Blueberry Bread Pudding Recipe
Another thing about this easy recipe is that all the ingredients are readily available at the grocery, and no pre-cooking is required.
You begin with frozen homestyle pancakes, fresh blueberries, and chopped pecans.
You will cut each pancake into half and place them in a square baking dish. Fill in between each pancake with clean, fresh blueberries.
Next, add chopped pecans. Ensure that the pecans and blueberries are distributed evenly between and around the pancakes.
Egg and Half & Half Mixture
Next, whisk together the remaining ingredients, which include eggs, half & half, cinnamon, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract.
Pour the mixture over the pancakes and cover. Place in the refrigerator overnight to allow the mixture to absorb into the pancakes. If pushed for time, allow to set for at least 4 hours.
Bake Next Day
Allow the Blueberry Bread Pudding mixture to set overnight in the refrigerator for a minimum of four hours.
Remove from refrigerator and pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until bubbling. Allow to set for at least 10 minutes after removing from oven.
While baking, you can mix the optional topping.
The optional topping is sour cream and honey. You can mix according to taste. If you prefer a tart topping, only add a small amount of honey.
You can add fresh blueberries and pecan to garnish if desired.
