Cinnamon Raisin Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is my go to breakfast or dessert when I’m entertaining large groups.

It’s quick,  you can make it in large quantities,  it’s inexpensive and most importantly its ridiculously decadent and delicious.   It’s also microwavable for days. You know how Chinese food tastes better the next day? It’s almost like that.

My friends who stayed with us in the Outer Banks this weekend have already emailed me that they are craving it again. Yup … and it’s just. bread. pudding. I dare you to not like it …. it’s impossible.

Sometimes I will throw in butterscotch or white chocolate chips, maybe even some coconut flakes. You could do so much with it, but never leave out the caramel topping.

Shopping List (serves 8-10)
1 loaf cinnamon raisin bread, cubed
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup caramel sauce (at least)
(if you add candy chips about one cup will do the trick)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl add your bread, eggs, milk, cream and sugar. Combine with your hands or a large spoon. Grease a 9×13 brownie or cake pan and pour in your bread mixture.

Bake for about 45 minutes to an hour, or until the edges are completely golden. Top generously with caramel sauce and sprinkle on some more brown sugar. Serve warm or cold  — either way its REALLY GOOD.

    I agree. You simply can NOT eat bread pudding without caramel sauce. My husband and I were just saying the other day that we’ve never actually tried to make our own bread pudding even though it is one of our favorite desserts. Cinnamon raisin might be a good place to start ;)

    Mmmm, bread pudding. I have been on a bread pudding kick this year. Meaning I have made two but that’s pretty good for me. It must mean I’m getting older because I always thought it was an old person dessert. Ah, who cares. Especially if more bread pudding is involved!

    Mmmm.. I don’t make all that many deserts but this one looks amazing. I think my two children will love this one.

    i’ve never made bread pudding because i’m always worried it will turn out dry and well, bread like. This looks so moist and almost brownie-like though!
    I’ll have to give it a try!!!!
    thanks for the recipe

    I bet this is amazing. Any time I have had bread pudding it was delicious but there’s something about bread pudding that makes me never want to make it or order it.
