tonight's dessert - caramelized mango bread pudding

bread pudding:

caramelized mango
dried cranberries
1 loaf of challah
maple syrup
3 eggs
ginger honey
vietnamese cinnamon

cook, tear, whisk, mix, let sit, pour, cook, eat


ok seems some people might like a real recipe instead of my shortened version. if so then here you are:

2 mangoes, peeled and cut into chunks
2 tbl butter
1 loaf of challah or any egg bread or even a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread will work (3 cups of chunks)
2 cups milk
3 eggs
1/4 cup sugar (raw works very well)
1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 package blackberries

preheat oven to 350degF

in a large skillet or saucepan, heat the butter and maple syrup or honey until the butter is melted, add the mango and toss to coat. let this cook on low heat until the mango starts to brown and caramelize (stir only now and then making sure everything gets nicely browned).

in a large bowl whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
tear the bread into chunks and add this to the bowl, followed by all the other fruits.
stir and mash this down so everything gets properly soaked.

when the mango is done add it to the bread mixture and pour everything into a dutch oven or large casserole dish.

let this sit for a few minutes until the oven is ready.

cover and cook for 40-50 minutes or until it seems set.
