How to Make Ultimate Tart Cherry Bread Pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350, grease a casserole dish
  2. Toss the cubed bread with the cinnamon, pecans and cherries and place in casserole dish.
  3. Mix the eggs, milk, sugar, salt and vanilla well with a whisk.
  4. Pour over the bread mixture and let it sit to absorb for an hour.
  5. Bake until set, about an hour. This will depend on the depth of your dish, I like to use a deep dish. If you use a shallow dish check it after 45 minutes.
  6. For the sauce:
  7. Mix the flour and sugar in a small saucepan.
  8. Add the juice and water.
  9. Cook over medium heat until thickened. Stir frequently.
  10. Set aside to cool.
  11. Serve topped with the sauce and whipped cream.
