Breakfast Bread Pudding, Holden House, Colorado Springs
Breakfast Bread Pudding -
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hr 10 mins (includes the sauce), Yield: 6 – 8 Persons
1 loaf fresh or stale French bread
6 Eggs
2 cups Milk
½ cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Apple Pie Spice
1½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/3 cup Raisins
1/3 cup Slivered Almonds (slightly toasted)
1 cup chopped and diced Peaches (fresh or frozen)
2 peeled, cored and chopped Apples
1 stick /4 oz Butter
Vanilla Sauce:
1 stick /4 oz Butter
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup  Evaporated Milk
1 cup Sugar
Bread Pudding Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 F and spray 13×9 rectangle pan w/vegetable spray. Melt stick of butter in pan and set aside.
  • Tear bread into small (not tiny) pieces, into a large mixing bowl.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl add milk, eggs, and sugar; mix well.
  • Add vanilla and spice to egg and milk mixture; mix well. Pour egg mix over bread and mix with clean, gloved hands.
  • Add apples, peaches, raisins, and almonds; gently mix in with hands. (Tip: lightly dredge these ingredients in flour to help them “float” in the bread pudding)
  • Scoop the above mixture into pan with a slotted spoon and drizzle with the cooled, melted butter.
  • Bake for about 1 hour until golden brown.
Vanilla Sauce Instructions:
  • In a small saucepan melt butter, add sugar & evaporated milk.
  • Stir constantly and bring to a rolling boil; cook on medium heat for 3-10 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened (mixture scorches easily).
  • When thickened, removed from heat and then add the vanilla extract. (When added over high or constant heat, vanilla evaporates).
  • Serve warm/hot over bread pudding. As this mixture cools, it becomes too thick to pour. Serve in a small microwave safe glass pot and reheat as necessary.
