Bread Pudding

403B1D7F-F7AB-4080-8A05-49E0CCEDE3F6Bread pudding has been around for centuries. Way back when, it was considered a poor mans pudding. They would make it by using up their stale bread which is exactly what I did! Bread Pudding can be eaten with or without the sauce on top. We ate it right out of the oven while it was still hot and it tasted absolutely delicious!

  1. Looks good! I make a similar version using the cinnamon raisin bread. Would like to try yours using that nice brioche bread from Aldi. Bread pudding gets everyone in my family who is diabetic in trouble with their #’s. 😞 They just love it so much they don’t care for one day.

  2. Love Bread Pudding. There’s so many versions of it – way back when I used to work as a cook in a retirement village it was one of the staples that I used to make weekly in one form or another. I’ve also made it at home for guests, with a good dash of whiskey in it. It’s 6.30 in the morning, and reading your post has me salivating….
