The Zac Brown Band recently revealed its signature pudding recipe with fans in Charleston, S.C.
More than 23,000 music and food lovers converged for the group's Southern Ground Music and Food Festival.
One of the biggest attractions was from Rusty Hamlin, Zac Brown Band's executive chef, who whipped up his chocolate peanut butter biscuit pudding. You should try it!
8 biscuits plain or buttermilk biscuits
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup cream
3 cups sugar, reserve 1 cup to sprinkle on top before cooking
2 servings semi sweet chocolate chips
4 tablespoons butter
8 ounces peanut butter
1. Crumble homemade biscuits leaving medium sized chunks in a large mixing bowl.
2. Beat eggs and both creams together and add to biscuit mix. The pudding mix before baking should be chunky enough to hold the chocolate chips but moist enough to take form to the pan. If it is too dry add more half and half, if it is too runny add more biscuits.
3. Add remaining ingredients for the pudding and mix well.
4. Place in a 9-inch x 13-inch baking dish and top with remaining sugar.
5. Bake at 400 degrees covered for 45 minutes – 1 hour. Middle should be firm and not runny.
6. Then bake uncovered for 10-20 min to brown the top.
7. While pudding is baking prepare the Jack Daniels Honey Sauce by adding all ingredients and warm.
8. Ladle Jack Daniel's Honey sauce atop before serving and garnish with any of the following: fresh berries, vanilla ice cream, caramel sauce, créme fresh or bananas.
