When you have strawberries to use up and you need to feed a crowd, reach for this easy strawberry bread pudding recipe. Cubed French bread is soaked in a mixture of eggs, milk, cream, and brown sugar, then fresh strawberries are folded in. After baking, it comes out of the oven with crispy edges and a creamy, custardy center. A dollop of tangy crème fraîche whipped cream adds the finishing touch to this comforting dessert.
What to buy: Don’t use frozen strawberries in this recipe—they’re too watery and will fall apart.
