Bonus Post: You Knead It!

So… for our bonus post we had hoped that we would be sharing two fun cocktails to serve at your Super Bowl party.  Since the Chiefs and the Saints are going to be there next year instead of this year, we decided to keep that post for 2020. (wink)  Thus we bring you your January Bonus Post:  You Knead It!

There is nothing better than the smell of fresh baked bread.  The winter time is when fresh, steamy bread tastes best.  Is it because it is the ultimate comfort food?  We realized that we have a fondness for featuring good bread recipes on TBPBlog over the past couple of years.  This week we are going to take a look back and revisit some of our “kneadiest” recipes.

Zaya Banana Bread:  Yummy!  If you like banana bread, you need to try this recipe. It is so easy.  Make sure to save some bread for day 2 when the rum is released.  Oh yesssss!

Angry Orchard Bread:  This bread was an overnight success and quickly became a favorite both on the blog and in The Blind Pig household.  Did we mention that there are only 3 ingredients?

Easy Pumpkin Beer Bread:  Easy Pumpkin Beer Bread is the close cousin of Angry Orchard Bread.  You don’t have to wait for the leaves to start to fall to enjoy it.  Try it out today.

Christmas Morning Bread: Craig won’t stop talking about this bread!  This has been one of his most favorite recipes we have ever featured on The Blind Pig Blog.  It is the perfect breakfast bread for a brunch or morning meeting.  Serve it at home or take it to go.

Kerrygold Cinnamon Rolls:  No one makes cinnamon rolls like grandma.  This recipe is definitely worth the extra work.  The Kerrygold icing is a hit!

Kerrygold French Toast:  Looks difficult, but isn’t.  Serve this at your next brunch or family breakfast.  It will impress all who attend.

Whiskey Bread Pudding: This is the perfect warm winter dessert.  It is so filling and comforting with just a little zip of whiskey to warm you inside and out.

 

Seven delicious breads for breakfast, brunch or anytime.  Which one will you try this weekend?

  

 

 

Whiskey Bread Pudding

 

All of the rain and cold weather that we had last week got us in the mood for some warm comfort food. Bread pudding has a homey feel and taste that makes us think of our grandmother.  It’s a little bit like having a hug in a cup.  We’ve adapted this recipe to put a little extra twist on this traditional winter dessert.   We made a few adaptations to this basic bread pudding recipe that was originally found in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.  Whiskey Bread Pudding fits our blog criteria.  It is easy.  It is tasty.  And because we added a few fresh ingredients, it is fresh.

To make this recipe you need dried bread.  When we plan ahead of time, we save up the ends of our bread and let it dry out on the kitchen counter for a couple of days.  If you don’t plan that far ahead, it’s okay.  You can place bread cubes in a 300 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

In a mixing bowl beat together 4 eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, whiskey and vanilla.  Place dry bread cubes in a round baking dish.  Sprinkle dried cranberries over the bread.

Pour egg mixture over all.  Bake in a 325 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool slightly.  It’s that easy!

While cooling make the whiskey sauce.  In a small saucepan melt margarine, butter, beaten egg yolk, water and whiskey.  Cook and stir constantly over medium-low heat for 5-6 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and mixture boils.  Remove from heat and stir in whiskey.

Scoop bread pudding into serving cups.  Drizzle whiskey sauce over bread pudding and serve.  Yes, please!  This takes little effort and will delight your guests.
