Here is the bread pudding recipe. I'm so sorry that it didn't go through before.
I hope you all are able to get a chance to try it.
If you do, let me know how it comes out!
Marlene's Bread Pudding
1 loaf of cinnamon swirl bread, cut into 1" cubes (raisins optional)
1 stick butter, melted
4 cups whole milk
1 cup sugar
1 T vanilla
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1.5 tsp all purpose flour 1.5 tsp vanilla ⅛ tsp salt 1 scoop Haagen Dasz vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 375*. Spread cubed bread on a baking sheet and toast until light brown, appx 8 minutes. Pack toasted bread into a lasagna dish and drizzle with melted butter. Reduce oven heat to 350*. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Pour custard over bread and let soak for ten minutes. Bake pudding until puffed and firm, appx 45 minutes. While baking, prepare Vanilla Sauce: In a small saucepan, combine cream and sugar. SLOWLY bring to a boil to dissolve sugar. In a bowl, whisk egg yolks, flour, vanilla and salt until smooth and pale yellow. Pour a bit of hot cream into the eggs, whisking constantly. Then pour all of the egg mixture into the cream mixture, whisking constantly. Cook over very low heat (Do NOT boil), stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in ice cream.
