Bread and Butter Pudding with Maple Caramel Sauce via Libbie Summers

OK, maybe this isn’t quite French Toast, but dare we say it’s better? Here’s how to make it:


2 tablespoons butter, softened
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
7 ounces brioche, cut into eight 1/2-inch slices, halved diagonally
3 large eggs, plus 3 large egg yolks
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
½ cup Pappy & Co. Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fine salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Salty Maple Caramel Sauce (recipe to follow)


1. Preheat oven to 325 º F. Butter a shallow baking dish.
2. Sprinkle chocolate evenly over the bottom of the baking dish.
3. Arrange brioche slices in dish.
4 In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, yolks, milk, cream, syrup, cinnamon and salt.
5. Pour mixture over the brioche and let sit 10 minutes.
6. Sprinkle top with sugar
7. Bake until bread pudding is puffed and custard is set (about 1 hour). Let cool and serve with Salty Maple Caramel Sauce.

Salty Maple Caramel Sauce (heaven in a spoonful)

*Salted Maple Caramel Sauce is great spooned over everything from ice cream to broiled fruit!*

2 cups Pappy & Co. Maple Syrup
½ cup heavy cream
¼ cup butter, softened
½ teaspoon flake sea salt (we use Maldon)


1. In a deep thick bottom pot over medium heat, add maple syrup and bring to a low boil. Allow to boil for 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes with a silicone spatula (syrup will start to coat the backside of the spatula and become thick when cooled).

2. Stir in the butter until it is completely melted and then add the cream, stirring constantly. It will not bubble up dangerously like caramel but it will still be very hot. Add the salt and then stir to mix. Mixture will thicken as it cools.
