Day-old bread becomes brand new comfort food when we bake up this melt-in-your-mouth recipe for apricot bread pudding. Serve it with some piping hot coffee and unwind in style!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (1 pound) loaf day-old Italian bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apricot brandy

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together bread pieces and water, soaking bread.
  3. In a small bowl, beat eggs, then stir in heavy cream. Add to soaked bread along with apricots, vanilla, granulated sugar, salt, and cinnamon; stir until well combined. Place in prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake 60 to 65 minutes, or until puffy and firm in center.
  5. In another small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and brandy, stirring until smooth. After removing finished pudding from oven, while still warm, top with apricot glaze.

Serving Suggestion

This should be served warm, so, if not serving it right from the oven, cool, cover, and store in the refrigerator. Just before serving, cover and reheat the pudding in a 300 degree oven about 15 minutes, then top with the glaze.

I love bread and butter pudding, again this would be another childhood classic for me. It is also the first desert my partner made for me when we were dating. I now make an adult chocolate and whiskey bread and butter pudding which is really nice but I love apricots so I think I will have to give this a whirl.

something else for the apricot brandy. not something in keep on hand.

Was there anything else for the brandy?

Hello! - You can substitute apricot juice fro the brandy or just use milk for a plain glaze. Enjoy!

can you use canned apricots for this recipe?
