I'm still baking, this time for a good cause. Our church is having a fall fun fest this evening and among the events is a pie auction to help feed the hungry, so I got busy to come up with a few desserts that would bring in the big bucks, so I'm hoping my baking bash will pay off!
I made my caramel apple cake, 3 in fact. Plus this yummy blueberry bread pudding that I came up with for Thanksgiving last year. I also made a frosted apple pie and a rhubarb/strawberry pie. I'm anxious to see just how high the bidding will go. Since I love to share my recipes with you, here is the recipe for the bread pudding. Now, I've never been a fan of bread pudding but my dear hubby is, and this concoction is more like a coffee cake, I guess that is why I like it so much.
Blueberry Bread Pudding
1 loaf blueberry crumble bread
1 c. frozen or fresh blueberries
12 oz. can evaporated milk
1/2 c. butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Melt butter in microwave for one min. In a large bowl combine milk and butter, mix well. Tear bread into bite size pieces and add to milk mixture. Add remaining ingredients and blend well, adding more milk if needed. Mixture should be moist but not too soggy. Transfer into a 9x13 baking pan and bake for 30-40 min. Drizzle cream cheese or vanilla frosting on top once cooled. Enjoy!
This is perfect for a bunch or pot luck. Keep your fingers crossed that my desserts bring in more than they are worth, to help feed the hungry and homeless. Don't forget to turn your clocks back tonight, fall back means a extra hour of sleep! woohoo!
