Ingredients

  • 5 cups cubed cinnamon rolls without icing, cinnamon-swirl bread, brioche, banana bread* or sweet bread
  • 4 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream**
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half or light cream
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • Amaretto Sauce (see recipe below) or warm maple syrup

Directions

  1. Spread the bread cubes in a single layer in a large shallow baking pan. Bake in a 300 degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until the bread cubes are dry; stirring several times. Place dry bread cubes in a greased 2-quart square baking dish. Set aside. Increase oven temperature to 325 degree F.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together egg yolks, whipping cream, half-and-half, sugar, and vanilla. Pour egg mixture over bread. Use the back of a large spoon to gently push down on the bread cubes, making sure bread absorbs the egg mixture. Cover and chill 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 50 minutes or until puffed and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool slightly. Serve warm with Amaretto Sauce or maple syrup. Makes 9 servings.

Note

  • * If you use banana bread bake the cubes for 45 minutes to dry, and increase baking time for the bread pudding to 70 to 75 minutes.

Note

  • ** If you like, omit the whipping cream and use 3 cups total half-and-half or light cream.
