From the Test Kitchen

We're turning classic bread pudding into individual, handheld treats by baking them in muffin tins! You'll start by soaking fluffy challah bun pieces in a mixture of cream, sugar, warming spices, dried fruits, and more, then bake it all until warm and toasty. To finish, you'll dust them with powdered sugar and serve them with sweet maple butter.

Lightly grease 6 rounds of a muffin tin. Divide the filling among the prepared rounds, using about 1/3 cup in each. Bake 26 to 30 minutes, or until the buns are toasted and the filling is set and cooked through. Remove from the oven; let stand at least 2 minutes before serving. (If making ahead of time, let cool completely, then cover with foil. When ready to serve, keep covered with foil and reheat in the oven at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes, or until heated through.) Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the softened butter and maple syrup. Using a fork, mash until smooth. Serve the muffins dusted with the remaining powdered sugar. Serve the maple butter on the side.
