Fabulous no fuss bread pudding!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together until bread crumbs are thoroughly wet, and mixture is smooth like thick oatmeal.
  2. Place mixture in a WELL greased crock pot.
  3. Cook on high for 4-5 hours, or until a knife stuck in middle of the"pudding" comes out fairly clean.
  4. NOTE: For the last 1/2 hour of cooking, lift the lid a"crack" by putting a spoon or fork between it and the pot, to let the excess moisture escape; otherwise you will have a clear liquid all around the bread pudding.
  5. Bread pudding should rise slightly like a cake while cooking, and be smooth on top.
  6. It should be fairly solid when done, like a very moist chewy brownie, or perhaps like a dense souffle.

Yet another ingenious use for the good old crockpot! I used a slightly stale loaf of Italian bread and made my crumbs in the blender and left in some chunks for texture. I omitted the rasins but kept the banana. I was worried it would be too mushy, but it came out fine! The next time I make this, I'm going to brown some apples in a fry pan in some butter and add those. Thanks s'kat for sharing this!

I used hearth baked bread instead of bread crumbs because I wanted a more soid pudding. Everything worked well except I believe the High setting for over 6 hours was too long for my crockpot because the edges all around burned. However if yu cut the edges off everything turned out just fine.

I omitted the banana, raisins and substituted some day-old (cubed) French bread for the breadcrumbs. This took me about 3 hours on the high setting. This was my first attempt at bread pudding and the family LOVED it. I also made (Vanilla Sauce) and served it on the side for whomever wanted it a bit sweeter. Yummo! Many thanks, s'kat!
