When with every mouthful you go mmmmm, you know you have a winner! Rich, creamy, decadent. I made half the recipe in an 8x8x2 square pan which, when cut, gave me 9 generous pieces. I used frozen raspberries and my sauce was on the thin side, I believe fresh berries would be better suited. Made for 'New Kids on the Block" a tag game.
Made this as an alternative to a cake for my father's birthday party. It was a huge success except maybe I should have made two. My recommendations are to use evaporated milk instead of regular milk. Also, I would make more sauce than this recipe suggests. I ended up serving in small plastic cocktail cups with fresh raspberries on top. DELICIOUS!!
This recipe is delicious! It did not turn out exactly like Nordstrom Bistro but it was very close. Be sure to make sure all of the liquid is absorbed from the center before attempting to cut. I also used frozen rasberries for the sauce and recommend using a blender and then straining out the seeds which makes the sauce thicker. I also garnished with homeade whipped cream and fresh rasberries like they serve at Nordstroms. I think it may brown better and get crustier if I would have used a small kitchen torch.
I just made this for a friends birthday party to very rave reviews! Most people could not believe that it was not the actual bread pudding from Nordstrom. I only changed some minor things for the recipe. I used fat free half and half in place of the milk and I cut the pieces according to the actual recipe on the nordstrom website. They cut the pieces in rectangles and then cut the rectangles diagonally into triangles. These are then laid on their side on the baking pan for the remaining steps. I wanted to follow this closely for the first time. Next time I would like to try cutting the fat by using more fat free half and half and using liquid eggs to replace some of the eggs in this recipe. All in all it is extremely decadent and yummy though a bit time consuming.
THIS IS A REALLY OUTSTANDING BREAD PUDDING, & the recipe, a keeper, for sure! I shared half of it with a neighbor couple & they were as happy with it as were we! I followed the recipe right on down & couldn't have asked for a nicer dessert treat! Thanks so much! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef]
