I made all this Banana Bread the other day. It had been about a week and the second loaf had barely been touched. It eyed me from afar, in the depths of the over crowded fridge. In that moment, i was inspired to make it into something new.

My roomy and I headed over to the grocery store to pick up supplies. As we wandered up and down the isles, i spotted, there on the half price shelf, a container of brownies and 3 iced cinnamon buns. I decided then, that these had to be involved in the Bread Pudding!! How could I not try and top my previous version.
