Vierra's Sweetbread Banana Pudding
Vierra's sweetbread out of Waimea is only sold as fundraisers. They sell sweet bread and cinnamon bread with white glaze. It must be good because people came up to us at our pickup site to try and buy loaves. We ended up selling loaves from the no shows.
We can't do our normal butter fried sweetbread (we already did that with last month's malasadas), so modified the Banana Caramel Bread Pudding from Choosing Raw.
4 large, ripe bananas (the riper the better)
1 cup date paste, packed
3/4 cup nut milk
3 tsp. vanilla extract
4 tsp. cinnamon
1 round of Vierra's sweetbread cut into cubes
10 ramekins for baking
Preheat oven to 375. Place bread cubes in a large bowl.
Blend bananas, date paste, milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon until smooth.
Pour over bread and mix well.
Divide the soaked bread evenly into 8 ramekins. Pour 2T. of coconut milk over the top of each.
