Peach Bread Pudding:

  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 10 oz. stale sourdough bread diced
  • 1 ¼ cups dark brown sugar
  • 1 stick melted unsalted butter plus 1 tablespoon room temperature
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons nutmeg
  • 16 oz. frozen peaches thawed

Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ cup heavy cream


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a bowl soak bread in 2 cups of milk. In another bowl beat sugar and butter together with a hand mixer, until mixture resembles wet sand. Add eggs one at a time, until eggs are fully blended. Add vanilla, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg. Mix in remaining milk, stir in bread and peaches.
  • Butter a 9 x 13 casserole dish. Pour mixture into casserole dish, bake for 20 minutes. Reduce oven to 300°F and continue baking for 1 hour, bread pudding is done when the center has a slight jiggle but mostly stiff.
  • While bread pudding is baking, make caramel sauce: In a large pot over high heat add the sugar water and salt to a pot, cook for 5 minutes or until sugar melts and turns a caramel color. Remove from heat, add the heavy cream, the sugar will steam and bubble up. Cook caramel over a low heat, stir until sauce smooths out.
  • Serve peach bread pudding hot with caramel sauce.

  1. Hello chef Kenneth,
    I just watched you make your peach bread pudding with caramel sauce. I really would like to try it but I need to know what I can use in place of milk in the recipe. I’d like to try oat milk since I can’t have soy and I’m not too particular about nut milks. Do you have a suggestion? I would love to try your recipe.
