Fig-Anise Bread Pudding

I picked up a loaf of Pane d’Amore Fig-Anise bread at the Port Townsend Farmer’s Market. The bread is fragrant and flavorful and I thought it might make a nice bread pudding. It did!


6 1-inch thick slices artisan bread (I used fig-anise)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk (I used hazelnut milk)
1/2 cup sugar
Optional: 1 teaspoon each, vanilla and cinnamon, if using plain bread


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut bread into 1-inch cubes and arrange in the bottom of a greased 8-inch square baking pan.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar and butter. Whisk until well mixed. Pour mixture over bread and gently push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.
