Place bread into an 8” square baking pan, lined with parchment paper or greased well. In a bowl, mix together the eggs and the blueberries. Incorporate well. Add the milk, sugar and vanilla. Mix it all well. Slowly pour the mixture over the bread, trying to cover all the pieces of the bread with the milk mixture. Bake in the oven for 40 – 50 minutes until golden brown and the center is set. A toothpick should come out clean when inserted into the center. Serve with warm or cold vanilla sauce. Enjoy! For the Vanilla Sauce: Heat 1 ½ c of milk over low heat in a saucepan. Careful not to burn/scorch When milk begins to simmer, add cornstarch, brown sugar, and egg yolks to the remaining cup of milk. Beat/mix well. Ladle a portion of the heated milk into the brown sugar milk to heat it slightly and temper the eggs. Slowly pour the brown sugar milk into the heated milk, whisking the entire time. Keep stirring while the milk comes to temperature and begins to thicken. When the sauce has completely thickened, remove off the heat and add the vanilla extract. Stir to incorporate. Notes If the sauce is a bit frothy, add a small pat of butter. This will reduce the foam. Keywords: Blueberry Bread pudding with Vanilla Sauce, Blueberry Bread Pudding
