- 1 cup powdered sugar

- 2 large bananas or 4 small bananas

- 2 eggs

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

- Optional: Pinch of salt

- Optional: chocolate chips for garnish


1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) and grease a baking dish with butter.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the powdered sugar and softened butter. Use a hand mixer or electric mixer to beat them together until creamy and well combined.

3. Peel the bananas and mash them thoroughly until smooth. Add the mashed bananas to the sugar-butter mixture and mix well.

4. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and vanilla extract together. Then add this mixture to the banana mixture and mix until everything is fully incorporated.

5. Gradually add the flour and a pinch of salt to the wet mixture, stirring continuously until you get a smooth batter. Be careful not to overmix.

6. If desired, fold in chocolate chips into the batter for added flavor and texture.

7. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly.

8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

9. Once baked, remove the pudding from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.

Important Notes:

- Make sure the butter is at room temperature for easier mixing.

- Use ripe bananas for the best flavor and texture in the pudding.

- Adjust the amount of sugar according to your preference for sweetness.

- Do not overmix the batter to avoid a dense texture in the pudding.

- Adding chocolate chips is optional but enhances the taste of the pudding.

- Serve the banana bread pudding warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of caramel sauce for a delicious treat.
