Super Bowl And Bread Pudding Muffins

I've been eating fresh guacamole and yummy barbecue pork chops, all made by sweet hubby for our own little Super Bowl party. It was just us, no Monkey Boys...darn! A little too quiet for me!

And then there was dessert...

I've been saving two little jars of homemade salted caramel rum sauce for the next time I made bread pudding.
That would be today. 

Those two yummy jars of goodness came all the way from Madame Samm and seriously, this stuff could be eaten by the spoonful all by itself! It definitely was a decadent treat drizzled over the top.

I hope you've all had a great day!

P.S. Just in case you want the recipe for making bread pudding in muffin tins, here it is:


Makes 12 large muffin-size

Mix together:

·                  7 eggs
·                  1/2 cup sugar


·                  2 cups half and half or cream
·                  1 teaspoon vanilla (or almond) flavoring
·                  1 to 2 teaspoon cinnamon

Pour egg mixture over:

·                  8 cups stale/dry bread, cubed (use a variety of bread types like wheat, rye, challis, white, raisin bread, but make sure to include 2 croissants)
·                  2 apples chopped (peeled or unpeeled)
·                  1/2 c. blueberries, fresh or frozen
·                  ½ - 1 cup raisins
·                  1/2 cup large dark chocolate pieces (optional, but it makes it so good)

Mix all together in big bowl (use your hands or a big spoon to toss it around.) Don't let it get soggy. 

Pour into greased large muffin tins.

Baking instructions:

Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes; turn heat up to 450 degrees for 5-7 minutes to make the top crust crispy.

Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Drizzle with caramel or lemon sauce, if desired.

  4. I love bread pudding and definitely look forward to making this. thanks for sharing.


  5. I want some. Thanks for the recipe. My dad loves bread pudding & those look like the perfect size.

  6. I started reading the pattern for bread pudding and saw 7 eggs - I thought hurrah - PROTEIN - that counts as protein! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Sorry it was too quiet around the house. My son is a St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan, so during the Series, he came to my house to watch with me because he wanted to watch with someone and he wanted to stay out of the bars. We had a good time. Next year, I won't get to do that - we and his 8 year old's mommy are getting back together after 6 years and he planning on moving 2 1/2 hours away with her. I love her, too, so I'm not too sad. She and I've remained friends all these years and I've good to see "bugger butt" that way, too.

  7. It was a great game and now catching up with reading blogs...going to have to make these!!!
