so good. Deb, I was SOOOO worried when I didnt see any whipped cream in the first, third and last pix, but sooooo relieved when I saw it mentioned at the end of the directions with the admonishment of **spooning a healthy dollop** over the serving. I doubled the recipe with no trouble, used 6 full eggs (no separating), and topped it with bourbon whipped cream (a few tablespoons of bourbon, a few teaspoons of vanilla, and a little cinnamon)- delicious! The fromage frais is not mentioned in the the instructions, unless it is the reserved 3/4 C of mascarpone, which is used in serving. Thanks for helping me plan this weekend’s brunch menu. “Life baking sheet off plate”? Sharon — I didn’t check the temperature but you can really just check the color here.

Transfer to an ungreased 8-inch square baking dish and bake until custard is set, 25 to 30 minutes. Thank you! Do you think this would work if you made it with dulce de leche instead of caramel? ;). And wear you best punk rock outfit! I used an entire Trader Joe’s panettone instead of day-old bread: the quantity was perfect, and the raisins already in the panettone were a nice extra touch! MMMmmmmm. Super delicious, and quite easy to make. This will make me the perfect hostess. I think maybe I did something wrong? 1 tablespoon unsalted butter. Almond? thanks for the recipe! Some of the caramel at the bottom of the skillet did not cook up to the desired gooey consistency.

Your email address will not be published. I’ve been wanting to make this for some time. OMG, this looks amazing! Even my picky 11-year-old ate it and loved it. I suspect I was fearful of it because I thought it would be unbearably sweet and unbreakfast-like, but for me, the beauty of it — well, aside from the actual messy beauty of it — is that it’s not. It’s so good and so easy and everyone loved it. Thanks for all of the ideas and pictures! Sue — I’m not confident that it would. I recently advertised cognac improved, french toasted croissant at home and now everybody is asking me when it is going to happen. Skipped the bourbon, but the eggnog took care of boozy flavor. (I couldn’t convince the picky 8-year-old but, eh, more for me this way right?) This was a fantastic recipe, and I think if I had followed it more closely it would have been even better. Any tips on how I can overcome this hard topping problem for my Saturday brunch?

I tore it apart and stuffed it in some ramekins and am going to try rebaking those without any caramel because I don’t have the patience to try that again right now). I was thinking of trying to use the apple caramel recipe instead of the plain caramel here, do you think it would work? OMG fantastic! I’m off to buy bread! Then, the eggy-mascarpone mixture in the bread was kind of…not very exciting. More than enough remained, but why did this happen? Made 1/2 recipe bc had 1/2 loaf brioche already. I’ve made quite a few of your things, and never had a flop yet! About how many cups of cubed bread will a standard-ish sized baguette yield? Web search next time, check. This wouldn’t be dry on top, however; it would have caramel on top instead. Baked it last night, reheated it this morning & took it to work. Last night the carmel did turn rock hard when I poured it in the metal cake pan I was using so it didn’t get quite to the edges of the pan let alone an inch up the sides, but went ahead with the rest of the prep….used plain greek yogurt in place of mascarpone. It looks amazing, and so wonderfully….orange! Also, I found it really hard to get the mascarpone (well, fromage frais) mixed smoothly with the eggs by hand–next time, I’ll probably mix it with just one egg at first, and then slowly add the others. Really want to try it now! thank you deb! I made this a couple weeks ago for a morning tailgate. Just wow. Hi Helen — Did it seem like it needed more baking time (since you mentioned ‘gooey’)? I ended up subbing 1/4 c. of egg nog for some of the milk, because I’d run out ruining my first batch of ice cream. The only change I’ll make next time is not to use almond extract; unless you really like it, don’t use it. The dish was good and I would love to make it again. I know I will make this one again.

Thanks for this recipe, Deb. just last night i pondered how one might make pumpkin bread pudding (as i, like most others around this time, have leftover pumpkin puree from other recipes). There’s a savory egg-bread-breakfast thing you can buy in stalls and canteens in most Indian cities – you call it a bread omelet, and you basically just embed a piece of bread in a thin, crepe-ish omelet. cook the pumpkin first, then use it as the container, and when finished, slice in weges (there is a good recipe in the Victory Garden Cookbook). This looks delicious!! I love the marscapone recommendation – the flavors go so well together. Finally, Hesser calls for 1/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds to be sprinkled on the bread 15 minutes into the baking time but I never bother. Thanks again for being a trusted resource! Deb if you make this again any chance you could measure the temp of the correctly cooked version? Tried this twice and it never came together, always had a layer of fat on topmof the caramel.

This is probably a silly question, but I’ve never made bread pudding before. I am going to have to think of the appropriate punishment for you two for not showing up to ANY of the Underground Railroad to Candyland shows in Brooklyn this weekend! I used whole wheat bread and halved the sugar to make it less “dessert-y” and then doubled the recipe so, you know, no one would go hungry. Do you think it would work prepped ahead of time and reheated? Do you think it would have been better to have baked it a little longer? Plus, it’s a dessert that keeps. Cooking note, if you have 2 cups of leftover white rice, you can skip the first step, and jump in with the egg and three milks. this provided a break for our pumpkin-carving session last night.
