Banana bread pudding with caramel sauce

My new favorite thing.

Caramel sauce
Stir together in a small saucepan:

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Let it cook over medium heat, not stirring, until it's deep amber colored. Remove from heat and stir in:

1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup milk

Keep in a jar in the fridge and eat on ice cream, apple slices, etc.

Banana bread pudding
This is bread pudding with bananas, not pudding made from banana bread. In a greased 9x9 pan, stir together:

2 mashed bananas
2 cups bread crumbs (I used a large bagel cut into chunks)
3 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
dash salt
enough milk to cover most of the bread
a drizzle of the caramel sauce - as much as you want

Bake at 350 until it's not too gloppy anymore . . . 30 - 45 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream and more caramel sauce.
