Instructions Checklist
  • Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over low heat; cook and stir until butter is melted, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Beat 3/4 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons softened butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; beat until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Slowly pour milk into butter-egg mixture while continuing to stir until evenly combined.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place bread cubes in a large bowl. Pour milk mixture over bread; let stand until bread is moistened, about 5 minutes. Fold blueberries into bread mixture; transfer to a 3-quart baking dish.

  • Mix 2 tablespoons sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl; sprinkle over bread mixture. Drizzle 1/3 cup golden sauce over bread mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center of the bread pudding comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Serve bread pudding with remaining golden sauce.

I made this for my office during a potluck. It was a resounding success. Several people came up to me and said that they are not bread pudding fans but loved this recipe. I am minimally adept in the kitchen but I pulled this off really well. It had a great presentation. Read More

I needed a bread pudding recipe that called for sourdough bread. I'm so very happy I found this recipe. I made it for my coworkers and everyone who has taken a piece has come back to my desk to tell me how wonderful this bread pudding is. I made a few changes because I had to. 1. Used frozen blueberries instead of fresh (I didn't thaw them just threw them in with the bread) 2. I substituted 3 tablespoons aguafaba (bean juice - google it) for one egg because I only had two eggs left 3. I baked for 40 minutes. Next time I will make sure I have all the proper ingredients on hand:) Thank you for sharing your recipe Beth! Read More

This was outstanding. Unfortunately, the sugar, butter, egg, and milk mixture curdled after two attempts. Instead, I followed another recipe at this point. I place the sugar, butter, vanilla, and milk in a saucepan. I heated this until the butter melted. I allowed this to come to room temperature. I whisked the three eggs together and then whisked into the milk/sugar/vanilla mixture. I then pored this over the bread and blueberries. Read More

I used low fat milk in the pudding added strawberries in addition to the blueberries and used fresh strawberries instead of the creamy topping. (My tummy doesn't tolerate much dairy.) It took a little longer to cook through. We loved it! Read More

Pretty darn good! I had to add 1 more tbs of softened butter than the recipe called for to get it to cream together and I used frozen blueberries instead of fresh but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. In my opinion it almost doesn't need the "golden sauce" as it is pretty sweet on it's own. Overall a good recipe and I will certainly make it again. Thanks! Read More

Decadent. I used half the sugar and doubled the sauce:) Always a spectacular hit. Well above any other bread pudding I have tasted. Read More

Delicious. I did make a change though. Rather than adding the eggs directly into the hot milk mixture, I mixed them in a separate bowl and tempered them with the milk mixture. Seems adding the eggs directly could end up producing scrambled eggs. Read More
