Step 1

Step 3

Bake, covered, at 350° for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes.

During last 15 minutes of baking, prepare Caramel-Pecan Sauce: Heat pecans in a medium skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant.

Step 5

Cook brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and pecans.

Words cannot describe how absolutely DELICIOUS this is! Rave reviews from everyone. It may even replace our pumpkin & pecan pies at next year's Thanksgiving. Easy to make and serve.

This was absolutely the BEST dessert we ever ate! I made it for a dinner party last night and served it warm with a small scoop of Bluebell Homemade Vanilla ice cream. I soaked the bread for 24 hours and substituted dark brown sugar for light brown because that's all I had on hand. Everyone was raving! It is extremely rich and will easily feed 20 people at a holiday dinner.

This is a very easy recipe to follow. I must admit that I didnt read the entire thing through before I was ready to make it. I did not have time to put the mixture in the frige for 8 hrs, I went ahead and made the bread pudding without the fridge time and it still turned out great! I took it to work and everyone said it was yummy!!
