COOK TIME
1 Hr 30 Min

If you believe that the way to their hearts is through their stomachs, serve this along with a glass of cold milk or maybe some refreshing iced tea. You should enjoy this one while relaxing with the ones you love best!

What You'll Need

  • 3 slices white bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

What to Do

  1. Preheat the over to 350 degree F. Place the bread in a 11/2-quart casserole dish that has been coated with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the milk, eggs, granulated sugar, butter, and salt; mix well. Pour over the bread and let sit for 5 minutes until absorbed by the bread. Place the casserole dish in a large baking pan of hot water, with just enough water to go halfway up the sides of the casserole dish.

  3. Bake for 80 to 90 minutes, or until the top is set and golden. Carefully remove from the hot water bath and allow to cool for 20 minutes.

  4. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours before serving. When ready to serve, sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Not a fan, sorry. I love brioche bread which stands up to the liquid. Chocolate chips and nutmeg added for warmth. Rum sauce over the top just finishes it off nicely. I tried it your way and it was just a mushy sweet mouthful.

only three slices of bread- that can't be right ??

I have never baked any bread pudding in a pan half full of water and it is always perfectly fine. This is a popular dessert in the south and we grew up with it. I don't recall my mom or her mother ever baking it in a pan of water either and it was great. We all did use some vanilla extract and a generous sprinkle of nutmeg which is wonderful.

I have always made my bread pudding in a large Pyrex bowl. Have never done the waterbath method and it has always turned out fine. My favorite is to add 1/3 cup cocoa powder to the liquid mixture. We would serve the chocolate version with a "hard sauce" much like a buttercream frosting. Yum!!!

I think this is the proper way to make bread pudding, except personally I would not add confectioners sugar...personal taste.....Thank You... I finally found a great recipe!

We love it. I added 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. I gave it a lot of flavor.

One important thing to consider if you have an exposed heating element in your oven, use the. WAter bath method but if your heating element is. Underneath the oven floor. Just bake it without the water bath. Otherwise the bottom of the bread pudding will not firm up and will be soupy. I know because it happened to me

This is really a good recipe used leftover Italian rolls and it came out delish.....check after an hour..then every five minutes or so.....too dry if you leave for full time

i asked if the recipe fpr custard bread pudding be baked without putting it in a larger pan halfway with hot water ?

I have not made this one yet. But outhers one i have baked with out adding the water. they turn out good a little more crusty. But my husband likes it that way.

Only put it in a water bath if you hav an exposed heating element on the bottom of your oven otherwise it won't firm up.

can this recipe be baked without putting it in the larger pan filled hslf way with hot water?

Definitely use day old bread at least, I keep the left over slices in freezer until enough to make one, add splash of vanilla, and cinnamon per your taste. YUMMY

I HAVE BEEN WONDERING HOW YOU MAKE BREAD PUDDING SO THIS IS GREAT FOR ME.

SQUAW - - disabled so this is really good for me

I ALSO ADD A FEW RAISINS TO THE BREAD PUDDING, AND A TEASPOON OF REAL VANILLA (GOT MINE FROM MEXICO) THIS IS A REAL GOOD ONE FOLKS.
