-8 large ripe bananas
-2 tbs all purpose flour
-1 ½ loafs old bread (preferably wheat)
-4 tbs rum
-2 eggs
-1 ¼ cups sugar
-2 cups milk
-2 cups coconut milk
-4 tbs melted butter
-1 tbs vanilla
-1/4 cup raisins (optional)
-1/4 cup walnuts (optional)
-1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

*Slice bananas and mix with flour, 2 tbs rum, ¼ cup sugar, 2 tbs butter, raisins, nuts and cinnamon. Beat eggs with the remaining cup of sugar, add coconut milk, milk, vanilla, remaining butter, and rum. Slice bread into ½ inch thick slices. Grease an 8 inch cake ban pan. Quickly dip the bread slices in egg mixture and lay the slices into the bottom of pan to create the first “layer”. Add half of the bananas to a second layer, followed by another layer of bread, before finally topping it off with a layer of bananas. Bake at 350’F until golden, about 45 mins.

Your website is great, particularly with photo/visual image aid (giving an idea what it is)

I would very much like to this recipe, but I really can't get things really right.

It says "8 large ripe bananas" and "1 ½ loafs old bread". But you can't fit "8 large ripe bananas" and 1 ½ loafs old bread" in an 8 inch bun pan?
Is there maybe something wrong in the recipe?

Another thought that comes to mind: "2 tbs flour, 2 tbs rum, ¼ cup sugar, 2 tbs butter, raisins, nuts and cinnamon." Aren't the proportions a bit off here? Without having trying, it seems to end up with ONLY bananas if it is 8 large that should go in this mix! The picture seems much more creamy than that.

Do you mean small "Finger Bananas" perhaps?

I would really appreciate your help with this one, it looks delicious!

the bread will soak up the coconut milk making it more compact = will fit into the mould and will come out "creamy" in the finished product.

"2 tbs flour, 2 tbs rum, ¼ cup sugar, 2 tbs butter, raisins, nuts and cinnamon" is what you add to the bananas to enhance its flavor...there's nothing wrong with the recipe...that's just the way it is...there's supposed to be a lot of bananas...
