Hi everyone! My name is Angela and i’m excited to be a food contributor here at seven thirty three. At my blog, Handmade in the Heartland, i share recipes, crafts and DIY projects, parenting tips, home decor ideas, lots of dessert recipes and the occasional fashion post. I’d love for you to pop over and see my blog. I’m super excited about this bread pudding so lets get going…
I love a good dessert and this bread pudding has been in my recipe file for years and i keep pulling it out because it is so delicious. When i made it for this post i decided to make an additional sauce, there is this restaurant here in Kansas City that has incredible bread pudding and they make it with a bourbon sauce so i decided to try my hand at making one too. The sauce adds an extra layer of flavor that is so good, i highly recommend it.
Creme Caramel Bread Pudding
1 cup brown sugar
4 1/2 cups of bread sliced thick and then cubed (I used french bread)
6 large eggs
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Spread the brown sugar on the bottom of your casserole dish, this recipe is good in a square 8×8 or something similar, you can see i used a oval dish. Then place your cubed bread on top of that.
2. Make the custard by first mixing up the eggs, then add the cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix to combine. Let stand for 30 minutes, preheat the oven to 350.
3. Bake until set, brown on top, and a small knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let it cool slightly and serve with bourbon sauce (recipe below).
Bourbon Dessert Sauce
1/4 cup of butter (1/2 stick)
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons bourbon
In a heavy bottomed pan melt the butter over medium-low heat. Once melted add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until thickened, stirring or whisking often. It should get thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Take off heat and let cool slightly before topping your bread pudding with it.
This sauce would also be great to top ice cream or over a cheesecake. 🙂 Enjoy!
