Bread Pudding Recipe

Bread pudding is simply cubed stale bread that has been soaked in a milk, sugar, and egg combination before being baked. The end product is similar to the creamy middles of a stack of French toast.

The sauce is what makes bread pudding into the realm of genuinely exquisite dessert. Serve the pudding with a caramel sauce, a vanilla sauce, or a hard sauce, such as the one in this recipe, which includes bourbon whisky.

To make the Bread Pudding

  • 6 cups stale bread, cubed (challah, brioche, regular sliced)
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar (207g)
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

To make the Vanilla Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 pound of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. Set aside an 8-inch casserole dish that has been greased.

  2. Cut the bread into 1-inch slices and equally distribute them in the bottom of the casserole dish.

  3. Whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large mixing dish. Pour the liquid evenly over the bread, making sure to moisten all of it.

  4. Allow the bread to soak in the milk and egg mixture for 20-25 minutes.

  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C) in the meantime. 50-55 minutes in the oven It should be set but jiggly. If the middle hasn't entirely risen, it may require a little additional baking time. When done, remove from oven.

  6. Make the vanilla sauce while the bread pudding is baking. In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter, then add the sugar, cream, and vanilla essence.

  7. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
  8. Remove the sauce from the heat and pour it over the bread pudding while still warm.
