How to Make Yummiest Bread Pudding-Ever!

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut the crust off of the bread. If the bread is not quite stale; put the cubes into the 9x13 sprayed pan and place in oven while it is pre-heating to 350 degrees. This will dry it out a bit.
  2. Sprinkle with the orange flavored cranberries. ( if you have another flavor or choose another dried fruit...be my guest) Also, if you have only regular dried cranberries-you can use about 2 Tbsp. of grated orange rind. We just love the Trader Joes orange ones.
  3. While oven is heating, put eggs, whipping cream, milk, sugar, cinnamon, & vanilla in large mixing bowl and mix on med/high until well blended.
  4. Remove the bread cubes from the oven & add the berries and cubed cream cheese by tossing by hand.
  5. Pour the liquid mixture on top of the bread. Using a fork, tap all bread gently to cover it with liquid.
  6. Place pan in oven and bake approx. 40 minutes or until the mixture is set. (40 minutes did it with my elecric oven)
  7. Remove from oven & either serve hot with vanilla ice cream for dessert; or let it cool a bit and serve as is for breakfast- the cream cheese cubes seem to be quite hot-so be careful about eating it too soon.
