Warm Pineapple Bread Pudding

READY IN: 45mins
Top Review by La Gourmande

Dancer^, you never disappoint me! :] This was such a quick treat and it used up my homemade white bread which didn't taste quite as fresh anymore. I didn't have rum so I used some molasses and vanilla to add flavor. I also added a few walnuts. But this was a great recipe. Came out crisp on top and smooth throughout. Light enough for breakfast, even.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Generously butter two 8-ounce ovenproof glass pudding dishes and sprinkle the bottom of the dishes lightly with granulated sugar.
  3. Butter the bread on both sides and then cut into cubes.
  4. Using half the bread cubes, place a single layer in the bottom of each dish.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine the rum, brown sugar, spices, and lemon juice.
  6. Add the pineapple and melted butter and toss well to coat.
  7. Layer half the pineapple mixture into the dishes, followed by the remaining bread cubes and then the remaining pineapple.
  8. Sprinkle lightly with additional granulated sugar.
  9. Place the dishes in a shallow baking pan and pour hot water into the pan about halfway up the side of the dishes.
  10. Place the pan in the oven and bake about 30 minutes or until the puddings are nicely browned.
  11. Serve warm with dabs of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
