- Ready In:
- Preheat oven to 300.
- Slice french bread into half inch round croutons and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs and egg yolks.
- Whipe until well blended.
- In a large saucepan, combine whipping cream, milk, and sugar.
- Bring mixture to a low simmer, then add white chocolate.
- Whisk until chocolate is completely melted.
- Remove from heat and stir in whipped eggs.
- Blend thoroughly to keep eggs from scrambling.
- In a buttered 9 x 13 baking dish, place bread slices in 2-3 layers.
- Pour half the the cream mixture over the bread and allow it to soak up most of the mixture before adding the rest.
- Press the bread gently, allowing the cream mix to be evenly absorbed.
- Cover the dish and let it soak at last 5 hours prior to baking.
- Bake covered for 1 hour and then remove cover and bake another 45 minutes until top has browned.
- Note: This is best if chilled overnight, then cut into squares and reheated in individual portions in the microwave.
- Serve with caramel sauce.
Made this in two 8"x8" baking pans so that I could share all the nutrition (!!) with a neighbor couple who appreciate a homemade bread pudding! This was easy to whip together & the use of white chocolate was wonderful ~ Not just sinfully good, but SINFULLY GREAT! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I live in the Phoenix area where the sun always shines. I love to cook and garden. I am a "gadget freak" and seem to buy every cooking tool that comes on the market. Currently, I'm playing with pressure cooker cuisine. If I could take a month off, I'd go to Italy and go to 3-4 different cooking schools. My favorite cookbook is "The New Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute of America. The dog in the photo is Scout, who just happens to be the best dog in the world.
