Butterscotch Pear Bread Pudding/#FamilyBakingChallenge

I have to be honest, I have never met a bread pudding I didn't love. Ever since I had a bite of my first one, I have been hooked. Any reason to celebrate, and I am quickly putting the ingredients together to bake. So, when I was gifted some beautiful Butterscotch Pears from Melissa's Produce, I couldn't wait to bake these gorgeous desserts. This time I decided to bake these on my grill. My husband and I recently relocated back to the southwest, where our story began, and baking on the grill had always been my favorite way to bake, especially since you can use the grill year round. It is a lot of fun! I have also included an oven recipe. No matter which way you bake this recipe, you will love these moist and amazing tasting Butterscotch Pears from Melissa's Produce!


Butterscotch Pear Bread Pudding
(Makes 4)
(printable recipe at end of page)

4 tablespoon Butter
3/4 cup Sugar, divided
3 large Butterscotch Pears
6 cups stale Brioche Bread, cut into small cubes
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup Milk
4 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
Pinch of Salt



Rinse your pears, then peel and slice them into small pieces. You want them to fit into the baking cups you are baking them in.  

Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar and stir until combined. Add the pear slices, placing them in a single layer in the pan. Cook, without stirring for 8 minutes until the pears begin to caramelize.  Flip the slices over and cook for approx. 5 minutes longer until the fruit and caramel are golden brown.

While the apples are cooking, use a medium bowl to prepare the custard by whisking together the 1/4 cup of sugar, whipping cream, milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.

Spray four custard cups with pan spray, then fill each cup with a combination of pear slices and cream mix.

Sprinkle the top of the apples with cinnamon. Place the dishes in a heat resistant pan and fill the pan half way up with hot water, creating a water bath. Don't let water get in the cups. If you are baking this on the grill, heat your grill to 425 degrees. Once it is to temperature, place the pan on the grill and close the lid. Check on the bread puddings every 20 minutes, just to be sure they are baking well. Check with a toothpick, just like you would in an oven. Both recipes will take between 50-60 minutes. If the toothpick come out clean, they are done. 
If you are baking in an oven, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Follow the above recipe, and when it is time to place in the oven, bake for 50-60 minutes, checking at 45 minutes.
