PALEO & WHOLE30 BREAD PUDDING WITH VANILLA SAUCE
This PALEO & WHOLE30 Bread Pudding with Vanilla sauce will enhance the ending of any festive meal…or after any meal!
Bread pudding, also known as poor man’s pudding, has a history that dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries when frugal cooks looked for ways to use stale and leftover bread, not letting it go to waste. When I was developing the bundt cake recipe using my FRESH DOH Grain & Gluten Free Fresh Pasta Dough Mix, I realized the cake has a bread pudding texture. I decided to develop an actual bread pudding recipe using the DOH mix, knowing the texture would be scrumptious.
Many bread pudding warm sauces exist, such as those made with rum and butter, bourbon, caramel, and vanilla. Since you are following a Paleo and/or Whole30 diet, I’ve included a vanilla sauce. If you are maintaining a Paleo or Whole30 lifestyle, you may want to add a little alcohol to the sauce for that umami flavour bonus!
This recipe calls for homemade date paste which is allowable on both a Paleo and Whole30 diet. The paste is super easy to make and nutritious. Did you know that dates are higher in polyphenols than any of the most commonly consumed fruits and vegetables? Polyphenols neutralize free radicals, helping to reduce the damage caused by inflammation. Inflammation is directly associated with heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and a list of autoimmune diseases. Dates are also a good source of various vitamins and minerals, and fiber and contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. This recipe also calls for unsweetened apple sauce and fresh apples. Apple sauce is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. It is also a decent source of fiber and vitamin C. While the date paste and apple sauce are natural sugars, the bread pudding is unlikely to spike blood sugar levels. The reason is that the DOH, primarily made with almond flour and the fiber in the dates and apples helps to slow the digestion of the sugar in the dates and apples.
RECIPE TASTE PROFILE
Date paste is a great alternative to brown sugar in recipes. The predominant taste sensation of this dessert is sweetness from the date paste, apple sauce, apples, coconut cream, and raisins. The texture is dense and chewy like bread pudding!
DIRTY-BIRDY WINE PARTNER (FOR THOSE FOLLOWING PALEO, WHOLE30 NOT-SO-STRICT LIFESTYLE)
With the predominant taste profile being sweet, this dessert needs a wine with more sweetness, such as Tawny Port. Always make sure the wine is sweeter than the dessert.

The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate. Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that. The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven. The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition. This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler. So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven. Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
