This version of bread pudding with amaretto sauce has become our household favorite. By adding the bananas and soaking the bread in the milk/egg mixture, the final result becomes a moist and delicious pudding. Additionally, by soaking the raisins they become a plump and juicy addition. I hope this becomes a favorite in your home, like it is in ours.
