Bread Pudding:

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup fat-free half & half
  • ½ cup nonfat milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ cup egg substitute
  • 2/3 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener - Granulated
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups dry bread cubes (8 slices of bread of your choice - fluffy whole grain bread works well)
  • 1/3 cup dried tart cherries
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons brandy extract

Brandy-Flavored Sauce:

  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon fat-free half & half
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener - Granulated
  • 1 teaspoon brandy extract


Make bread pudding:

  • Heat oven to 400ºF. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium sauce pan, add half & half, milk, and butter. Cook over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture is hot. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix egg substitute, SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir in bread cubes. Add warm milk mixture and blend thoroughly.
  • In a small bowl, add cherries, water, and brandy extract. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Add to bread mixture and stir well.
  • Scoop about ¼ cup of bread pudding mixture into each cup, and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Make brandy-flavored sauce:

  • While bread puddings are baking, add one cup half & half to a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer.
  • Blend cornstarch and 1 tablespoon half & half in a small cup, add to heated half & half and bring to a gentle boil, stirring constantly to avoid burning on bottom.
  • Let mixture boil for 1 to 2 minutes to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated, and brandy extract.
  • Remove bread puddings from muffin pan. Place on dessert plates.
  • Drizzle with warm Brandy-Flavored Sauce.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon (optional).

Helpful Tips for All Recipes
  • When a recipe call for House Seasoning Blend, you can find the recipe on www.itisakeeper.com. Simply search for "House Seasoning Blend" or you can substitute salt and pepper to taste.  
  • I always use unsalted butter in my recipes.
  • I always use a meat thermometor to test for doneness when cooking meat.
  • When a recipe is made in the oven, it should be pre-heated to the temperature in the recipe, unless otherwise noted.
