We are completely enamored with food blogger and chef extraordinaire Brandi of Branappetit. One of our Previse fans told us about Brandi, and the same day we saw her on the Dr. Oz show demonstrating her Gluten-free, Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Cups – deelish!

We invited Brandi to share her passion for living “a deliciously healthy life.”  After a few short conversations we we are thrilled to announce that she is our newest guest blogger!


To start we’ve chosen her for “Vanilla Maple Breakfast Bread Pudding” as way to introduce Branappetit. Honestly, what better way to embrace the holidays and say goodbye to burgeoning waistlines, than a super easy recipe that can transform breakfast or desert into a celebration!

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 6 slices bread, torn or diced into bite size pieces
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or vanilla bean or vanilla extract)
  • 1/4 tsp salt



  1. Put brown sugar, butter, and maple syrup in the bottom of an 8×8 baking dish.
  2. Heat in the microwave 30 seconds to 1 minutes or until the butter is melted and the sugar starts to dissolve. Stir the mixture together until all the sugar is mixed with the syrup and butter.
  3. Put the diced or torn bread on top of the sugar mixture in the baking dish.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs.
  5. Whisk the cream, milk, vanilla, and salt into the eggs.
  6. Pour the cream mixture over the bread but do not stir!
  7. Press the top of the bread mixture into the cream to get every piece to soak in some of the cream mixture.
  8. Cover the dish with foil and let it sit, overnight, in the fridge.
  9. In the morning, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  10. Bake, covered for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 5-10 minutes

Yields 9 servings.

Thank you again Brandi for sharing your humor, passion, honesty… and super simple recipes.  We look forward to collaborating with you on future recipes that feature a few of our signature ingredients, like rosemary, peppermint, wasabi and [soon to be released]… pink grapefruit!

How do you Previse?
