Cinnamon bread pudding

Cinnamon bread pudding

Every time I go to Pike Place Market I always grab two demi baguettes at Le Panier. They offer authentic French patisserie and I just love their macaroons!  Anyway, two demi baguettes are obviously more than enough for my husband and I so I had this half-loaf of bread sitting on the counter waiting to be eaten.  I went online and found this recipe for a bread pudding.  It did wonders to my 3-day old baguette.

By itself, the bread pudding is delicious! But you can also make a brown sugar sauce to add sweetness to it.  Totally optional.

Brown sugar sauce

1 c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
4 tbsp. butter
Salt
1 1/2 c. hot water
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine the brown sugar, cornstarch, butter and a dash of salt with hot water in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and cool before adding vanilla. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Serve with love!!

    I never thought to make it with cinnamon and a separate sauce- what a great idea! :-)

    This looks delicious. Bread pudding is something I normally enjoy at restaurants. Time to start making it at home I think! And definitely with the brown sugar sauce.
