Inspiration for recipes can come from anywhere. From cookbooks. From restaurant menus. From friends and family members. From dreams.
The other day, my boyfriend told me that he had a dream that I made him peach bread pudding.
It didn’t take much for me to agree to making him a batch. I mean, how many opportunities in life do you get to literally make someone’s dreams come true?
Althought I had never heard of peach bread pudding, I was sure some creative cook had tried it before. I did some research and found this delicious recipe from My So-Called Knife. I made a few cheap-recipe tweaks and gave it a whirl. The bread pudding turned out sweet, moist, and just a little bit tart from the fresh peaches.
Peach Bread Pudding Recipe
King's Hawaiian sweet rolls made this bread pudding over-the-top delicious. I would definitely recommend using this brand of bread - but if you're in a pinch, you could certainly use regular white bread.
5 to 6 peaches
6 King's Hawaiian dinner rolls
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 325F. Grease an 8- or 9-inch square glass baking dish.
Peel peaches and chop into bite-sized pieces. Tear dinner rolls into bite-sized pieces.
Pour sweetened condensed milk into a mixing bowl. Add eggs and beat well. Add most of the bread to the sweetened condensed milk mixture (reserve a few chunks to place on top of the bread pudding). Add melted butter, hot water, vanilla, cinnamon, and chopped peaches. Mix together well so the bread is evenly moistened. Pour into baking dish, and place reserved bread chunks on top.
Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until bread pudding is set. Serve with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
