Delicious Bread Pudding

Dustin is a great husband because every time I make something he said it is one of his new "favorites." He has loved this recipe for bread pudding and I have kind of worked on perfecting it to the way I like it. From working at the BYU bakery I even came up with a caramel sauce that is super delicious. Enjoy!


6-7 slices, day old bread
2 Tbs butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Break bread into small pieces and put them in a 8x8 square baking dish. Drizzle melted butter over bread. In a medium bowl combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread and lightly push down until the bread is covered and soaked in the mixture. 
Bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.
For the caramel topping: it is very simple. In the bakery we buy bulk Hershey's caramel, but I don't need a 7 lb. tin can of caramel so I just melt some of those little plastic wrapped caramels and melt them with some cream until it is a good texture. yummm... then just drizzle it on top of a piece of the pudding and put a dollop of whipped cream with some cinnamon and nutmeg sprinkled on top for a garnish.
