Awwwww yes... Easter. The day of chocolate shaped bunnies, deviled eggs, the official launch of the little summer dress, the only day I'll ever wear white gloves, and the end of lent. Oh the end of lent.Ok, so I've rarely observed lent, but I'm slowly hearing the excited groans of those around me that are longing for their neglected shots of espresso, french fries, chocolate bars, and donuts - they're getting louder and more insistent as the end of lent draws near. So I realize this post will not help those dessert hunger pangs over the next week, but drop this little ditty into your crockpot the night before Easter and wake up to heavens opening up over Easter brunch. You'll thank me after its devoured.This is a super easy crockpot bread pudding that is moist, sweet, and nutty. I love the Cinnamon Sugar Sauce that is drizzled over the top - when it's topped off with the sauce and a dollop of homemade whipped cream, this centerpiece of brunch is a true winner!easy bread pudding recipe, crockpot bread pudding recipe, slow cooker recipe, slow cooker bread pudding recipe, easter breakfast recipe, Easter Sunday recipe, Easter recipeYou'll pull out of your baking pantry all of the essentials - and a good amount of creams - for this delicious dish. easy bread pudding recipe, crockpot bread pudding recipe, slow cooker recipe, slow cooker bread pudding recipe, easter breakfast recipe, Easter Sunday recipe, Easter recipeAnd don't forget the sauce - the Cinnamon Sugar sauce will take some buttermilk, corn syrup, and a dash of baking soda. easy bread pudding recipe, crockpot bread pudding recipe, slow cooker recipe, slow cooker bread pudding recipe, easter breakfast recipe, Easter Sunday recipe, Easter recipe easy bread pudding recipe, crockpot bread pudding recipe, slow cooker recipe, slow cooker bread pudding recipe, easter breakfast recipe, Easter Sunday recipe, Easter recipeYou'll start by toasting your almonds for a minute or two in the broiler on a baking sheet. easy bread pudding recipe, crockpot bread pudding recipe, slow cooker recipe, slow cooker bread pudding recipe, easter breakfast recipe, Easter Sunday recipe, Easter recipe easy bread pudding recipe, crockpot bread pudding recipe, slow cooker recipe, slow cooker bread pudding recipe, easter breakfast recipe, Easter Sunday recipe, Easter recipe easy bread pudding recipe, crockpot bread pudding recipe, slow cooker recipe, slow cooker bread pudding recipe, easter breakfast recipe, Easter Sunday recipe, Easter recipeThen cut up your bread into one inch chunks.

  • Nonstick spray
  • 2 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 9 large egg yolks
  • 1 loaf challah bread, cut or torn into 1-inch pieces (stale is best)
  • 3/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • Cinnamon Sugar Sauce, recipe follows
  • Freshly whipped cream, for serving
Cinnamon Sugar Sauce
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
Directions:
  1. Coat the insert of a slow cooker with nonstick spray. Line the insert with aluminum foil for easy removal, letting some foil overhand for handles.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the whole milk, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and egg yolks. Toss in the cubed bread and the almonds and mix to coat all the bread.
  3. Add the mixture to the slow cooker, cover and cook on low until the center of the bread pudding is set, about 4 hours. Remove the lid and cool. Use the foil handles to lift the bread pudding from the slow cooker. Drizzle individual servings with Cinnamon Sugar Sauce and top with freshly whipped cream.
  4. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the sugar, butter, buttermilk, corn syrup, vanilla and cinnamon and salt and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and slowly add the baking soda. At first the sauce will bubble up, just keep stirring. Sauce will thicken as it cools.
