Happy Saturday! It's been a long week and I am thrilled that the weekend is finally here. I had a crazy week at work, then my laptop decided to die on me. It's been in the shop for a few days and I finally got it back last night, but unfortunately that meant I missed a few days of brunch week. I'm so bummed I didn't get a chance to share a couple of my favorite recipes with you, but I'm very excited to end the week with this amazing Strawberry Bread Pudding! A twist on traditional bread pudding, it's full of fresh strawberries and strawberry preserves, making it the perfect dish for breakfast or brunch.

This Strawberry Bread Pudding has quickly become one of my new favorite brunch dishes. Made with cubes of French bread, Eggland’s Best Eggs, Dixie Crystals Granulated Sugar, fresh strawberries and strawberry preserves, it's decadent and delicious and perfect for feeding a crowd.

I love this recipe because it's so simple to make. One bowl and one cast iron skillet is all you need. It can be prepped the night before and baked the next morning, so no stressing out on brunch day!

Strawberry Bread Pudding
Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door
Serves 6 - 8

Ingredients:

8 cups cubed French bread
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream 
1 cup milk 
2/3 cup strawberry preserves
4 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered
Powdered sugar, for garnish

Spray a large cast iron skillet or baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spread the bread cubes evenly in the prepared pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, milk, preserves, sugar, butter, vanilla and cinnamon until well combined. Add the strawberries and stir well. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread cubes, pressing down to make sure all the bread cubes are coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour, or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, until golden brown and the dish is set in the center. Remove from the oven and let stand for 15 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar.

Bon App├ętit!
