Caramel Bread Pudding
At Haleakala Creamery we love to serve our favorite desserts for breakfast too. Goat's Milk Caramel is the secret ingredient in our favorite bread pudding. Aloha!
1 1/4 cups (packed) dark brown sugar
4 1/2 cups 1/2-inch cubed (crust-less) bread
7 large eggs
3 cups fresh goat's milk
2 tablespoons Maui cane sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
2 pinches of Hawaiian sea salt
Haleakala Creamery Cajeta
Spread brown sugar evenly over bottom of a 9- to 10-cup baking dish, then spread the bread cubes evenly over. Combine eggs, milk, 2 tablespoons sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, and salt in large bowl; whisk to blend well. Pour custard through a sieve over bread in dish. Let pudding stand 30 minutes, occasionally pressing on bread to submerge.
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F. Place baking dish in roasting pan. Pour enough lukewarm water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of baking dish. Bake pudding until set, brown on top, and small knife inserted into center comes out clean, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Let cool in water 20 minutes.
Spoon bread pudding into dessert bowls, spread Cajeta liberally over pudding, and serve warm.
To keep the water in the roasting pan from boiling (which would affect the texture of the pudding), add several ice cubes to the water every 10 to 15 minutes to bring down the temperature.
Buen provecho & Mucho Aloha!
