How to Make Berry Bread Pudding with Brown Sugar Sauce

  • Generously butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  • Arrange the bread slices in the dish so they are packed in a little bit tight.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the 4 eggs, milk, white sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  • Pour the liquid over the bread, and let it sit for an hour in the refrigeraterator.
  • Press down the top with a spatula occasionally to help the bread absorb the liquid.
  • After about 30 minutes, sprinkle the berries over the pudding, and press them down inside a bit to distribute.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Bake the bread pudding for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden, and the middle is firm.
  • While the pudding is baking, make the brown sugar sauce.
  • Melt the unsalted butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir in the brown sugar, water, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  • Cook, stirring constantly for about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and whisk in the egg.
  • Return to the burner, and cook stirring constantly until thickened, about 1 minute. Serve hot over the bread pudding.
