Prep Time 1 hour

Ingredients

Plan Ahead: Bake the Bread Pudding and Caramel sauce ahead of time and warm in the oven or microwave when ready to serve.

    Bread Pudding:

    • 2 cup milk
    • 4 eggs
    • ½ cup sugar
    • 1 tbsp 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • ¼ tbsp salt
    • cup Sweet Hawaiian Bread, Hawaiian Rolls or Egg Bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
    • ¾ tbsp ground cinnamon
    • ¾ tbsp ground nutmeg

    Caramel Sauce:

    • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
    • ½ cup butter
    • ½ cup heavy cream
    • 1 quart vanilla ice cream (optional)
    • 2 bananas, sliced (optional)

    Instructions

    Bread Pudding

    • 1. In medium bowl whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt.
    • 2. Slice bread into 1 inch cubes. Place cubes of bread into a buttered 8x8 inch-baking pan. Pour milk mixture over the bread and let soak 15 min. Press bread down into liquid. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
    • 3. Bake at 250° for 2½ hours. Cut warm bread pudding into squares or scoop out with a spoon and serve in individual bowls or on a plate. Pour the caramel sauce over the bread pudding.

    Caramel Sauce

    • 4. Combine the brown sugar, butter and cream in a heavy saucepan and cook over medium heat until butter melts, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and simmer 15 min., stirring occasionally. Serve warm over bread pudding or serve the bread pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and sliced bananas and warm caramel sauce on top.

    Notes

    Variations: Add dried Cranberries to your bread
    pudding. Instead of the bananas, sprinkle with
    pine nuts or chopped pecans over the caramel
    sauce.
