Debbie's Story

Although, there are never any leftovers with this dessert, it is wonderful when served warm or cold. I use extra white Chocolate to dip fresh strawberries and serve my bread pudding with a dipped strawberry on the side. It makes this simple dessert look quite elegant.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Tear the bread into small pieces into a large bowl. Cover with paper towel or dish towel and allow to sit for 8-12 hours ahead of time (or overnight) to dry out.
2
For the Bread Pudding, preheat the oven to 350F.
3
In a medium bowl, mix lightly beaten eggs, sugar, half and half or cream, ground cinnamon and vanilla. Beat slowly until smooth.
4
Melt butter in the microwave and beat it slowly into the sugar mixture.Pour this mixture over the bread pieces and stir gently to coat all the bread pieces.
5
Pour mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 13 pan and press down gently to get rid of air pockets.
6
Bake for 45 minutes at 350F or until lightly golden. Do not overbake.
7
For the White Chocolate Sauce, do NOT make the chocolate sauce until the bread pudding is out of the oven because it will get too hard.
8
Put chocolate pieces and butter pieces into a microwave safe bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 30 seconds until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
9
Gradually add the confectioner’s sugar and beat until smooth.
10
Add water a bit at a time until the chocolate mixture is smooth and easy to pour.
11
Pour the chocolate sauce evenly over the top of the baked bread pudding.
