1 (1 pound) loaf
sliced white bread, toasted
I was looking for a bread pudding recipe that was moist and more on the custardy side. Husband says that most bread puddings are too dry. When I made this he was very happy! I took it to a potluck and everyone loved the recipe. I made it twice and both times it came out deliciously. This is a very rich recipe... the only thing I did differntly than the recipe is to increase the cinnamon by 1 tsp. I used what is called Hawaiian Sweet Bread. This recipe is definitely ONO and a keeper.
I thought that this recipe was way to sweet. It also was very eggy. It also needed more cinnamon.
I made this Christmas Eve and served it with homemade whipping cream and fresh raspberries. My husband's 88 year-old grandma said it was the best bread pudding she had ever eaten. It was so simple to make. I used vanilla challa bread from a local bakery which I think really made it extra special. I used a lot more than 2 pinches of cinnamon on top for a little more flavor but other than that, followed the recipe to a tee. It was very custardy. Simply delicious. I will make again and again.
I loved the taste and texture of this bread pudding. So creamy! However, it needed more flavor. I made a quick whiskey sauce and Oh Yum! Perfect!
I made it for my work, my husbands work, and my family... everyone loved it!!! I didn't butter the bread first or mix the bread in with the mixture, I layered the bread in the pan and poured it on top. I added butter last in slivers randomly on the top after it was all put together. I added allot more cinnamon than it called for, and in one of the pans I added a can of pumpkin into the mix. The pumpkin one was a SMASH hit! Thankyou for the recipe! For my first time making bread pudding, it was a foolproof, and an easy one to do! Happy Holidays!!!!
First, many thanks to all who took the time to enter a review. It certainly was a big help to me. I made the following changes: 4 qt (10x15) glass baking dish, 1 doz extra large eggs, 19 slices of cinnamon bread, 1 cup golden raisins which I placed in a bowl of very hot water (to plump up) for 15 mins, 3 tsp of vanilla and 3/4 cup of sugar. I let the bread soak up the egg/vanilla mixture for 15 mins before I added the other ingredients. Didn't need the cinnamon or nutmeg and didn't butter/toast the bread beforehand. Baked at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 20 mins. Very, very tasty!
This recipe came out very good but I kinda goofed through it. Mine was very thick & custardy with a nice crusty top even though after I realized I skipped the 'toast bread' step. Mine was already a couple of days old and nice and firm which helped to spread the butter and not smoosh the bread. I had to use about 3 cups heavy whipping cream and 2 cups half&half as that is what I had on hand. It wasn't grainy at all even without a water bath which I really liked. I also accidently dumped quite a bit of cinnamon after the shaker top fell off (oopsie!) but if this hadn't happened I think it may have been too bland. I will make this again with the same 'adjustments'. Yummy!
This is excellent! I took a shortcut and buttered only one side of the toast, but it turned out to be fantastic anyway. I also topped it with a vanilla sauce I found on another recipe website, and it made this recipe beyond belief. In case you're wondering, the vanilla sauce I used was: 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of whipping cream. Cook over medium heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1 tsp of vanilla. Wonderful!
