Mmmm Bread Pudding

How many times have you thrown away stale bread? Well, I’ve done it too many times. Last night I decided to use my stale homemade bread in some bread pudding. I’ve never made it before and it was so delicious. So if you’re looking for a tasty bread pudding recipe or have old bread, this one’s for you.

I of course got it off of It’s the best site for recipes in my opinion. Here it is. Give it a try.

  • 6 slices day-old bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup raisins or craisins (because craisins are better) (optional)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk (I used 1 cup 1% and 1 cup vanilla soy milk)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. If desired, sprinkle with raisins.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.

It was a hit at our house. Jenna even liked it and she’s surprisingly picky when it comes to dessert. I think it will be breakfast too. Mmmmmm.
