This Spiced Banana Bread Pudding with Raisins recipe—adapted from The New Moosewood Cookbook— is a satisfying, delightfully spiced desert that skips the saturated fat and cholesterol and uses skim milk instead. The best part is, you don't even notice its absence! If it's butter you crave though, include this sinfully delicious rum sauce atop your pudding for a seriously mmmmmm finale. —KvellintheKitchen
