Blueberry Bread Pudding - My Recipe

Bread Pudding has always been one of my favorite Desserts.  When I decided to make a Bread Pudding that didn't "break" {get watery after baking}, I put my love of lemon and blueberries into it and came up with this wonderfully moist and luscious Bread Pudding.  Then I added a Lemon Anglaise Sauce to it...oh my!  Out of this world.  Great for any night of the week or for Guests to dinner.  It makes a delightful dessert for Tea, also.  Today, I'm...
making this Recipe and baking it in 12-Cups of 2 Large Muffin Pans...for individual servings.   I will just assemble the same way I would if I were doing it in a large pan.  Bread cubes in the greased cups...blueberries, lemon rind over the top of them.  Then Cream Cheese pieces...topped with remaining bread cubes, blueberries and lemon rind.  Then the Milk Mixture.  Let set 20 minutes and then bake at 325° 30-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  This recipe will yield 10-12 Large Muffin Size servings.  

Bread Pudding
6c Egg Bread cubes
2c Fresh Blueberries, divided, save 1/2c for serving
8 large Eggs, well beaten
3T grated Lemon zest
11/2c Sugar
1/2c dark Brown Sugar

Lemon Anglaise Sauce

In a bowl, whisk eggs, milk, cream, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar. Pour over bread mixture. Allow to set for 20 minutes. {can be covered with saran wrap and refrigerated for up to 24 hours at this point}  Preheat oven to 325°. Bake uncovered in the center of the oven for 60-90 minutes or until tested done when knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold…or microwave for 30-45 seconds to re-warm it.

Combine the berries, zest and sugar and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Whip cream cream to stiff peaks. Top the individual serving of Bread Pudding with a heaping Tablespoon {or more} of the Lemon Crème Pie Yogurt with a dollop of whipped cream on top. Then top with some of the refrigerated Blueberries. Oh, my…it’s so good. Serve. Chill remaining Bread Pudding.
