Cook time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup NatureBox Wild Berry Bunch
  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 3 tbs of your favorite berry jam
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 big pinches of freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 day-old baguette, cut into 3/4 inch cubes (about 5 cups) 
  • Powdered sugar (optional, for serving)
  • Greek yogurt or your choice ice cream (optional, for serving)
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Whisk together 3/4 cups of Wild Berry Bunch, half-and-half, jam, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a big mixing bowl. Then add in the black pepper and salt. Trust me on this! The black pepper and salt serves to moderate the sweetness of the mixture but won’t make the pudding salty or peppery. 

2. Add in the bread cubes and let soak for 5 minutes. Spoon the bread pudding mixture in a shallow oven proof dish and bake until cooked through and golden brown, around 30 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. 

3. Divvy up the warm bread pudding with a group of hungry friends and top with a scoop of Greek yogurt or ice cream and garnish with Wild Berry Bunch. Enjoy while fresh!
