I love bread pudding because there are so many different flavor combinations. I like my bread pudding with a little crunch on top crust and a soft creamy inside. The key to a great bread pudding is to have a soft center without the bread pieces turning into one big pile of mush. This Butterscotch Pecan Bread Pudding has a nice sweet and nutty flavor from both the butterscotch chips, Dixie Crystals butterscotch sauce and pecans.
Bread pudding is definitely a comfort food of the pastry world. I wasn’t really into bread pudding until going to culinary school. We made some with leftover bread from our bread class and it was love at first bite. Since then I have been creating bread puddings year-round.
They can really be made for every season – light, fruity and served with ice cream for the Spring and Summer; apple, pumpkin and holiday-spiced flavors for Fall and Winter! One of my recent favorites is my Cherry Chocolate Chip Almond Bread Pudding with Amaretto Whipped Cream. I have also made Pumpkin Bread Pudding and Apple Pie Bread Pudding too.
I also have to admit that I eat bread pudding throughout the day, and not just for dessert. Sometimes I have a small bite for a snack, and it is really good in the morning with a cup of coffee – it’s basically like a baked French toast anyway! This bread pudding can even be made ahead of time and reheated in a low oven. We will be enjoying it on New Year’s Eve morning, while prepping for our annual New Year’s party. Enjoy!
Until next time,
