Does anyone have any ideas or recipes for leftover (slightly stale) banana loaf? Thanks.

My husband likes for me to beat an egg and little milk and roll yesterdays biscuits in it, then cook it on each side in a skillet and he dips it in syrup. Might be good with banana loaf.
It would be good in a bread pudding. Google for recipes. Slice it and put it in the toaster--it probably would taste good that way. Slice it, spread each side with butter and fry it in a skillet.
I've never heard of anyone having leftover stale banana bread. It's too yummy to keep that long!
You can save a loaf of stale bread or muffins. Just wrap a piece in a damp paper towel or wash cloth & microwave it for 20 or 30 seconds & it'll taste fresh & moist again. This works especially nicely with cornbread, banana bread & other quick-breads & muffins.
I also like the idea of making "French Toast" with it!. Fry in a skillet sprayed with Pam, then spread on cream-cheese!
When our bread products go to stale, I toss them in a paper bag and take them to the park to feed the ducks. They love it.
Cut it in small cubes. Make a batch of cooked pudding, butterscotch, vanilla even chocolate would be good. Layer it with jam, pie filling or fresh sliced fruit and the banana bread cubes to make a twist on a trifle.
One recipe my daughter uses at her restaurant is Banana Bread French toast. Make the egg/milk mixture to dip the slices in and cook on a frying surface, turning to brown both sides. Serve with fresh banana slices and powder sugar dusted over the top.
Heat up a cup or two of frozen berries in the microwave and stir in a couple of spoonfuls of sugar (if you want it). Add a couple of spoonfuls of heavy whipping cream and serve over toasted banana bread spread with melted butter.
OR....cut up a couple of bananas into a bowl, sprinkle with brown sugar and coconut and a pat of butter, cook in microwave a couple of minutes (until bananas are softened) and pour over toasted banana bread spread with melted butter.
OR...toast thin slices and serve with a spoonful of peanut butter (I think Elvis would have liked this).
Or toast thin slices and top with booked bacon.
