Yesterday I made a really healthy recipe, but today I’m on the very opposite end of the spectrum. In my latest cooking video, I’m making Pecan Pie Bread Pudding:
1 loaf day old french bread
2.5 cups milk
1 cup half & half
4 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cube bread and lightly toast in the oven for approximately 7 minutes. Let them cool and then add to a large mixing bowl.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, half & half, sugars, salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Add pecans and mix thoroughly. Pour the mixture over the toasted bread and let it soak for at least 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a greased 8×8 baking dish and sprinkle with some more chopped pecans. Place pan on a cookie sheet so any boil over is caught. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until center is slightly wiggly.
Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
Enjoy! Also, if you want to work off this indulgence, make sure you enter my giveaway for a free Flywheel Class on Facebook and Instagram!
