Directions

  1. Prepare Banana Bread. Or, if frozen, thaw one loaf at room temperature about 1 hour. Cut bread into 1/2-inch cubes (should have about 6 cups). Place bread cubes in a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Add figs or dates; toss gently to mix. In a large mixing bowl beat together eggs, milk, sugar, melted margarine or butter, vanilla, and cardamom. Pour over bread mixture. Bake in a 325 degree F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly.
  2. To serve, spoon warm bread pudding into individual dessert dishes. Spoon warm Chocolate-Grand Marnier Sauce over pudding. Makes 12 servings.
