Pecan Pie Bread Pudding

Every holiday season we love to make a bread pudding. This year I want to try out this lovely Pecan Pie Bread Pudding. Bread puddings are so easy to throw.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 cups bite-sized bread pieces
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon maple or vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup pecans, halved or chopped

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Prepare an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish by lining it with parchment paper and spraying well with a non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Place all of the bread pieces into the baking dish.
  3. Pour the melted butter over the bread.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, granulated sugar, maple or vanilla extract, cinnamon, and the salt.
  5. Stir in the pecans. Pour evenly over the bread pieces. Use a rubber spatula to push and “prod” the bread pieces around in the dish until all are coated in the syrupy mixture.
  6. Bake at 375º for 45 minutes. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream!
