White Chocolate Blueberry Bread Pudding

White Chocolate Blueberry Bread PuddingWith fall coming on strong I'm back in the habit of making warm breakfasts to get the kids off right so I'll be featuring some of our favorite breakfasts--or brunches. Or shoot, you can even eat these for dinner, it's not as if I'm setting any rules here, people.

With fall fruits and berries in season you could probably substitute raspberries, blackberries or cherries in place of blueberries if you so chose.

2 cups milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 pound day-old bread cut into cubes
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup blueberrries
2 ounces white chocolate, broken into tiny chunks
1 1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened

Grease a casserole dish and set aside. In a large bowl whisk together the milk and vanilla. Add eggs and sugar and whisk thoroughly.

Line bottom of baking dish with a layer of bread cubes then top with blueberries and chocolate chunks. Finish with the remaining bread cubes on top. Pour the milk and egg mixture over the top until the dish is thoroughly soaked and then dot the top with the softened butter.

Leave overnight in the refrigerator, then in the morning take it out and preheat the oven to 375. Cooke for 50-60 minutes or until set and let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.

I have the biggest weakness for breakfast foods . . . this is throwing me into serious cravings. I'll have to pick up some of the ingredients tomorrow and try and make it before baby comes!

that looks wonderful! I winced a little on the 1 cup of sugar part ;-) and I'm not a sugar-phobe... I may have to try this for the kids. I bet it would get them out of bed and to the table on a school morning!
