What to do with leftover banana bread?

Make Banana Bread Pudding! If you don't have it leftover, maybe you should just make banana bread for this - cause it's so good! I made this loaf a couple months ago and froze it because I hadn't unpacked my cookbooks yet and was thinking ahead for this recipe. The rum sauce is a must.

Banana Bread Pudding serves 6-8

2 cups milk
1 cup cream
1/3 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
1 whole egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
pinch salt
about 6 or 7 slices of banana bread (homemade) note: if using my recipe don't use the chocolate chips or coconut - although on second thought the chocolate chips would be amazing!
2 bananas cut into slices

Butter a large baking dish. Make the custard by whipping all the ingredients together up to the banana bread. Cut the banana bread slices into finger sized pieces and place in one row on bottom of pan, then add a layer of banana slices, then another layer of bread and another layer of bananas and then with the last bread piece chop into cubes and sprinkle over the top. Pour over the custard and let sit about 30 min to soak it all in. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 min covered. Uncover and bake an additional 15 min to crisp up the top. For the sauce: boil 4 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1/2 cup rum and 2 tablespoons water together whisking until it's thickened a little. Serve the pudding with sauce poured on top. Has banana bread ever tasted better???
