Decadent delight: White chocolate bread pudding with white chocolate sauce

It’s the season for all things decadent! Valentine’s Day and Mardi Gras are upon us, and this bread pudding is sure to be a hit for either occasion. I love bread pudding because it is surprisingly easy to make. Whether
your plans involve a date night in or a festive evening out; this sweet treat is the perfect Southern dessert to enhance your celebration.


  • 7 ounces French bread, torn into small cubes
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups white chocolate
  • (13oz bag)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter for greasing your pan


  1. Heat the heavy cream in a pot with one cup of milk.
  2. Pour in the white choc- olate chips and turn off heat; let it sit and melt.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt.
  4. Once the milk and white chocolate mixture has cooled somewhat, add the cold cup of milk.
  5. Slowly add this mixture to the egg mixture while whisking (Note: adding this too fast will scram- ble your eggs — not good.)
  6.  Once all milk mixture is added, add your torn-up French bread to the bowl and let it soak for about 15-20 minutes.
  7.  Butter the pan you will bake in, and pour in the bread mixture.
  8.  Bake for about 60-70 minutes at 350 degrees.


  • 6 ounces white chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream


  1. Bring the heavy cream to a boil, and turn the heat off.
  2. Pour in white chocolate and allow it to melt.

It will look runny, but that is OK. When the bread pudding comes out of the oven, let it sit for a minute so it will “deflate.” Then, you can pour as much as you want on top. You may not want to pour the entire mixture; I usually do not. I refrigerate the remaining sauce for drizzling on top later or save another use
