Blueberry Bagel Bread Pudding















Blueberry Bagel Bread Pudding

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup granulated sugar + 1 1/2 tablespoons
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 cups cubed blueberry bagels
1 1/4 cups blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter bottom and sides of an 8x8-inch baking dish.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; whisk in cream and 1 cup sugar, and bring mixture to a simmer. Remove pan from heat.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and vanilla until well combined - about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in hot cream until well combined. Stir in chopped blueberry bagels and allow mixture to sit for 10 minutes.

Evenly pour bagel mixture into prepared dish, and top with blueberries; sprinkle top with additional 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar. Bake 40-45 minutes or until golden brown, bubbly, and set. Cool on a wire rack until ready to serve.

Make 6 servings

  1. Midland radios are the best. They can be set to a specific area and/or specific type of warning. They also have an alarm setting, so if you only wanted to be woken up for a tornado warning, they will do that for you. I got mine at Radioshack for $30. I think Wal-mart might have them now, too.

  5. So true about Big Lots. So much stuff you just have to have that you didn't even know you needed! That bagel bread pudding looks so awesome.

  6. What a great idea! Whenever we have leftover bagels from a brunch we freeze them thinking we'll eat them sometime in the future, but that never seems to happen and I end up throwing them away a few months later. This would be a much better use! I bet there are some nice savory versions you could do too, with bagels like onion, poppy, everything, etc.

  7. They should definitely have blueberry juice, it is my favourite berry. I always have frozen blueberries on hand.

  9. THAT is truly ingenious to use sweet bagels in a bread pudding. You're so wise beyond your years.

    Tornadoes are sooo scary. Be careful!

    Huge congrats to Hannah! And have you seen the commercials for Ocean Spray BLUEBERRY JUICE! Doesn't that sound divine? I haven't found it yet, though.

  10. I love blueberries and I love bagels so I think I've love this too! We get tornadoes here every once in a great while...they are very, very scary!

  11. I'm curious how something as dense as bagels tasted in a bread pudding. Did you need to give them an extra-long soak?

    I have to wait at least another two months for blueberry season to start around here. We don't even have local strawberries yet. All I can think of is shortcake and the berries are still the anemic ones shipped from CA.

    WHY WHY WHY must you be in NY next week? Why are you here when I will be clear across the coutry in Wyoming? Why why why? How long are you staying? When do you get here?

    1. I was wondering about that too! Regardless, this looks like a genius and delicious idea. I guess we'll have to try and find out! I may use the bagels as a base for my own go-to white chocolate bread pudding recipe! I'll update on how those bagels end up in the pudding :)

  12. Love, love, love blueberries too. We have tons of blueberry farms in the county I live in.

    Love Big Lots too! I love spending the afternoon digging in there for goodies. Your right--they have a lot of food items you can't find anywhere else. The juices look really good. I'd think I'd like them.

    The bagel bread pudding looks delicious. Clever.:)

    Congrats to Hannah!

  18. blueberries are an all-star fruit--tasty straight from the bush, delicious when juiced or sauced, and decadent when baked up in a dessert. bonus: they make for a beautiful picture. :)

  20. Pudding looks delish:)...also congratulations on your sister's graduation I think she is the same age as me because I am leaving high school in England this year...but I have to take exams on everything covered this year first in a few weeks time:(...we don't have graduation you just pass or fail subject exams...do you just have continuous assessment in the US and no end of year exams? I'm so jealous if that's the case!

    I just made you brownies by the way and the are so tasty I can't stop eating them! All your recipes are so good.

  27. big lots is the bomb! i keep trying to tell people that. but no one wants to go there. the people there are more entertaining than the walmart people -- and that's saying A LOT.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I loooove Big Lots--however, we don't have any around here, the nearest one is at least 4 hrs away! That's probably better for my wallet anyway! :-)

    I know a handful of people, including myself that would be a HUGE fan of this bread pudding. Holy yum!

  33. I just bought blueberries yesterday and am happy they are starting to be more available and affordable!
    The bread pudding looks de-lish!
    Yes, get a storm radio! My husband got ours from Amazon.
    Logically, it rained yesterday here, too. ALL DAY. We're ready to not be "stuck" in this little duplex!

  34. Thanks everyone!

    Thanks for the advice, Tracie. I'll be sure to look for one.

    Cara, yes!

    Sue, I would love to try it.

    Rachel, no, just ten minutes or so. It did the trick.

    Lorie, I'm jealous of all of the blueberry farms. I don't think we have that many here.

    Mitty, I'm glad you liked them!

    Ruby Lou, which brownies? I'm happy you liked them. :) And once you graduate, you're done. She took finals before, though.

    Hi Katrina!

  35. What a neat idea & I love blueberries (but usually in August when I'm hangin' on the East Coast for vacation). I recently saw a bread pudding made with donuts. That looked pretty smack-daddy too.
