Bread Pudding with Fruit Compote

This is a perfect "sweets" for a lazy Sunday morning... or afternoon... or any time when you want something easy, light, yet comforting. The "hands-on-time" is only 15 mins. The pudding and the compote can made up to one day in advance. Before serving, bring the compote to room temperature and warm the pudding, covered, in 350 F oven for 30-40 minutes. Your family will be so grateful! :)
Very delicious - enjoy!:)

Serves 10Hands-On Time: 15m Total Time: 1hr 40m

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, plus more for the baking dish
  • large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 pound challah bread or brioche, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 10 cups)
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup dried apricots, cut into quarters
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 2 tablespoons brandy (optional)
  • Directions
  1. Butter a 9-by-13-inch or some other large, shallow baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, 1 cup of the sugar, and ½ teaspoon salt.
  2. Heat oven to 350° F. Place the bread in the prepared dish and pour in the egg mixture, pressing the bread down to submerge it. Let sit for 30 minutes, pressing down on the bread occasionally.
  3. Sprinkle the bread with ¼ cup of the remaining sugar and dot with the butter. Place the dish on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until set and golden, 55 to 65 minutes (tent with foil if the pudding browns too quickly).
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the orange juice, apricots, raisins, cherries, and the remaining ¼ cup of sugar and ¼ teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is soft and the liquid is slightly thickened, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the brandy (if using). Serve the compote with the bread pudding.
