Mixed Berry Bread Pudding

I love bread pudding.  I try to pass it off as baked french toast and make it a valid breakfast food.  I love to throw whatever seasonal bounty I have into it.  I especially love it in the spring, with berries and a lovely cup of tea...or cafe latte.  Here's my favorite spring bread pudding in all of it's berry-bursting, custardlicious glory:

Mixed Berry Bread Pudding

3-4 slices bread or 2 hamburger/hot dog buns (I used 2 bakery hot dog buns)
1 tablespoon butter
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup mixed berries (I used an equal mix of blueberries and blackberries in this one)

1 - Grease 8x8 pan and preheat oven to 375
2 - Break bread/buns into bite sized pieces and throw in the 8x8 pan
3 - Pour mixed berries over the bread
4 - Melt butter with milk in the microwave in 1 minute intervals until the butter is melted
5 - Whisk brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla into the butter-milk mixture
6 - Whisking constantly, add eggs one at a time to milk mixture; whip constantly to incorporate the eggs without cooking them
7 - Pour batter over bread/berries, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered
8 - Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped

Try to resist the urge to scoop some out immediately - this gets even better after cooling awhile :)

LOL! I'm seriously cracking up that you said you try and pass it off as breakfast food! :-) I'm with you on that one. I love bread pudding too but have never tried making it myself. You are giving me the confidence to try it! Thanks so much for linking it up!

I have a huge soft spot for bread pudding, too - and like you I'm always trying to justify eating it at inappropriate times. But like you said, it's only baked french toast!

Thanks for helping me rationalize my insanity. Visiting from SSH! :)
