Kneaders Raspberry Bread Pudding

My younger sister is getting married today!  I thought this would be the perfect recipe to share on this blissful day….because this recipe truly is blissful!

I was just recently introduced to Kneaders earlier last year.  I am a big sandwich fan, and convenient enough, that is what this restaurant specializes in!  Aside from their yummy sandwiches, they have some delicious desserts, this Raspberry Bread Pudding being one of them.  You could say it was love at first bite for me.  Ever  since my first bite, I have been on the lookout for a copy cat or similar recipe.  Thanks to Pinterest, I have now found one!  This could be a dangerous thing for me!You will love the sweetness and fruitiness that this bread pudding offers!

In a large bowl mix the cream, sugar, egg and vanilla. Cut bread into 1 1/2 inch cubes and add to cream mixture, coating the bread well.Let stand 30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to allow cream to absorb.Mix the raspberries, sugar and apple juice, stirring until sugar is dissolved.

Layer a 9×13 inch baking pan 3/4 full with the bread mix and pour fruit filling over the bread mix, spreading evenly.

Top with the remaining bread.Bake 40 minutes at 375.

Serve warm topped with vanilla cream sauce.

(If you want it to cut into nice squares you can chill it and then cut it into squares, then microwave it for 20-25 seconds per piece and top with sauce.)


Vanilla Cream Sauce

1 1/3 C. butter
5 T. flour
3 C. heavy cream
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp vanilla

    This looks so much like a recipe I've been trying to find for years. It was a cherry bread pudding with vanilla sauce that I used to eat at the Four Seasons Restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Chicago, and haven't found anything similar. This looks so much like it only with raspberries instead of cherries. I'm definitely going to try it and see if that's it.

    Oh my word this looks so good! I clicked on it b/c the thumbnail looked like this raspberry coffee cake I make, but I had no idea it would be bread pudding! I've never seen a bread pudding like this! I'd love it if you shared it at my party!

    Oh, your picture is just gorgeous! Isn't this the most amazing recipe? So glad you tried it out! Aged bread just means day old. I better change that cuz someone asked me that too.

    This is my favorite thing from Kneaders! I've resisted trying to copy it because I think it's one of those things I shouldn't know how to make ;) Your's looks just like the original! I'll have to pin this…you know…if I ever have the need for some… ;)

    We made this for dessert tonight and it was fabulous!! The bread pudding wasn’t soggy or overly sweet, and the vanilla sauce was heavenly. It is now a go-to dessert in our house. Thanks for the great recipe! (as a side note, we used fresh bread and it worked just fine).

    I love raspberries and I LOVE bread pudding!! What could be better? This looks amazing (and surprisingly simple). I can’t wait to try it!

  23. 23

    The raspberries sound wonderful and look amazing, but I was wondering if you’ve ever used any other kind of fruit, peaches, apricots, cherries, etc.?

    I made this dessert tonight and OMG it was THE BEST bread pudding/dessert I have made in a LOooong time! So rich and decadent with the sauce! Didn’t buy quite enough whipping cream and I live in the country so I substituted one cup original egg nog for the heavy cream in the sauce, Tasted amazing (so I used 2 cups heavy cream and 1 cup egg nog for the sauce). Also after you add all the cream to the sauce pot, make sure to bring it to a boil over medium heat or it may not be as thick as it should be. God bless Pinterest!

    I made this and love it! I was concerned about all that cream so I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead. It worked out just fine. I think I will even try whole milk next time to see if there is that much difference. I found it to be way too rich even with just the 1/2 and 1/2. I also added more vanilla and sugar to the sauce. Liked it better that way. I also prefer it cold out of the fridge. I am that way with apple pie too. Love it for breakfast. Anyway, just my 2 cents worth. Will definitely be making it again.

    I made this for a dinner party last night and it got rave reviews! I used just plain white bread loaves, but next time, I will probably use more of an artisan bread that are not quite as mushy that will hold up better in the soaking. Also, I will use just a little less of the raspberries, because it came out really moister than I think of for bread pudding. I served it cold with the warm vanilla sauce on the side, so people could put on as much as they liked. Like I said, everyone loved it! Thanks!

    Thank you for sharing. I made this today and it was amazing. I will be making this every year.
