¼cupeggnogdairy, almond or coconut-based will work
½teaspoonGF vanilla extract
3tablespoonpecanschopped (optional, or sub raisins)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease 4 wells of a muffin tin and set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the egg, eggnog, brown sugar, vanilla and spices. Add the bread to the bowl and stir to combine, then add the pecans and stir again. Allow the mixture to stand for at least 5 minutes, so the bread can absorb the eggnog mixture.
Divide the batter evenly among the 4 prepared muffin wells. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
While the bread pudding is baking, combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan, and warm over low heat until the sugar crystals dissolve, stirring often, being careful not to burn. If you’d like a smoother sauce, finish it with 2 teaspoons of butter or coconut oil.
When the puddings are done baking, allow them to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then gently pop them out, drizzle with the sauce, and enjoy.
Make it Dairy-Free with dairy free bread and eggnog.
