Ingredients

  • 8 buttermilk bread slices, crusts removed
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 bananas, thinly sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups whipping cream

Peanut Butter Streusel Topping

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped salted peanuts

Dark Caramel Sauce

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Make 4 peanut butter and banana sandwiches by spreading each piece of bread with peanut butter, topping half of slices with banana slices, and placing other 4 slices peanut butter side down on top of bananas. Cut into 1 inch pieces.
  • Divide sandwich pieces between 8 greased ramekins (8-ounce).
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and sugars. Then whisk in whipping cream.
  • Slowly pour mixture into the ramekins, dividing it evenly between them.
  • Make streusel topping. In a small bowl, mix together flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter and peanut butter. Stir in peanuts.
  • Sprinkle streusel topping on top of bread puddings. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and let bread puddings sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Remove plastic wrap and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.
  • Make Caramel Sauce. Cook sugar in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until sugar caramelizes, swirling pan occasionally.
  • Stir in whipping cream. Mixture will bubble and harden. Cook, stirring continuously, until mixture melts and begins to boil, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour sauce in a bowl, mix in vanilla and salt, and let cool 15 minutes.

Notes

I used Homemade Buttermilk Bread and did not cut the crust off.
