Red Velvet Bread Pudding Recipe!!! Christmas Time!

22 Dec

Just when I thought life couldn’t get any better, a recipe for Red Velvet– Bread Pudding stumbled onto my lap! Alright, alright! Don’t twist my arm I was watching Paula Deen’s Holiday Special on Sunday afternoon and she featured it on her show. But all I can say is thank god I was watching!

For those of you who don’t know me red velvet cake to me is like biting into a little slice of heaven (if I can imagine what heaven is like). So, RED VELVET BREAD PUDDING can only be like having a bigger slice of heaven! Just thinking about the creaminess of the icing and the moisture of the cake, makes my mouth water! This recipe is a must do!

On that note,

Al, “change of plan. Our contribution for Titi Glennis’s Christmas dinner will no longer be an entrée. We are on to desert and maybe an appetizer. Two if we’re lucky (no mishaps in the kitchen).” Stay tuned! I will blog all about our Red –Velvet- Bread –Pudding- Kitchen -Escapades!

Here’s the recipe….Can’t wait! Not so easy..but so worth it!

Red Velvet Cake:

2 cups of Sugar
2 sticks of butter-room temperature
2 eggs
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 ounces red food coloring
2 ½ cups of cake flower
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of buttermilk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
½ teaspoon of baking soda
1 tablespoon of vinegar

Bread Pudding Mix:

3 cups of half and half
3 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
A Pinch of Salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Vanilla ice cream for serving

Directions:

1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees
2. In a bowl, mix the sugar and butter-until light and fluffy
3. Add eggs- one at a time and mix well after each egg is added
4. Mix cocoa and food coloring together and then add to sugar mixture- Do this separately before adding into the bowl
5. Sift together flour and salt
6. Add flour mixture to the creamed mixture. Alternate with Buttermilk (add a bit of flour mixture, then buttermilk, then flour mixture, etc)
7. Blend in vanilla
8. In a small bowl, combine baking soda and vinegar- add to mixture
9. Pour batter into a prepared sheet pan (grease 9 by 13 by 2 inch sheet pan)
10. Bake for 20-25 minutes (if you can insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean, it is ready)
11. Cool completely.
12. Once cooled, cut cake into 1 inch cubes.
13. Place cubes onto an 11-17 inch cookie sheet and put in oven for 10 minutes.

Bread Pudding Mix:
1. In a medium bowl, combine half and half, eggs, egg yolk, salt, and vanilla
2. With an electric mixer (in a large bowl) beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth
3. Mix into the half and half mixture
4. Place the red velvet cubes in a large baking dish or in 8 individual ramekins..A.K.A little bowls (they sell disposable ones)
5. Add pudding mixture to each (make sure the cubes are covered completely)
6. Bake for about 30 minutes

Whipped Cream:
1. In a medium bowl, beat cream until thickened
2. Add sugar and vanilla
3. Beat until you have reached a soft consistency (like whipped cream)—So much better than the bottled kind!
