How To Make summer stone fruit bread pudding

  • 1
    Can do ahead of time: If the bread is not stale, cut it into cubes, place it on a large cookie sheet, and put it into a 200 degree F oven for 45 to 60 minutes until it’s dried.
  • 2
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. F. Combine the milk, half and half, vanilla extract, cinnamon, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and rum in a large saucepan over medium heat until the brown sugar is thoroughly dissolved. Whisk occasionally. Do not let the milk boil.
  • 3
    Put the cubed bread in a large mixing bowl. Slowly pour the milk mixture over the bread and gently fold it together to coat all of the bread.
  • 4
    Don't add all the milk mixture at once so it doesn't get too soggy. Pour most of it in, combine, and add more if needed.
  • 5
    Add the beaten eggs.
  • 6
    Fold in the diced fruit. Make sure all of the bread is coated.
  • 7
    Divide the mixture between the 6 compartments of a lightly greased large muffin tin or you can use a 9 x 9 baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes.
  • 8
    After 40 minutes, remove from the oven and sprinkle 1 tsp brown sugar over each serving. Return to the oven for 10 minutes or until it's done to your liking.
  • 9
    Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
