White Chocolate Chip and Peaches Bread Pudding
1 dry baguette, cubed (approximately 5 cups)
1½ cups milk
1½ cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons lemon extract
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 15-ounce can peaches cubes in natural juices
2 tablespoons of butter, cubed.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with non-stick spray. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream, sugar, lemon extract, and salt. Add 1 cup of white chocolate chips and the peaches, including the juice. Add the cubed bread and soak. Pour mixture into the baking pan. Sprinkle the top of the bread pudding with chocolate chips and butter. Stir ingredients all together, so that chocolate chips are evenly distributed. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with a side of whipped cream and garnished with fresh mint.
