Adding just a little lemon juice not only keeps the bananas from turning dark but it also adds a zesty flavour to this creamy casserole

Instructions

  1. Mist a small baking dish with cooking spray and arrange the bread quarters to line the sides and bottom in a single layer.
  2. Place the milk, syrup, eggs, soft cheese, 2 bananas, rum, vanilla, lemon juice, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a blender and blitz until smooth. Slowly pour the mixture over the bread, making sure it is completely submerged. Cover with foil and chill for 30 minutes (or overnight).
