Jamie Oliver's Bailey's & Banana Bread & Butter Pudding

Quentin and I are heading to Waveland on Friday afternoon for their annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and for my mother's birthday (March 10). I have been searching for something different for her birthday celebration, and I think I have definitely found it...Bailey's & Banana Bread & Butter Pudding. How could that possibly be bad? The recipe is from Jamie Oliver. (I will have to report on its success when I get back next week.)

5 bananas, sliced lengthwise into thin strips
4 tablespoons toasted, slivered almonds
Confectioners sugar to dust

Flatten each slice of bread as much as possible

Butter each piece thinly with softened butter

Cut pieces in half and set asideIn bowl whisk sugar, vanilla, eggs until pale and fluffy
