Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Grease shallow 3-quart casserole with shortening or spray with cooking spray. In 3-quart saucepan, heat whipping cream and half-and-half to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in baking bar pieces; remove from heat.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat sugar, egg yolks, vanilla and salt with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add cream mixture, beating constantly, until smooth.
  • 3 Line bottom and side of casserole with some of the baguette slices. Pour 2 cups of the cream mixture over bread. Let stand a few minutes until bread absorbs mixture. Add remaining baguette slices. Pour remaining cream mixture, 2 cups at a time, over bread; let stand a few minutes until bread absorbs mixture. Place casserole in roasting pan; place in oven. Pour boiling water into roasting pan until 1 inch deep.
  • 4 Bake uncovered 45 minutes. Cover with foil and bake about 1 hour 5 minutes longer or until knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean.
  • 5 Place raspberries in blender. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth; strain seeds. Serve warm bread pudding with raspberry sauce and, if desired, fresh raspberries.
