Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Do you have plans?
We do the typical yard work and start the garden Mother’s Day weekend. Get the pile of mulch delivered, plan my veggies for the summer, work work work.
But honestly? I love it. I’m not one to go out for a fancy Mother’s Day brunch somewhere. I’m just as happy with burgers on the grill with a side of coleslaw.
However, I do love a good dessert. My dad makes an incredible bread pudding that would be perfect for any brunch or party at your house! I tweaked his recipe to give me more of the things I love. Raisins and nuts.
And not just any nut. You all know by now that I absolutely love Fisher Nuts, they are preservative free and taste incredibly fresh! I packed this bread pudding with plenty of Fisher Nuts Pecans!
My house smelled amazing while this baked up. And when it came out of the oven I was going to top it with a sweet vanilla glaze…but I chose to do a brown sugar glaze instead. It was the perfect, caramel topping to this chunky, custard bread pudding recipe!
I don’t know what your mom is wishing for this Mother’s Day, but I bet this Caramel Bread Pudding might get you on her favorites list!
How to make Caramel Bread Pudding
Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish or 2 qt casserole with baking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine bread cubes with melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and chopped pecans. Mix gently until well blended. Pour into bottom of prepared baking dish.
Using the same bowl, whisk together the eggs with the sugar, vanilla and salt until frothy. Add warm milk and stir until blended. Pour over bread mixture.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until edges lightly brown (center will be jiggly). Remove from oven.
While bread pudding slightly cools and sets, prepare caramel sauce.
In a saucepan over medium high heat, combine sugars, butter and heavy cream. Bring to a boil and stir continuously. Boil (at a rolling boil) for about 2 minutes.
Serve warm. ENJOY!
