Best Ever Bread Pudding

543

Hi guys!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day.  I’m definitely wearing green.  It’s my favorite color!

For St. Patrick’s Day, we are having some family and my boyfriend over for some good food and graduation planning!  Crazy, it’s just a few months away!

Yesterday, I had some extra time so I went down to the grocery store and asked the bakery for some day old bread.  Then I got to work.

This is my “signature recipe” and has been since I was about 11 or 12.  It’s so good and my parents absolutely love it.  It has been changed over the years so feel free to adapt!  It’s the perfect recipe to do so. 

Yummm.

Ingredients:

5-5 1/2 c. day old French bread, cubed

1/4 c. butter, melted

3 eggs

2 c. whole milk

1/2 c. white sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. allspice

Pinch ground ginger

1/4 tsp. salt

2 Tbs. brown sugar

4 Tbs. butter, cubed

2 Tbs. sugar

1 Tbs. cornstarch

Serve warm sauce over warm bread pudding.  Delicious!

You could add fruit, pecans (which would be awesome!), anything!

Let me know what you guys think.

Stay Serendipitous!
