Expert Tips

You can use 6 cups of any of your favorite kinds of bread in place of the French baguette.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease an 8 inch square pan with non-stick spray.
  • 2 Cut the French baguette in 2 inch cubes and arrange pieces in the bottom of the pan. Pour the melted butter over the top of the bread. Add the banana slices and chopped walnuts, gently stirring to distribute the ingredients evenly in the pan.
  • 3 Blend the milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour the preparation in the pan, pressing down on the bread gently so that it absorbs the milk mix.
  • 4 Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the capirotada has set and turned golden brown.
  • 5 Remove from the oven and spread cajeta over the top.
  • 6 Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or scoop of vanilla ice cream (optional). Enjoy!

Without a doubt, my favorite Lenten dessert is capirotada (a version of bread pudding). Each week during Lent I prepare a different version of this recipe, and each person in my family has their favorite rendition. My kids love this banana capirotada, which tastes a lot like homemade banana and walnut bread. If you’re a fan of treats with banana, you’ll love this recipe even more because you can serve it as a dessert or for breakfast on special days.
