How to Make Bread Pudding

*Time Warning. This dish has to sit for 2 hours in the fridge after preparing it.*

  • Grease an 8×8 pan and set aside.
  • Remove the crusts from the bread and butter one side of the bread. Arrange the slices in the pan overlapping each other, like shown in the photo above. You will fit 6 on each side, slightly overlapping each other.
  • Whisk together the remaining ingredients for the filling and pour over the bread, letting it soak in slowly.
  • To make the caramel sauce, place the ingredients into a microwave safe measuring cup and mix. Microwave on high for 30 seconds and stir to make sure there are no lumps. Microwave for another 15-30 seconds, stir and remove.
  • Pour over the top of the  bread pudding.
  • Wrap the pan and place in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight, if wanted for breakfast.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 °F.
  • Bake the bread and butter pudding in the oven for 50-60 minutes, until the interior is cooked and a knife inserted comes out clean ( I like to test that it’s at least 165 °F in there to make sure the eggs are safely cooked.) The top will be browned and puffy and delicious looking!
  • Remove and slice and serve with extra sauce, maple syrup, whatever your heart desires.

 The directions on my piece of plastic say “arrange in prepared dish, overlapping them so they look like one layer”.

So. Does this look like one layer to you? It did to me. Seriously. It took me a good 10 minutes of cursing under my breath to figure it out. Overlapping…yet one layer…one…layer overlapping…

This was a really good bread pudding, without a doubt. My son gave me rave reviews, “Mom, you make the best desserts ever!” when he tasted this one. It isn’t as sweet as one would suppose. Rich, but not sweet. You can also *ahem* add a little more of that butterscotch sauce on top when serving, for that extra little zing. I might also add a lot more while cooking it, as you can see in the video. With the small amount of sugar that is in the actual bread and butter pudding part, you can do a little crazy on top.

Bread Pudding Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • This recipe is better if you leave it overnight but sometimes you just want it the same day. Make it in the morning and then wrap it up, refrigerate it and make it for dessert after dinner.
  • You can skip the homemade caramel sauce and use maple syrup instead for a time saving delicious new twist!
  • Looking for another pudding recipe? Try my Five Roses Rice Pudding! It’s amazing!

I might also like to top it with whipped cream or ice cream. I’ll admit nothing. If you are wanting another recipe that doubles as breakfast, try my Scone Recipe: The Best Scones Ever  They are our favourite breakfast ever!

Happy Baking babes! This one’s a keeper!

Love,

Recipe Notes

If you want more caramel sauce it doubles, or triples or quadruples excellently! This is great for breakfast if you take it easy on the caramel sauce. Who am I kidding, it's fine as it is.

    Hi
    Your recipe looks delicious. I’m going to try it sometime. I have been looking for a recipe for bread pudding.
    Just a note: In your nutrition information, it says that a serving size is 1 gm.
    Do you think you could correct that?
    Thanks
