White Chocolate Bread Pudding

Monday, December 29, 2008
It is a sad day here in the 'Ham. My favorite lunch and dessert place has closed! Prairie Fire Grille is dead! My favorite thing at PFG is their White Chocolate Bread Pudding. It is the best dessert in the world. I was on PFG mailing list and they sent out the recipe (thank goodness!)

White Chocolate Bread Pudding

12 Egg yolks
1 c. Sugar
1/2 qt. heavy cream
18 oz. white chocolate chips
1.5 loaf of white bread, crust removed
1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring
1 qt half and half

1/2 c. butter
2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/2 lb. brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. cocoa powder

In a greased 9x13 baking dish, layer your bread into 3 layers. Cut and trim as necessary to get good coverage. Whisk the egg yolks and sugar until bright yellow. Heat the cream, half n half, and vanilla until it begins to boil. Add white chocolate chips to egg mixture and stir in the hot cream until all of the chocolate is melted. Pour this pudding mixture over the bread, making sure to manipulate the bread soaking every layer with the pudding mixture.

Topping procedure:

Mix all ingredients together until well blended. Apply the topping by spreading it out evenly over the surface. Let the pudding stand for 15 minutes before you place it into the oven. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.
