Here are all the Banana recipes from the magazine. I don't see a Bread Pudding in the list. Perhaps it's in one of the special cookbooks? I can't look until later tonight. Someone else will come along soon and help you out!

There's a Grilled Bananas Foster recipe in one of the Grilling books and an Island Bananas Foster recipe in one of the Weeknight Menus books, but neither of these resemble a bread pudding of any kind.

I'm wondering if it's the croissant bread pudding that Jeannette listed. I don't have that issue, so I can't check. Hopefully somebody else will be along to help. I checked all the special issues that I have, but I don't have them all.
Keep your mind wide open.

Issue 26 is from 2001 - the Croissant bread pudding is from a collection of New Orleans recipes. Doesn't seem to be a match.

Okay, so we've narrowed it down to the Holiday Menus 1 book. I don't have it. I'm sure someone here has it. It's just a matter of time, Chef.

BTW, welcome to our forum! I hope you'll visit our forum often and participate in our discussions. We LOVE talking about food and recipes! We'd love a review of the bread pudding recipe you are seeking.
Keep your mind wide open.
