Cherry Bread Pudding

I took photos when I made the dishes for the holiday but I was not ready to serve them for a day or two and did not want to cut them up.  This is why, you have been seeing so many pans of food rather than portions.

This bread pudding is fabulous because of the cherries.  They add a sweet but edgy flavor to the dish. This is one of my favorites.

Cherry Bread Pudding

Ingredients:

2 cups  sugar
5  eggs
2 cups Rice Milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3 cups stale bread, cut into cubes
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/8 cup margarine, left out to slightly warm

8 ounces frozen cherries or fresh cherries
1 cup chopped pecans

Sauce:

1 cup  sugar
1/4 cup margarine, melted
1 egg, beaten
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Method:


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 by 13 pan.

Mix sugar, eggs, and rice milk in a bowl.


Add vanilla extract.

Pour over cubed bread and let stand for a few minutes until absorbed.

Mix brown sugar, butter, and pecans until you have a crumbly mixture.


Add cherries to mixture.

Pour bread mixture into prepared pan. 


Sprinkle with brown sugar mixture and bake for 40 minutes.
For the sauce:

Mix sugar, margarine, egg, and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat. 

Stir together until the sugar is melted.  

Pour over bread pudding. Serve warm or cold.
