Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Look over the cherries to make sure all the pits were removed. Combine cherries and brandy in a small bowl. Microwave on high power for 30 seconds. Let stand until cool, about 30 minutes. Drain.

  • Grease a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker with butter. Cover the bottom with 1/2 of the bread cubes. Scatter 1/2 of the cherries and white chocolate chips on top. Layer remaining bread cubes, cherries, and chocolate on top.

  • Whisk eggs and sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in half-and-half and vanilla until blended. Carefully pour over the bread mixture, gently pressing down on the bread to immerse in liquid.

  • Cook on High, without lifting the lid, until set and puffed, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute cranberries for the cherries if desired. You can soak them in bourbon instead of brandy.

To brown top after cooking, transfer to a baking dish and broil on low for 3 to 4 minutes.

I used Italian bread (because I read the recipe wrong lol!) and I used bourbon instead of brandy. This was absolutely yummy and I would make it again. I ve only ever had a regular bread pudding and this was a very nice change. My Husband loved it and he doesn t like a lot of sweets. Read More
