Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Toast bread pieces for best flavor. For a richer pudding, use a higher-percent-fat dairy product. Cream can be used to create a richer pudding, vanilla soy or rice milk can be used, but plain soy milk affects the taste. Spiced or cinnamon raisin bread can be used; if using, omit spices and/or raisins. Apple chunks can be substituted for raisins; reduce milk if using apple chunks. White, brown, or maple sugar can be used. If you want more of a maple-flavor, add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon maple extract or flavoring.

This was awesome! I halved the recipe so that it would fit into my 2qt. slow cooker. I used a loaf of homemade Irish soda bread, and that worked out great! To the mix, I also added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. I mixed all the wet ingredients in a bowl, then added the bread cubes to coat in the egg mixture, before putting it into my cooker. I may have left it on a bit longer than called for and then just put it on warm until I was ready to serve it. Very moist, and great flavor I think I would maybe add a bit more sugar if using plain bread, but since the Irish soad bread was already sweetened, it was fine...I can't believe this dessert came out of a crockpot, lol. This is a keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

I used raisin bread -maybe that was what ruined it. It was really not good at all.

Mine is still cooking but I snuck a taste. It is out of this world good. Reminds me a lot of Raglan Road's (Disney World). I cannot wait for it to be done. I used Pepperidge Farm's hearty cut white and toasted it as suggested. I added cinnamon and just a little more vanilla. I only had skim milk so I used 1 cup skim and one cup half and half. Sooooo easy. Thank you so much for the recipe.

I doubled the recipe. I added cinnamon and vanilla. I will increase the amount of nutmeg and cinnamon next time. I did use the raisins. I will LIGHTLY spray cooking spray in the crock next time. Everyone loved it!

I knew I had to try this recipe, but I also knew I would make a few changes right off the bat. I used 1/2 cup brown sugar in place of the white sugar, I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg, and I upped the vanilla extract to 1 teaspoon. So, so good!!! I did use the raisins (a must for me in bread pudding!), but because this was going to be a dessert for us, I soaked the raisins in rum for about 1/2 hour before adding to the crock pot (SO good!). But next time I might also throw in some chopped apples just for variety. Anyway, this is a great recipe (that I tweaked to my personal preference, but I bet it is also great as written). Oh, and I also sprayed my crock pot with butter flavored non-stick spray prior to adding ingredients and cleanup was a breeze!

WOW! This turned out great! I used a 4 Qt. crockpot and increased the servings to 8. I did toast my bread(a whole loaf of Pep. farm naturals honey oat). I added about 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 Tbsp. of real maple syrup. I also switched the nutmeg to cinnamon, just because of personal preferance. I also served additional maple syrup on the side. I didn't need it as I felt is was sweet enough, but others added a bit. I can't wait to make this again, and again, and again!!! Next time I will spray the sides of the crockpot with cooking spray, especially if I plan to keep it on warm for any period of time. Thanks for this awesome, and super easy recipe!!!

I made this recipe about a month ago and I used wheat bread instead of white. I also used golden raisins instead of the regular ones. My bread pudding tasted more like a healthy version of bread pudding instead of something more dessert-ish. Those who want a warm or cold breakfast with a more rustic and earthy appeal, try what I did. I should write this recipe out since it is different. Forgive me. Cheers!

I had made zucchini bread and forgot to add the salt and baking powder (duh!!!)... Anyway, this was the perfect fix for my problem (not so tasty zucchini bread). I added the salt that I forgot and used evaporated milk. I made whiskey sauce to pour over before serving it. My husband and I finished it off in 4 days, it was delicious !!! Thanks for sharing this fabulous easy recipe with us.
