Ohana Bread Pudding with Bananas Foster Sauce

Well it’s no question that where I live in Vermont is freezing this time of year.  Everything is covered in a thick layer of snow and you can’t leave the house without freezing a nose hair or two. On an average morning, 10 degrees is on the warmer side. Needless to say, I’ve been dreaming of my favorite warm weather getaway A LOT lately, Disney World.  Yes I have the heart of a 7 year old and spend most of my days dreaming of the Magic Kingdom and Mickey. No Shame.

To keep warm, and feel like I’m back at my favorite Disney parks, I made a signature Disney World Resort dessert.  Ohana Bread Pudding with Bananas Foster Sauce.  This dessert comes from the Polynesian Resort and is a crowd favorite!

Embrace your inner Disney fanatic and try out this surprisingly simple recipe. And hey, even if you don’t like Disney ( which I totally wouldn’t understand why) you’d still love this snowy day dessert.  It’s sure to warm the soul.
