Bread Pudding is one of those old-fashioned easy recipes every home chef should have on hand. It uses only a few common household ingredients and can be whipped up in no time! 


Units Scale
  • 1/2 loaf of day old French or Italian bread or challah bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 inch square baking dish.
  2. Rip bread into bite-size pieces and place into the baking dish.
  3. Pour melted butter over the bread.
  4. In a medium bowl combine milk, sugar, egg, cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir to mix.
  5. Pour egg mixture over the bread, trying to cover it all. Use the back of a spoon or fork to press the bread into the egg mixture so every piece soaks some up.
  6. Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown.


Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
