Bread Pudding With Caramel Sauce

Bread Pudding

Whole Foods sells an awesome Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce.  It’s one of the items in their hot bar.  It sells for around $7 or $8 a pound, and this stuff is pretty heavy.  My family loves this pudding and we usually take home a few pounds when ever we shop there.

Bread pudding is pretty basic, it’s just bread, milk, eggs, and sugar.  I decided I’d try my hand at making a bread pudding similar to Whole Food’s.  I’d also serve it with caramel sauce just like they do.  Luckily I hit it on the first try!  My family loves it, they say it’s even better than Whole Foods’.

You can serve bread pudding warm or cold; with or without the caramel sauce; and of course with a scoop of ice cream.  It’s one of my favorite comfort foods!

Here’s my recipe for bread pudding and caramel sauce.  It gives 12 generous servings.

Pudding:

12 cups baguette cubesI use day old baguettes that come on sale at the end of the day

7 cups whole milk

9 eggs

1 tbls. vanilla

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

  1. Place cubes in buttered 9″ x 13″ baking pan
  2. Beat eggs, mix in milk and brown sugar
  3. Stir in vanilla and cinnamon
  4. Pour milk mixture over cubes
  5. Bake in 350 degree oven 1 1/2 hours or until tester comes out clean and pudding is set

You can serve warm or cold, with or without caramel sauce.

 Caramel Sauce:

Makes 4 cups

2 sticks butter

2 cups brown sugar

2 cups heavy cream

Melt butter in sauce pan.  Add sugar and cream.  Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves and sauce thickens.  Do no bring to a boil.  Stir to keep sides sugar from forming crystals on the side of the pan.

This Caramel Sauce can be used to top bread pudding, ice cream, brownies, etc.  I usually make a batch and just store in my refrigerator.  It keeps for about a month, just stir if the butter separates.

It gets a grainy texture if stored longer.
