A yummy, easy to make bread pudding. A great dessert or good for Breakfast. I have been making this for some time my family loves it served with whiskey sauce (I included the recipe for the sauce).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan.
  3. Drizzle melted butter over bread.
  4. Sprinkle with raisins, if desired.
  5. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
  6. Beat until well mixed.
  7. Pour mixture over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.
  8. Bake 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.
  9. I like to serve it with a whiskey Sauce: Cook together for just a few minutes, VERY GOOD.

Easy and very good comfort food. I made the whiskey sauce and another lemon one. Was good with both. Great way to use leftover bread. I love bread pudding! Thanx Barb!1

Ms Gertz, this is the only recipe I use for bread pudding. I've made it many times and apologize for not reviewing before now. I shop for Pannetone during the Christmas season just to make your recipe! One Pannetonne makes 2 8-inch pans or 1 9x13 pan full. If using the smaller pans, one goes to a neighbor or to the freezer to savor later. The whisky sauce is a keeper too. Many thanks for posting as it is a comfort food that reminds me of my Mom.
