Eggnog Bread Pudding With Maple Blueberry Sauce


Eggnog Bread Pudding With Maple Blueberry Sauce combines the wonderful comfort food of bread pudding and the sweet familiarity of maple blueberry sauce. The maple blueberry sauce is so delicious that you’ll be tempted to eat it directly from the pan, by the spoonful.

Eggnog Bread Pudding With Maple Blueberry Sauce

For the bread pudding:
2 eggs
1 pinch salt
2 cups eggnog
1/2 loaf brioche or challah, crusts cut off, bread cut into 1-inch cubes
For garnish: sliced almonds, Kit Kats

For the quick maple-blueberry sauce:
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons water
1/2 pint blueberries

medium mixing bowl
shallow baking dish
nonstick griddle (optional)
wide nonstick pan
aluminum foil
toothpick (optional)
saute pan
blender (optional)

Eggnog Bread Pudding With Maple Blueberry Sauce

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Gently whisk the eggs in a medium bowl, until lightly beaten. Add the salt and eggnog. Place the bread cubes in the bottom of a baking dish. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and allow to cover the bread cubes. Set aside to soak for a few minutes.

Cook the soaked bread cubes on a nonstick griddle or wide flat nonstick pan over medium heat. Work in small amounts so that the pieces remain at least 1 inch apart on the griddle. Turn them to brown all sides, just like you would in making French toast. Keep the finished pudding bites warm under foil while you continue to work.

Next, you will begin to prepare the sauce by bringing the maple syrup and water to a boil. Add the blueberries and cook just until they soften and begin to burst, about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat; set aside to cool.

Pour the blueberry mixture into a blender and process it until it’s smooth, or mash it, using the back of a fork. Strain the sauce to eliminate peeling pieces, if desired.

For an added appearance, garnish each bread piece with sliced almonds and Kit Kat. Place the pudding bites on a warmed platter and serve with warm maple-blueberry sauce as a dipping sauce.
