Individual Bread Puddings

The decadent taste of bread pudding in a quick and easy, individual serving — topped with a luscious orange juice bourbon sauce!


  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 pieces stale bread cubes, cut into cubes
  • 6 apple slices


  • 1 1/2 cup 100% orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  1. Combine eggs, half and half, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Divide bread cubes evenly among 6 muffin tins coated with cooking spray. Pour egg mixture over bread cubes; top evenly with apple slices and let stand. 
  2. To make sauce: Add orange juice to a small saucepan; simmer until reduced to a very thick sauce (about 30 minutes.) Remove from heat; add butter, bourbon and powdered sugar, stirring until smooth. Pour pour half of mixture evenly over bread puddings; reserve remaining half.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Bake individual bread puddings for 20 – 25 minutes or until done. Pour remaining sauce over bread puddings to serve.
