Bananas Foster and bread pudding are two of the most popular desserts in New Orleans. So in honor of the over-the-top nature of Mardi Gras, which takes place, Tuesday, we took a more-is-better approach and combine them into one.

We topped a simple baked banana-pecan bread pudding with a classic hard sauce – including a healthy dose of bourbon, of course – which becomes a gooey icing that melts into the dessert and hardens as it cools. If that’s not your style, the dessert would be equally delicious topped with a scoop of butter pecan ice cream. Or both.
