Berry Bread Pudding

Creamy Bread Pudding. How about Creamy Bread Pudding in the crock?? It can't be done you say? Oh, but it can. And here's how!!

6 cups bread, sourdough works best, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
1 cup raisins
6 large eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups milk (try to use 2%)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
2 cups fresh blueberries

Coat slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray or butter. Add bread, almonds and raisins and toss to combine.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour egg mixture over bread mix in the crock. Cook on low 4 hours.

Remove crock insert from the metal base and allow bread pudding to cool and set before you serve it. Serve with fresh berries!!

*To make this as a dessert, increase brown sugar to 2 cups.
