Ingredients 

Bread Layers

14 slices Sola White Wheat Bread

½ stick (55 g) unsalted butter, melted

4 tablespoons Sola sweetener

3 tablespoons chopped pecans

Zest of 1 orange

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Cut each slice of bread in half diagonally and arrange half the slices in the bottom of an 8 x 8-inch, square baking dish. Sprinkle over ½ of the melted butter, then ½ of Sola sweetener, the chopped pecans, and orange zest.
  2. Arrange the remaining bread on top of the first layer, and sprinkle over the remaining melted butter, Sola sweetener, pecans, and orange zest.
  3. To make the custard, simply whisk all ingredients together, then pour over the bread. Press the bread down to make sure it is fully soaked in the custard.
  4. Place the bread pudding into the oven and bake for 50 minutes until golden-brown and the egg custard mixture is fully set. Serve warm with Sola Salted Caramel ice cream or whipped cream.
Chef’s Tip

For a plain bread pudding, simply omit the orange zest and chopped pecans.
