Directions

  1. Generously butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange the bread slices in the dish so they are packed in a little bit tight. In a medium bowl, whisk together the 4 eggs, milk, white sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Pour the liquid over the bread, and let it sit for an hour in the refrigerator. Press down the top with a spatula occasionally to help the bread absorb the liquid. After about 30 minutes, sprinkle the berries over the pudding, and press them down inside a bit to distribute.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake the bread pudding for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden, and the middle is firm. While the pudding is baking, make the brown sugar sauce.
  3. Melt the unsalted butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar, water, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and whisk in the egg. Return to the burner, and cook stirring constantly until thickened, about 1 minute. Serve hot over the hot bread pudding.

My wife and I had 10 couples over for desert on New Years Eve. We decided we wanted to make this recipe after reviewing it.. are we glad we did. All I can say is this, they kept going back to the server for more. I made a double batch and by the end of the evening it was gone. Thank you Jeannie for a great desert recipe; it is very easy to make and extremely tasty. It is being passed on to all of our family members by request.

Loved the fruit in it but be sure to tuck them into the slices of bread or they get burned. I'd also cover it with foil next time so that the tops of the bread pieces don't get burnt.

Tonight, I made three bread pudding recipes (I had alot of left over hot dog and hamburger buns after a cookout). This recipes wins hands down over Grandmother's Bread Pudding and Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce III. The bread pudding alone is very flavorful. The addition of the sauce makes a great recipe even more decadent. I only made a couple of changes: I used fresh strawberries and a cup of frozen mixed berries (blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries). I also substituted buttermilk and heavy cream for about 3 of the 6 cups of the whole milk--I needed to use these items before they went bad. Update: I sent my husband with a batch to take to work and I took one to my place of employment. We both received comments stating that this was the best bread pudding EVER! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
