1 1/2 cups
heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped away
French baguettes, cut into 2-inch slices
I hate to be the first rater because I wasn't able it follow the recipe as written. I just didn't have all the ingredients. But this recipe served as a fabulous base for a wonderful sweet/tart bread pudding. The lemon zest added great flavor to the pudding- don't leave it out. Here are the changes that I made: 3 1/2 cup milk, 1 cup sour cream instead of whipping cream, brown sugar instead of white, vanilla extract instead of bean, sliced almonds instead of raisins, 2 cups cranberries- and could have had more really, leftover sliced potato and whole wheat breads instead of baguettes. I baked the whole shebang in a 13 x 9 inch glass pan- I am not sure if it all would gave fit in a pie plate.
I used cranberry bread and craisins and this was fabulous!!! I have changed up the bread and the raisins/craisins and everytime it is fantastic!!!
I made this recipe with some leftover banana bread. I cubed it and ended up with about 4-5 cups. I used vanilla extract in place of the bean, dates in place of raisins, brown sugar vs the white, and I used about half more cinnamon and 2 cups total cranberries. Put it all in a 9x13 pan. I also lowered the oven temperature to 325 degrees and cooked it about 5-10 minutes longer. The 350 just seemed a bit too extreme for a custardy type dish and didn't want to fry the cranberries since they float to the top. Turned out great! The cranberries add a festiveness in color, plus were a nice tart to offset the sweet bread.
I was looking for a bread pudding recipe that called for cranberries. I made this with a couple of substitutions. It is in the oven right now and I will serve this as dessert for Sunday dinner. I have a feeling it is going to be very good.
I will let all of you know how it turns out.
I made this for a Thanksgiving dessert. Great hit with the family! Easy to make with a taste of elegance. I will be making this again.
