  • 1 C milk
  • 4 tsp. cinnamon, divided
  • ½ C Pioneer® Golden Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ C Pioneer® Sugar
  • 2 tsp. flour

Maple Topping:

  • 1 C pure maple syrup
  • ¼ C butter
  • ½ C (7 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla
  • ½ C water from the cherries
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan; set aside.

  3. In a small bowl beat the eggs, milk, and 5 teaspoons of the reserved water from the cherries. Gently mix with the bread cubes. Sprinkle the plumped cherries over the top. Sprinkle with 2 tsp. cinnamon.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the Pioneer® Golden Light Brown Sugar, Pioneer® Sugar, flour and 2 tsp. cinnamon; stir together. Sprinkle over the cherry mixture. Pour the melted butter over and sprinkle with the pecans. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside for about 15 minutes.

Maple Topping:

  1. In a sauce pan bring the maple syrup to a boil and boil softly for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the butter and stir until melted. Remove from heat and whisk in the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, cherry water and cinnamon.
  2. Cut the bread pudding into squares and serve with the topping and vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.
