Pecan Pie Bread Pudding without the crust!

 




Pecan Pie Bread Pudding is actually Pecan Pie without the crust. Instead, the filling is poured over a delicious bread pudding and baked to perfection!
It’s Pecan Pie infused heaven!!I’ve been on a Pecan Pie theme lately. When I started this, I intended to make a Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding, but after I got everything out I started thinking about trying to make it taste like Pecan Pie instead.
Great decision! It was delish.
Bread pudding is one of my most favorite desserts to make. It’s very simple and economical dessert to make. All bread puddings have basically the same format: dried bread and a custard sauce made from milk, eggs and sugar. To this you can add any additional ingredients to make the bread pudding your own. For Pecan Pie Bread Pudding, I added butter, brown sugar and pecans to give it the pecan pie element.
The butter, brown sugar and pecans on top of my bread pudding are almost like a streusel. The cook together creating a ‘crunch’ and a caramel sauce.<
Pecan Pie Bread Pudding is crispy and crunchy on the outside. It’s creamy and smooth on the inside making for one beautiful dessert. The dessert dreams are made of… just me?
