We are all missing Disney parks a little more this year. While we are all at home wishing we were spending the holidays at Disney, we decided to recreate some famous Disney recipes at home.
Today, we are featuring the delish Banana Bread Pudding from Boma at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! If you haven’t tried this bread pudding, you don’t know what you’re missing. Take a look at the recipe below and share your results with us on Instagram with the #themeparkprofessor
