Cranberry Apple Pecan Bread Pudding With Vanilla Cream Sauce

Cranberry Apple Pecan Bread Pudding With Vanilla Cream Sauce created by 2Bleu

This makes a nice breakfast/brunch dish. The bread pudding itself is not overly sweet, but vanilla cream sauce adds a nice richness. From Morning Glories by Donna Leahy.

ingredients

directions

  • Pudding:.
  • in a medium bowl, toss sliced apples with lemon juice and set aside.
  • in a large bowl, beat the eggs till frothy and light in color. Add the sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon and beat till smooth.
  • Stir in the butter, half and half and brandy.
  • Toss the apples, cranberries, pecans with the bread cubes.
  • Place the bread mixture in a greased 9x5 loaf pan (or individual custard cups). Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread. Cover with foil and weigh down with a bag of rice or dried beans to encourage the bread to absorb the liquid. Refrigerate for 30-60 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325. Remove the foil and weights and place the pudding in a larger pan with 1 inch of hot water. Bake for 55 minutes or till set.
  • Increase oven temperature to 425 and bake 10 minutes more, till lightly browned. Serve warm with room temperature sauce.
  • Vanilla Cream Sauce:.
  • Combine milk (or cream) with flour and sugar in a saucepan. Add butter. Heat over medium high heat till it bubbles, stirring. Continue to heat gently till thickened. Stir in vanilla.

    I used a pureed fruit sauce instead of apples and banana liquor rather than brandy. I also let the pudding soak overnight to let ingredients blend. I like proportion of wet to dry ingredients in this recipe. Most bread pudding/strata recipes call for too much liquid, in my opinion.

    Had overnight company & this recipe made for a very nice-&-tasty late breakfast! All 4 of us were in agreement: It couldn't have been better! Followed the recipe & opted for milk over the half-and-half, although another time, who knows! Thanks for sharing the makings of a wonderfully tasty meal!

    Yummy Valentine's breakfast! I actually set it in the fridge overnight. I used half and half in the pudding and skim milk in the cream sauce. The cranberries gave some pucker factor to the dish. I used apple juice in place of the brandy and had some French bread. I might try brioche as suggested next time or challah. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
