To die for Bread Pudding.

We love bread pudding at this Hanson home! I had a loaf of French Bread that was super dry and I thought, "what can I do with this?" and of course bread pudding was the first thing that came to my mind. I got this recipe from Paula Deen and all I have to say is YUMMM!! She knows what she is doing when it comes to bread pudding. To top off the pudding I found a different creamy sauce to drizzle on top. Well, that is enough talking... time to get started!

*As you can see this photo doesn't have the glaze on top but just imagine it in your mind and make sure you make it!
Paula Deen Bread Pudding
2 cups sugar
5 large eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups cubed French Bread, allow to stale overnight in a bowl
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9x2 inch pan (I used the large rectangle Pyrex pan).

In a medium bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Pour it over the bread cubes and let it soak for about 10 minutes. 

In another small bowl, mix together and crumble the butter and brown sugar.  

Pour the bread  mixture in the greased pan and press it down with a fork so you make sure all the bread is soaked. Then sprinkle the brown sugar crumble evenly over the top of the bread. 
Bake for 35-45 minutes. or until set and the top springs back.

Now for the sauce:
1 cup milk
2 tbsp. butter
 1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. flour
dash of salt
Mix everything together and bring to a boil for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly. Set aside for a few minutes and then pour over your warm and delicious bread pudding!
