Bread Pudding


Bread Pudding is one of my favourite deserts. What’s great about it is that it is not too sweet, but can be so delicious and luscious. I made one for Christmas Eve dinner with my family. It was a huge hit. DSC03830

I used up all the old bread I had leftover from my annual fondue party. (That post is coming shortly!)DSC03831

For the pudding, mix together a french-toast-like mixture.DSC03832

Don’t forget the cinnamon and nutmeg!DSC03833

I diced up the bread, and added some apples, for a nice flavour. DSC03834

Arrange the bread cubes and apples in the dish, and pour the liquid over them, and let it sit for 10 minutes. DSC03835

I decided that an extra little pistachio crunch on top would go a long way. DSC03836

So I crunched up some pistachios for the topping. DSC03837

Here’s the pudding before going in the oven.DSC03842

And here it is once it’s come out. photo(1)Serve with a dollop of homemade whip cream, and you’re good to go!

You will need:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 1/2 to 5 cups sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (or any other bread you have laying around!)
  • 1 apple, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup pistachios, chopped finely

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat together eggs, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk. Add sugar and mix until sugar is dissoved. Arrange bread cubes and apples tightly in a nine-inch baking dish. Pour liquid over the bread and apples and let sit for 10 minutes before baking. Sprinkle pistachios all over and bake for 55 to 70 minutes, or until crust is golden brown all over the top. Serve with homemade whip cream. Enjoy, a lot!

  1. LOVE bread pudding – and with caramel brandy sauce it is even better! Maria Iacobelli makes the best I have ever had with the Italian Panatone. This looks delish! Happy 2013! More yum to come!
