Ingredients

  • 3

    cups cubed cinnamon bread

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    egg yolk

  • 1 1/4

    teaspoons vanilla

  • 1

    cup of half and half

  • 1/2

    cup sugar

  • 1/4

    cup brown sugar

  • 1/4

    teaspoon cinnamon

  • For the topping:

  • 1/4

    stick unsalted butter (room temperature)

  • 1/4

    cup brown sugar

Directions

1. If you’re using fresh bread, the night before you plan on making the bread pudding, prepare about three cups of cubed bread and allow to sit out overnight, so that the bread will become stale. 2. When you are ready to start making the pudding, preheat the oven to 350°F, and prepare your ceramic baking pan by spreading a small pat of butter along all the surface of the pan. An easy way to do this is by using the butter wrapper. 3. Place the stale bread cubes in the pan. 4. In a large bowl, crack 2 eggs, and separate a third so that you only add the yolk. 5. Add the half and half, vanilla, cinnamon, regular sugar, and brown sugar into the bowl containing the eggs, then whisk until you have a creamy, frothy, yellowish mixture. 6. Carefully pour the liquid mixture over the bread cubes in the pan, making sure to evenly soak all of the bread pieces. Use a spatula to press down on the cubes to make sure they are all thoroughly soaked. 7. Allow to sit and soak for ten minutes. (This is the perfect time to make your topping!) 8. To make your topping, chop up the softened butter into smaller pieces, then place in a food processor with the brown sugar. Blend until you get a consistent, smooth, butter-sugar paste. 9. After the ten minutes are up, place the topping all over the top of the pan. 10. Bake for 40 minutes. When the bread pudding is ready, the center should be set, and not jiggly.
