Ready In:




  • Place bread cubes, half and half, sugar, eggs, almond extract and almonds in large mixing bowl.
  • Mix until well combined.
  • Pour mixture into a buttered 9 x 13 inch pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F.
  • for 35 minutes or until set.
  • When pudding is almost finished baking, place butter in a saucepan and melt slowly.
  • Add powdered sugar and beaten egg.
  • Mix quickly so that the egg doesn't cook before it is incorporated.
  • Cook until smooth and incorporated.
  • Add almond liqueur.
  • Cut pudding into 12 squares and serve warm with warmed sauce and whipping cream.
  • NOTE: I found it easier to mix all liquids and sugar together first, then add bread.

    Oh WOW!! This bread pudding was totally decadent. Your directions were easy to follow. I used a whisk for stirring the sauce. I found it easier to keep the liquid moving so the egg wouldn't curdle. I only used 1 tablespoon of almond extract because I thought 2 would be too strong. The flavor was to my liking, but next time, I might be more brave and add more. I made this for family but it is nice enough to serve to company. Thanks Susan, for sharing a wonderful recipe.

    WOW!! Just took this to a winter party and got great reviews. It turned out very creamy and tall. I was glad I had used an extra deep baking dish.

    Since I'm not generally a bread pudding fan, this review is based on what my husband and family said at Christmas dessert: This is awesome! My husband emphasized many times last night that he really, really liked it (in other words, please make it again!). Some had with the sauce, some without. They all really liked this and complimented it a lot! I think it was the hit of all the desserts! I will make it again since my husband liked it so well. I can see how it can be frozen in single serving pieces, so I'll probably do that. On behalf of my husband and family, thanks for a great dessert!

    Wow, this was so rich and wonderful...I used homemade cinnamon bread and croissants instead of white bread and it was to die for....very rich but worth every bit....

    This was awesome! I had recently purchased Amaretto Bread Pudding from a new business in our strip mall who has had over 20 years experience as a cook for NC's Southern Seasons. Everyone raved about it. Took it home to my parents and they loved it (they are picky). I decided to try making one for myself, this recipe. I can honestly tell you, it's BETTER!! My BH & I loved it. It's easy, and even better the next day. I am going to take this recipe home to my parents instead of the new business. Totally awesome pudding, don't change a thing!!
