Raspberry Heaven

Kneaders Raspberry Bread Pudding

Yesterday I had a hair appointment with one of our family friends and he was working on another girl while I was there.  We had a fabulous time getting to know each other...especially when you sit for four and a half hours together.  In getting to know her...I found out that her parents started Kneaders and she and her husband owned a couple of them.  Of course we started talking about our favorite Kneader's specialties which of course included my favorite the Raspberry Bread Pudding!

She then proceeded to tell me she had a blog with my favorite Kneaders recipes on it....(heavenly angels singing in the background) her blog is www.stressedspelledbackward.blogspot.com.....fabulous!!!  I made a friend...got new highlights and found heaven on my fork!  


Kneaders Raspberry Bread Pudding


Bread Mixture
Ingredients: 

1 1/2 loaves aged, white bread

1 quart heavy cream

3 cups sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla



Directions:
In large bowl combine cream, sugar, egg and vanilla. Cut bread into 1 1/2" cubes and add to cream mixture, coating bread well. Let stand 30 minutes stirring every 5 minutes to allow cream to absorb completely. Careful not to break bread cubes apart. 

Fruit Filling
Ingredients:

5 cups frozen raspberries

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup apple juice


Directions:
Combine raspberries, sugar and apple juice, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
Layer a 9x13 dark baking dish 3/4 full with bread mixture, pour fruit filling over bread mixture, spreading evenly, top with remaining bread ( I save my best looking bread cubes for the top). Bake 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Serve warm. Top with vanilla sauce.


VANILLA SAUCE
Ingredients:

1 1/3 cup butter

5 tablespoons flour

3 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup sugar


Over medium heat melt butter, and add flour stir 10 minutes until it has a nutty aroma, do not brown. Add salt, cream and sugar and boil till mixture is thick, remove from heat adding vanilla. Serve this wonderful sauce cold.



I hope you enjoy this recipe and check out Amy's blog for other fantastic sinful delights!
