work if it just whisks up like regular egg replacer :-)

  4. Hi Sandy,
    I adore healthy chocolate desserts so this recipe for banana chocolate pudding is just what my taste buds ordered! When I was growing up my mom used to make bread pudding so this brings back lots of fond memories. Your pudding looks so moist and delicious, I can't wait to try it.
