Grape Bread Pudding with White Chocolate Sauce
Makes 6 servings
2 large eggs
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons almond extract
1/2 loaf (8 ounces) French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 1/2 cups fresh red grapes
1 cup (6 ounces) white chocolate chips
For the white chocolate sauce:
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease an 8×8-inch baking pan.
2. Combine the eggs, cream, sugar, and almond extract in a large bowl. Stir in the grapes and white chocolate chips. Stir in the bread cubes and let the mixture stand for 15 minutes, or until the bread is softened.
3. Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking pan and bake, uncovered, for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Let the bread pudding stand for 10 minutes before serving.
4. While the bread pudding is sitting, prepare the white chocolate sauce. Put the white chocolate chips in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring the cream just to a boil, then pour it over the chocolate and whisk them together until smooth. Serve with the bread pudding.
