Ingredients to make Bread Pudding

  • 6-7 slices of white bread, broken into bite size pieces
  • 1 & 3/4 cup warm milk
  • 4-5 tbsp sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • Pinch of cinnamon powder or about 1/8 – 1/4 tsp
  • Few chopped nuts of your choice (almonds, cashews, raisins), purely optional {I didn’t use}
  • Few dried cranberries, blueberries or raspberries as per your choice (I used dried cranberries)
  • 2-3 tbsp melted butter, to be used for greasing the baking dish and the remaining will be used in the pudding

How to make Bread Pudding

  1. Grease the baking dish and layer it with the bread pieces till all bread pieces are done. In case, you want to have nuts and fruits in each layer, you can add them between the bread pieces.
  2. In a mixing bowl, break the eggs and whisk well with the sugar. No need to use electric beater. Normal whisk will do the trick.
  3. Slowly add warm milk in the egg mixture and keep on mixing. Make sure the milk is not too hot, else it will curdle the eggs. Now add cinnamon and mix well.
  4. Pour the above egg and milk mixture on the bread pieces in the baking dish. Keep pressing the bread pieces with the spatula so that the bread is easily soaked in the mixture. Add melted butter on the top and press again.
  5. Add nuts and fruits as the topping. Press them lightly.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 35-40 minutes till the top gets nicely crisp and brown and the pudding is set. Test it by inserting a knife; if it comes out clean, it’s done.
  7. The pudding will be crispy from the top and soft from inside. The pudding will rise very nicely in the oven and will deflate the moment u take it out from the oven, so no need to panic.

My Tip:

A whole lot of customisation can be done to this pudding – make it with your regular white bread or sweet fruit bread, and consider adding fresh or dried fruit; spices like cinnamon, and cardamom; or a handful of chocolate chips or butterscotch nuts or dry fruits like raisins, almonds or walnuts before baking for a totally divine dessert. Serve your bread pudding with custard, maple syrup caramel sauce, or chocolate sauce or eat it as it is; it tastes equally delicious.
