Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

This is from the's cookbook "Dinner Tonight." I'm not usually a fan of bread pudding, but this is amazing! It was easy enough for a quick family dessert but nice enough for company.

4 eggs
2 cups milk
1 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
4 cups cubed French bread (this equals about 2/3 of a loaf)
2 bananas, sliced
1 cup (or more!) semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a loaf pan.

In a large mixing bowl, mix eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in bread cubes, bananas and chocolate chips; let stand 5 minutes for bread to soak. Pour into loaf pan.

Line a roasting pan with a kitchen towel. Place loaf pan on towel and place roasting pan on oven rack. Fill roasting pan with as much water as it will hold.

Bake for one hour or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm.
