Salted Caramel Banana Bread Puddings
Bread and bananas are two items that always seem to fall by the wayside. A two day old half baguette or a few slices of white and a spotty banana or two are exactly what makes this recipe for Salted Caramel Banana Bread Puddings the ideal last minute dessert.
Capirotada (Bread Pudding with Raisins, Apricots, and Cheese)
Capirotada is a spiced, syrup-based bread pudding that's a Lenten favorite in New Mexico and throughout the southwest. But with its raisins, pecans, and savory-sweet flavor, we love it anytime.
Summer Fruit Panzanella
This sweet version of the classic bread salad is meant to showcase whatever seasonal fruit looks best at the market. Similarly, you can swap out the croissants for any day old bread you have, though challah would be a particularly nice choice.
Thai Coffee Bread Pudding
In this recipe, the custard base is made with sweetened condensed milk and a generous amount of espresso powder, accentuated with floral cardamom, spicy cinnamon, and the perfume of almond extract. The result is a silky dish that has the same strong, intoxicating flavors as Thai coffee.
Classic Challah Bread Pudding
Whether you choose to make it because you've got something you need to use up (eggs, milk, stale bread), or just because you love it, this rich, comforting bread pudding delivers a whole lot of dessert satisfaction with just a small amount of effort.
White Chocolate Bread Pudding
Who knew old bread could turn into something so elegant? Served just warm, the creamy, custard-soaked bread cubes melt in your mouth, while the exterior is just slightly crisp and caramelized.
Banana-Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding
Cubes of stale bread are transformed when soaked in a rum-laced custard and dulce de leche, then layered and capped with bananas.
Rhubarb Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce
Once the cubes of day old bread are soaked in a milk, egg, and vanilla bath and mixed with cinnamon sugar-dusted rhubarb, the bread pudding bakes up beautifully. The bread softens but doesn't break down into mush, and the chunks of rhubarb add a tart brightness
Hot Chocolate Bread Pudding
Chocolate and bread is already an obscenely divine combo (think pain au chocolat), but incorporating them into a warm custardy dessert makes the result downright dangerous.
