Cinnamon Bread Pudding

Cinnamon Bread Pudding via Byrd Bites

When I first heard about bread pudding, I likened it to strange food combinations such as pineapple and cheese, or blueberry scrambled eggs (yes, people do eat those things). It wasn’t until I finally tried bread pudding, however, that I realized it was not only super tasty but easy to make. And in my book, those are two of the winning factors of a recipe worth making.

Recipe adapted from Mikey’s In My Kitchen.

Ingredients:

Pudding:

  • 4 cups bread, chopped into small pieces (I used a two bolillo rolls)
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Sauce:

  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Pudding directions:

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8×8 baking dish.

In a bowl, mix together eggs, milk, melted butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla.

Pour chopped bread into the mixture and let the bread soak up the liquid for about 5 minutes. Pour soggy bread mixture into the greased pan and bake uncovered for 50 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven and serve with sauce.

Sauce directions: 

Combine sauce ingredients (except vanilla) in a saucepan.

Heat ingredients until melted, and bring to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Drizzle on hot bread pudding.
