Pecan Pie The Bread Pudding can be described as Pecan Pie with no crust. Instead the filling is spread over the bread pudding, which is delicious and then baked to the perfect temperature!
It’s Pecan Pie heaven! I’ve been stuck on the Pecan Pie theme this week. When I began this idea, I was planning to create an Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding, but once I had everything prepared, I thought about ways the recipe to taste more like Pecan Pie instead.
Great decision! It was delicious.
Bread pudding is among my loved desserts to cook. It’s an easy and affordable dessert to prepare. Bread puddings all have the same formula of dried bread and a custard sauce that is made with eggs, milk, and sugar. In addition, you can add other elements to create your bread pudding as individual. To make Pecan Pie Pudding I added brown sugar, butter, and pecans for the pecan pie flavor.
The brown sugar, butter and pecans on top my bread pudding are similar to an Streusel. The mixture cooks together to create crunch and caramel sauce.It’s a great way to enjoy a caramel sauce.
Pecan pie bread pudding is crisp and chewy on the exterior. It’s smooth and creamy inside, making it one gorgeous dessert. Dreams of desserts are made out of… only me?
