Better late than never flashback...

Missed Flashback Friday with Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet yesterday, but that's ok, she did, too, LOL! but this one is such a good one I'll post the flashback anyway. Definitely worth repeating, especially if you like bread puddings. This one is from Food & Wine magazine. I made it a while ago and I definitely have this one on the list to make again. It was good, I wouldn't change a thing, maybe a little less heavy on the filling.

Jam and Bread Pudding
source: Food & Wine magazine, recipe by Grace Parisi
Printable Recipe

One 1-pound loaf challah bread, sliced 1/2 inch thick
3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons strawberry jam or preserves
4 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon whole milk or half-and-half
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. Arrange half of the challah in the dish; tear the slices to fit. Spread 3/4 cup of the jam on top; cover with the remaining challah.

Whisk the eggs, sugar, 2 1/2 cups of the milk and the vanilla and pour over the challah; press to soak and brush with 4 tablespoons of the butter. Cover with foil and bake for 24 minutes, removing the foil halfway through, until the pudding is set; remove from the oven.

Preheat the broiler. Blend the remaining 1 tablespoon of milk with the confectioners' sugar. Add the remaining butter and jam and stir until the glaze is smooth. Spread all but 1/4 cup of the glaze over the pudding and broil until the glaze is golden. Drizzle the bread pudding with the remaining glaze and serve.


  1. I am so hungry I am licking the screen on my computer:)

  2. Yes, we are going to have to fire Suzy..LOL

    Still looks good! Bet the kids love it!!

  3. My Mom used to make all different kinds of bread pudding - have never made it myself. Looks good!

  4. You probably think I "love" everything, but I really LOVE bread pudding! I have some milk about to expire, so I will be making bread pudding today :-)

  5. I've never tried making bread pudding either! I'm thinking I need to make some brioche now to try this :)

  6. Looks so delicious! And the weather is cool enough now to make the epitome of comfort foods, bread pudding.

  7. Great flashback, Carol. We love bread pudding TOO much and have no willpower when it's around. Yours looks like a fabulous but dangerous recipe. :) I must try it.

  8. OH Yum..this looks great! Haha..I did miss the flashback last week! I just lost track of the days and once it passed it seemed like a moot point lol. I'm so glad you joined me though and linked up this week!

  9. This was a great one to flashback as I don't remember it. Does sound good :)
