Hi! I'm Jen from My Daylights and I'm excited to be sharing an incredibly delicious dessert! My entire family loved this easy recipe for Creamy Blueberry Bread Pudding. In fact, my husband, who is picky about desserts, asked if I would make it again and again. Things got busy so quickly this month, I've hardly had a moment's rest! I love finding recipes that are quick and easy that leave a lasting impression. Especially if it's something I bringing to a party or dinner. This recipe definitely had rave reviews and I've received requests to make it again for the next party!
1 Loaf Rhodes Frozen Bread Dough, baked according to directions
3 Cups Whipping Cream
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
3 teaspoons Vanilla
2 Cups Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
1/2 package white baking chips
1/2 Cup Whipping Cream
1/2 cup package white baking chips
Bake the frozen bread loaf according to directions. Cut cooled bread into one inch pieces.
In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add cream, sugar, vanilla and blend.
Fold in blueberries and baking chips. I used frozen blueberries and it worked perfectly.
Add mixture to bread cubes and fold in until bread cubes are evenly coated. Pour into a sprayed 9x13 pan. Let sit for 15-30 minutes while bread soaks up mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes (cover with foil last 15 minutes if necessary to prevent over browning). Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Top with sauce if desired. To make sauce, heat whipping cream until just starting to boil and pour over chips. Stir until smooth and all chips are melted.
You will have everyone drooling for more!
