Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

**

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

*

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.
