Bread Pudding with Berries

Ok - I know it's been forever! I've been Photoshop-less this last month (and consequently much more productive!) - after I wiped my hard drive to try to solve some stalling problems with my computer, and naturally, lost my serial number for my CS4. I'll be getting a copy of the new CS5 soon (YAY!) - and I will be back with the real deal ASAP!

But, for now... this one just couldn't wait. I have never really liked bread pudding until I took a bite of this. My friend Lindsey made this one day, and I had a bite of reheated leftovers - it was incredible! Fresh from the oven... no words to describe!

So, this is her fabulous recipe, with just a few of my own tweaks... Thanks Linds!


Bread Pudding with Berries

Ingredients:

1 loaf French bread, cubed
2 cups frozen berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries... any kind or combo, just not strawberries!)

Egg Mixture:
4 eggs
2 3/4 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla

1/4 cup sugar


Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
2. Place half of bread cubes in a greased 9x13-inch pan, top with frozen berries, then the rest of the bread cubes.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, sugar, butter, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Pour over bread cubes. Press bread down with a wooden spoon to make sure each piece absorbs the egg mixture. Let sit for at least 20 minutes, up to overnight to absorb. (If leaving to sit for more then 20 minutes, make sure to refrigerate!)
4. Bake covered, for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle 1/4 cup of sugar on top. Return to oven to bake, uncovered, for 30 more minutes.
5. Serve warm, with each serving topped with vanilla sauce.

Vanilla Sauce

Ingredients:
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions:

1. Mix all vanilla sauce ingredients, except vanilla, together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla.

  1. Once again, Leisha tried to kill me with one of her AMAZING desserts (which she piled on my plate and tried to pass off as "breakfast" in an attempt to make it sound more healthy). Can I just say, this is THE BEST bread pudding I've ever had.
