Old Fashioned Bread Pudding

 Old Fashioned Bread Pudding

I love bread pudding, which is the only reason why I decided to make this rather basic recipe. Unfortunately that's all it was, basic. The bread pudding itself was fine, not very sweet. But the sauce was rather blah, it contributed sweetness but not much else. I'd make a different recipe next time.


Old Fashioned Bread Pudding


For the pudding

  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 4 cups day old French bread, cubed
  • 1/4 cup butter + more for greasing
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 - 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • dash of salt

For the sauce

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • dash of salt
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp rum or vanilla extract.


    Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8'x8" oven safe pan.

    In a medium saucepan, heat milk until scolding. Take off the heat and add the bread cubes and the butter. Let rest for 10 minutes. Add the beaten egg, raisins, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Transfer to the pan and bake for 40 minutes.

    Meanwhile, make the sauce. Put sugar, flour and salt in a small saucepan and place it on the stove over medium heat. Stir in the boiling water and cook, stirring constantly, until it's thick and clear. Remove from the heat. Stir in butter and rum or vanilla extract.

    Serve bread pudding with sauce, heating the sauce up if necessary.
