Challah Bread Pudding with Bailey’s Irish Crème Sauce

The title alone should have you drooling at the mouth! Have you taken a bite of something and thought… My Lord this is good!? well prepare to get that feeling again when you taste this challah bread pudding.

 

This is not your granny’s bread pudding, and quite frankly you will have granny! Asking for the recipe when you lay this at the dinner table at the next family gathering. Trust me! And what I love most is that it is not over powering in its sweetness. Deserts, no doubt should be sweet but, there must be gentle levels of sweetness in my opinion to enjoy your desserts. Am I right?

 

Bread pudding is a staple desert in New Orleans and most bread puddings in New Orleans are accompanied with a Rum sauce, that I love! And there’s the bread puddings that are filled with raisins, nuts and some even pineapples. I have no problems with any of those variations, but to have a simple bread pudding that taste not so simple is always the winner! Challah bread pudding has up the levels of your normal bread puddings for sure!

 

I recently started to bake challah bread, and couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of such a beautiful bread. It’s tender sweetness and softness is just a pleasure to eat and there’s only one million! ways you can use this bread.

 

Challah bread is part of the Jewish tradition that is eaten on Shabbat. It’s incredibly delicious and the possibilities are endless with using this bread in other recipes. You can check out this recipe for making challah bread here. But, for this challah bread pudding recipe, you can purchase some from your local bakery or grocery store.

Purchase your challah bread ahead of time and left it sit out on the counter top for a few hours. This get’s the challah bread nice and stale. Stale bread works so much better for bread pudding’s. Because of the lost moisture in fresh bread the milk and egg mixture can soak up nicely re-moisturizing the bread again. Fresh bread would turn into mush.
