Hi everyone! Welcome to Cooking Up Lovel
where we believe sharing homemade food spreads joy and touches lives. We’ll
teach you how to make delicious food you’ll be proud to share with friends and
family! On today’s show, we’re making easy bread pudding and transforming
leftover bread into a decadent dessert that also makes a great brunch dish and
breakfast casserole. Our family loves bread pudding and this recipe uses
simple ingredients to create a delicious treat 😀 Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
First we’ll crack 3 eggs and whisk thoroughly. I’ve listed the recipe in the
description. Add 1 and 1/2 cups of heavy whipping cream and whisk to combine. Add
3/4 cups of brown sugar and stir. The brown sugar will give this additional
flavors of toffee and malt. Then add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 teaspoon of
cinnamon and stir. This is one of those recipes that you can really make your
own, there are endless possibilities to make changes and personalize it adding
things like walnuts, raisins, chocolate chips or even caramel! I’m using a 1/2
loaf of French bread that’s a day or two old, which will really soak up all of the
rich custard we’ve just made. Because the crust on this is a little crunchy – you
can see how it crumbles when I slice into it – I’m going to shave off the crust
and save it for another use, and I’ll quickly show you that while the bread
pudding is in the oven. If you love to entertain, check out our playlists for
potluck favorites and appetizer recipes! Once the crust is cut off, slice the loaf
into thick slices then cut the slices into about two inch cubes. And just a
quick thank you for the comments and the likes. When you watch and comment on our
videos, it helps other people find them and we really appreciate your help 🙏 ❤️ Prepare the baking dish with olive oil
spray or butter and add the cubed bread to the dish. Pour the custard mixture over the bread.
I like to ladel it over to spread it more evenly. This is a great recipe to
make as a family. I remember my dad making bread pudding and mixing up a big
bowl of custard and all the kids tearing up the pieces of bread ❤️ Press down on any pieces that are
sticking up. Let the dish sit for about five minutes so the bread can soak up
the custard. Now we’re going to bake the bread pudding for 30 minutes. While the
bread pudding is baking, I’m taking the crust we cut off the French bread and
using a nutribullet to pulse it into homemade bread crumbs, about the size of
rice grains. Place into an airtight bag or container and store in the
refrigerator or freezer and you’ll have fresh preservative free bread crumbs
for the next time you need them! Melt 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter in the
microwave. Remove the dish from the oven and drizzle the butter over the top of
the pudding, then return the dish to the oven and bake for about 5 to 10 more
minutes until the custard is set but still a little wobbly and the edges of
the bread have browned. I’m serving this with a dollop of homemade whipped cream
and a drizzle of maple syrup, and it’s also great served as a parfait for
brunch or dessert, layering the bread pudding with whipped cream and topping
with maple syrup. Easy bread pudding! This is so fluffy and such a rich flavorful
pudding with a buttery crusty top 😊 Remember to subscribe before you leave
