Blueberry bread pudding with seasonal summer peaches. Toasted pieces of brioche soak in a sweet cream then are topped with the fruit. This dessert casserole is baked in a water bath to create a delicious custard. Serve each slice warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
Bread pudding is a baked custard that uses day-old bread to soak up a sweet cream mixture. It’s a heavenly slice of comfort food. Since the warm weather brings a plethora of ripe berries and stone fruit to the market, this recipe incorporates pieces of caramelized peaches and plump fresh blueberries for added flavor.
Now there are a few key preparation steps to nail a silky custard texture. The bread cubes first need to be toasted to drive out excess moisture. The custard is then tempered to ensure that it doesn’t turn into a bowl of scrambled eggs. Finally, the soaked bread and fruit are baked in a water bath for even cooking.
The result, the most luscious bread pudding recipe you’ve ever tasted….
