  • Make sure to leave about 1 inch from the edges and bottom of the bread.

For the Butter:

  • In a mixing bowl of ⅓ cup of softened unsalted butter, add in ¼ cup of granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. And whisk until homogeneous.
  • Spread the butter mixture inside of the bricks and also spread on all the small cubes.

Now for the Baking Part:

  • Preheat oven to 360 degrees F. (180C.), and put the bread for about 8 minutes, or until golden brown.

Assemble and Garnish:

  • Fill the inside of the brick with bottom using bread cubes and banana slices (you can add any fruit of your choice).
  • Drizzle the honey on top. And place the hollow brick over the first brick, twisting slightly. And again fill it with bread cubes and fruit slices.
  • Place 2-3 scoops of ice cream on top. And drizzle honey all over. And don’t forget to serve with a steak knife or a small bread knife.

Notes

1.) You need a loaf of un-sliced bread that’s at least five inches long. Cut that in half, then make incisions across each side one inch from the center. In one side, preferably the one with the bottom crust, don’t go all the way through, but stop about an inch from the bottom.
2.)  In order to get the inside out of the other loaf, start at an inch from the bottom, slicing the bread horizontally one inch from each side, leaving the bottom on but allowing you to pull the square of bread from the center, leaving a square “container.”
