2 Recipe | "Bread Pudding" by Karey Lynn Butterworth, Chef & Owner of GLOW in Rockport

"Bread pudding is the perfect comfort food, especially for chilly days on the coast. This recipe incorporates the bread we make from scratch at the restaurant, but store bought baguettes are fine, too. Be sure to soak the bread for the full 30 minutes, for a deliciously moist pudding." - Karey (Karey Lynn Butterworth is the nationally recognized Chef & Owner of GLOW in Rockport)

INGREDIENTS:
  • 4 cups cubed baguette, crusts removed
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons good quality bourbon
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Whisk the milk, cream, eggs, vanilla bean paste, sugar and bourbon together, and then pour over the bread cubes. Soak for 30 minutes.
  2. Line 6 ramekins with parchment paper. Fill the ramekins with the bread, packing the cubes in lightly, and place into a water bath.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes or until the eggs have set and the top is starting to brown. Serve warm with bananas, pecans and Salted Caramel Sauce.
SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE:
Makes 2 cups

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoons sea salt
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Pour water into pot and sugar in the center, not touching sides of pan. Do not stir but heat over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Turn to high until it turns golden brown. It should take a total of 20-30 minutes, but do not stir.
  2. Heat cream in microwave for 45 seconds just before sugar turns golden brown. Slowly whisk in the cream, be careful not to burn and continue to boil until it thickens.
  3. Add salt stir and cool completely. Warm it up when ready to serve and add more cream if it needs thinning.

Hello Karey, Let me just start by saying YUM-O! Thank you for sharing this, and I will definitely be trying to make it as good as your picture looks! I was wondering what vanilla bean paste is? Is that simply the paste from the large Madagascar vanilla pods, scraped? I've seen those on TV. Is this something I can buy locally? Thanks in advance! Mary

Dear Mary

Thank you so much! Yes the bean paste is what you get from the inside of the pods. You can do by hand or get it prescraped for you as in this bean paste by Nielsen Massey (http://www.nielsenmassey.com/culinary/products-madagascar-bourbon-pure-vanilla-bean-paste.php). It's handy for when you want the visual of the vanilla seeds in your dish. I believe they sell at HEB and can also find online at amazon.

Enjoy!
Karey
