Bread Pudding Recipe - Easy and the Best!

Bread Pudding Recipe

Hey you! I’m so glad that you’re here.  If this is your first time here, you’re going to find tons of Slightly Homemade” recipes, home decor, and so much more around here!  Start HERE!

When I walked into my kitchen this morning, I grabbed my loaf of bread to make an egg sandwich for breakfast.

But to my dismay, the bread was a little stale.  Yuck!  So, I thought about throwing it in the trash, but I hated to waste it.  Then I thought about throwing it outside for the birds, but I remembered the last time I did that

The bread sat out there for DAYS, because nothing ate it, and it just got embarrassing when people would come over.  I’d have to explain why there were 50 pieces of bread serving as yard ornaments.

Easy Bread Pudding Recipe:

So, I began searching for an easy bread pudding recipe, that didn’t require a lot of funky ingredients, because I was NOT putting my toddler in the car and going to the grocery store.  Heck no!

How to make bread pudding recipe

I found a few good recipes for bread pudding, but they all had something that didn’t tickle my fancy.  So… I gathered all of the recipes up, and kind of came up with my own plan.

I love this recipe, because it only includes items I usually have on hand, resembles the old-fashioned recipe that we’ve all known to love, and I had it all put together and in the oven in a matter of minutes. It turned out to be the best bread pudding recipe I’ve ever had.


Recipe for Bread Pudding Below:

You can find the full recipe below with ingredients, measurements, and directions, but I love sharing step by step images to help walk you through the recipe in case you’re a visual person!

Bread Pudding Recipe - Easy old fashioned

You’ll start by buttering your 8×8 baking dish, and breaking up the bread into large chunks.

Toss the bread in to the buttered dish and set aside.

Next, in a bowl, mix together the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla.

I use my flat whisk for this and it makes things super easy!

(My flat whisk could quite possibly be my favorite kitchen tool in the whole wide world. I use it to whisk eggs together in this recipe, or for scrambled eggs, or even if I have a powdered mixture that needs mixed. It mixes it so well! You can see this must-have kitchen tool, along with every other “Must-Have,” kitchen tool in my post: My Favorite Kitchen Tools )

Next, simply pour the egg mixture over the bread pieces and make sure each piece has been covered or submerged!

Oh my… doesn’t that photo of the egg mixture just make you drool!? It does me, every stinking time I look at it.

Toss that baby in the oven and let it bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes.

  • 6 slices stale bread
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter 1 Tbsp + 2 Tbsp
  • 4 Beaten Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 3/4 cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and use 1 Tablespoon of butter to coat the inside of your 8 in. square baking dish.
  2. Break your bread (I made larger pieces, rather than crumbling it up) in to the buttered baking dish.
  3. Melt your remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, and drizzle over bread pieces.
  4. In a bowl, mix remaining ingredients (don't forget to beat your eggs first) until mixed well.
  5. Pour this mixture over the bread, making sure to evenly coat each piece.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top of the bread pudding springs back after lightly touching it with a fork.

Bread Pudding Sauce

For years I shared this recipe without a sauce or a drizzle. There have been tons of you who have made this and made your own sauce to go with it, and I must say… you’ve inspired me.

So when I remade this recipe to take new photos for the blog, I decided to whip up a quick sauce to see how it would taste.

Um… it was heavenly.

The bread pudding is great as a stand-alone, but I’m a fan of this addition now, in a BIG way!

How to Make Bread Pudding Sauce

It’s super easy.  Grab a small saucepan, and melt (on high) 3 Tablespoons of salted butter.

Once melted, turned it down to medium heat and wait a bit to let the butter brown. (Browned butter is my JAM!)

Then, I add in a tablespoon or so of brown sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Stir to combine and remove from heat. Let rest about 1-2 minutes, use the whisk to mix up the brown sugar and butter mixture and pour on top of the bread pudding.

The little chunks of brown sugar candied and let a bit of a crunch, which was the PERFECT addition to this soft texture that the bread pudding has.

    My mother used to make bread pudding out of bread “heels”, leftover biscuits, buns, etc. she always kept a bread bag full of old bread in freezer, ready for pudding. She made chocolate “gravy” to serve over the top! Still my favorite dessert! Try it with raisins, nuts and crushed pineapple, too!

      That is so awesome!! I love being able to use the normal “Throw away,” types of things, and utilize them for something good!! 🙂

  17. Lisa Lopez says:

    Growing up, I never liked bread pudding despite my mom making it often. She passed away 2 years ago and I never got her recipe. And suddenly I started to really like and crave bread pudding. I regret not getting her recipe and was intimidated by many online recipes. Then I saw yours and was excited to try it. It was the first time I ever made bread pudding and it was truly delicious. My family loved it too and it was gobbled up in a matter of minutes. I’m looking forward to making it again tonight and I just wanted to thank you for giving us a “real mom” suitable recipe that taste even better than many others. Thanks Jessica!

    1. Jessica says:

      Awww! Lisa!!! I think this may be my favorite comment ever. SO much heart and soul behind every sentence. Thank you SO SO much for the sweet words. I’m truly excited that you’ve found a love for it again, and that it filled a void of yours!! Thank you for dropping such a sweet note, and thank you for sharing your story too! XO

  18. Donna says:

    If you used a 13 x 9 baking dish and picture 8 eggs ready to be beaten, you doubled the recipe, right???

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Donna! Yes I double my recipe of this because it goes so quickly if I don’t. Haha!!!

  19. Mouhamed Mouallem says:

    I just made this with a little tweaking. I used sourdough bread, Caramel machiato muffins and stale banana bread, along with over ripened bananas. I finished it off with a simple icing glaze. Absolute ecstasy. The best dessert I’ve had in ages. The type of enjoyment where you just stare at your plate before every bite to appreciate the masterpiece over and over again. I wish I had vanilla ice cream to plop on top of this.

    1. Jessica says:

      Well that sounds absolutely lovely!! Thank you so much for sharing!!
      Vanilla ice cream would have been incredible. 🙂

  20. Beth says:

    I made it for the first time this week, kids devoured it, so making it again! This time I am adding some apple to it. I also used low fat milk and light cream. Thanks for sharing a simple recipe that tastes good.

    1. Jessica says:

      Aw, that’s wonderful to hear! So happy that you like it! Mmmm, adding apples to it sounds great!

  21. KB says:

    Haven’t made this recipe yet but I absolutely love bread pudding and usually just combine a couple of recipes to suit my taste. I’m ready to grab bread and try this now! I always make a warm vanilla sauce to serve with it, (sugar,whipping cream,butter and vanilla). Thanks so much for this simple recipe.

    1. Jessica says:

      Mmm! A warm vanilla sauce sounds amazing!! Thank you for coming by! I hope you like it!

  22. Kim says:

    Made it!!! Everyone loved it. So quick and easy…this is now my go to recipe

    1. Jessica says:

  23. Jillian says:

    I made the bread pudding for breakfast because in my country we have it with coffee or tea. This was quite simple and I was happy that u did not have to leave it overnight. I did used a peice of hard dough bread and whole wheat bread also I add nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice need to used it up. I also add the raisin and made some cranberry juice and it was killing me to throw it out so I decided to add it to the bread pudding my kids love it even the picky eater thank you.

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Jillian! Wow! That all sounds so amazing!!! I love how you use up so much of what you have on hand. I need to do that more often, and think more outside of the box! Love it! Thank you for sharing.

  24. Karyn says:

  25. Debra says:

    Was so good the first time so I’m making it again!! Love this easy and delicious bread pudding!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!

    1. Jessica says:

  26. Jeanne says:

    Do you have a sauce to put on it?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Jeanne! I actually don’t make a sauce to put on it, but others have and loved using a sauce!

    2. Joyce Laine says:

      Its called a hard sauce and very easy. Heat confectionary sugar butter vanilla and small amt if milk. Stir til well blended. I eyeball the amts til it has gravey consistency. Its an old recipe in Betty Crocker cook book. The old book. Don’t know if they have it in newer one! Its simple and good. Just pour over pudding.

      1. Jessica says:

        This sounds fantastic Joyce! Thank you for sharing with us!

  27. Adam says:

    How many servings does the recipe make?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Adam! This made about 8-10 servings for us! I hope that helps!

  28. Cindy says:

    Hi Jessica,
    In your picture this Bread Pudding looks fairly flat…my question is…Does this Bread Pudding come out as flat as it looks in the picture ? ? Or does the picture just make it look flat ? ? I want my Bread Pudding to be about 3 inches in thickness ! Will this recipe do that ? ?
    Thank You !

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Cindy! It did come out flat for me, when I used the baking dish that I used. But if you use a smaller dish, it could be thicker! You may just have to adjust the oven temp and time! I hope that helps!!

      1. Cindy says:

        Thank You, Jessica ! I saw the post just after mine and it just about said the same thing as You ! Thanks, Fran ! !

  29. Fran says:

    Hi, Jessica
    I made this yesterday and it was fantastic! I used 10 slices of leftover Maple French toast swirl bread instead. I increased the ingredients slightly and baked it in an 11×7 rectangular baking dish. It had more of a custard consistency, which was great. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

    1. Jessica says:

      Mmmm!!! Fran that sounds amazing! It’s so funny that you said that about changing the size of the baking dish! I had someone else ask if they could make it thicker. I’ll be sure to let them know that you did (by adding ingredients too!) Thank you so much!

  30. Jennifer Rausch says:

    It’s in the oven as I write! Think it will be great! Has all the winning ingredients!

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh good!!! I hope you love it! 🙂 Thank you for coming by!

  31. Susan says:

    Just made this. Very good. I added 2 cups of frozen blueberries and sprinkled sugar in the raw on top. Baked until knife came out clean. About 10 more minutes. Perfect. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Jessica says:

      Yay! I’m so glad that you liked it! I just made it again myself too! Blueberries in it would be amazing!!! 🙂 Thank you for commenting!

  32. Melissa says:

    I tried this today. Great flavor, but next time I’ll be doing smaller pieces and making sure the bread soaks up all the good stuff prior to cooking. It’s almost custard with bread chunks lol
    But still yummy.

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Melissa! Oh you’re kidding!? Well I’m glad that you still liked the taste of it, but yes!! Give it another try, it may turn out better! 🙂 Thank you for letting us know you made it! XOXO

  33. Angie O'Mara says:

    Have made this recipe twice now, and all I can say is I’m in love!!! So easy to make, and it’s absolutely delicious….added a few chocolate chips the second time for my chocoholics, lol. YUMMY!!!

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh good!!! I’m so happy that you like it Angie!! Thank you so much for dropping a note to let me know. And mmmm, chocolate chips sound delightful!

  34. Kristy says:

    Never made bread pudding before… but really craving it! Does this HAVE to be made with stale bread? I don’t want to wait to make it! 🙂

    1. Jessica says:

      Haha!!! I totally understand that! Nope, the bread doesn’t have to be stale! Go for it!

  35. Heather says:

    I picked up a free loaf of day old bread from the bakery which is twice as good since its hand made AND it was free! 🙂 I also had a few left over cannolis from Thanksgiving and the wrapper had gotten soft instead of crispy so at the last minute I decided to toss those in. I just kinda pulled them apart. I made your bread pudding as your recipe stated but I subsituted one cup of buttermilk and one cup of whole milk. I upped the number of eggs to 6, and I added pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. OMG WICKED GOOD!

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh my goodness! That sounds absolutely heavenly!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

  36. Deb says:

    When I was an undergraduate in college, there was a restaurant near my college that served bread pudding.
    It was delish! They served a warm lemon custard on top.
    It tasted similar to lemon curd but I’m sure it was all from scratch.
    They also put raisins in the pudding.
    Has anyone had this type of bread pudding or have any recipes for the sauce?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Jessica says:

      Mmmm! I haven’t, but that sounds amazing! A lemon custard on top sounds glorious! I may have to give that an attempt the next time I make it! 🙂

  37. Lakshmi says:

    This bread pudding came out really well! Was amazed how easy and quick this is to put together. Added golden raisins anad sliced almonds for extra crunch. Served it with classic vanilla ice cream for a pre-Christmas party last night and it was definitely a hit! Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe!

    1. Jessica says:

      Mmmmm!!!! That sounds amazing, and I’m so glad that you liked it! Thank you for letting me know!

  38. Janet says:

    Used a different recipe a few days ago & it was delicious 😋 but wasn’t totally satisfied. Needed to make something quick on Saturday and found this.

    I love bread pudding more moist than most and this is perfect! I added 1 diced apple and next will add raisins, too.

    I made the other recipe in muffin cups. Will do it with your recipe, too, baking until quite firm but not burned. 😃

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Janet! I’m so glad that you liked this!! Love how you added apple and raisins too! Thank you so much for sharing!

  39. Laura says:

    Wow… I need to start using ur recipe for bread puddin… I love bread puddin!

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh good!!! So glad you came by and found the recipe! Enjoy!

  40. Lizette Borges says:

    Why did you switch from cream to milk? Is there one that’s better than the other? I’d like a nice fluffy bread pudding, but I’m going to try this recipe.

    1. Jessica says:

      That’s a great question Lizette. I actually have used both, and it has worked just fine both ways. I use milk only because it’s usually on hand more than heavy cream… cheaper… and it worked just fine. But definitely a fan of ANYTHING with heavy cream. Lol! So it wouldn’t hurt. You could also experiment with using half milk, half cream if you like! I hope you enjoy it!

  41. Elle Carter says:

    I followed the recipe exactly and the result was amazing. My mother asked for seconds and my husband said, “I usually don’t like bread pudding but this is so good!” I could go on and on reciting the many compliments but suffice it to say that the dish was gone in under an hour. Next time I will have to double the recipe!

    1. Jessica says:

      Aww! This is SO good to hear Elle! Thank you so much for sharing how much you liked it! Makes my heart happy! 🙂

  42. Roberta says:

    I love bread pudding and was always apprehensive about trying it on my own. I came across your recipe and tried it for the first time and was amazed about how good it turned out that I doubled the recipe and made it again not even a week later. Only variation I did was add pecans and topped with whipped cream! Scrumptious, will definitely keep this recipe on hand.

    1. Jessica says:

      Oh good Roberta! I’m so glad that you like it!! Thank you for letting me know!

  43. Fazeena Hamid says:

    Im 18 I’ve made this for my family and it was yummy.. Thank you very much

    1. Jessica says:

      Yay! I’m so glad that you liked it! Thank you for letting me know!

  44. Karen says:

    I made this and it was delicious. I am making a 2nd batch right now. I made the last one with cinnamon swirl bread and this time with cinnamon raisin bread. I can’t wait to eat it!!!😀

    1. Jessica says:

      Mmmm! That sounds amazing Karen! Thank you so much for dropping a note to let me know too!

  45. Rosie says:

    You just made me a rock star in my house! Fam loved it!

    1. Jessica says:

      Woo Hoo!!! And it’s so easy too!! Thank you for letting me know!

  46. sVesna says:

    I made this with some tweaks and it is delicious! I had lots of stale bread, so I almost tripled the recipe, mixed milk and heavy cream (had some that was approaching it’s best before date) and used not as many eggs (I used 6 eggs altogether for 14 cups of bread) as I didn’t have more at home. Also, I used less sugar (about 1and 1/4 cup) as I wanted to serve it with vanilla and chocolate sauce. It is amazing, just had a nice big slice for breakfast, packed two slices for my hubby to take to work and will serve some to my friend who’ s coming to see me later. Now the biggest test – my toddler is about to wake up and we’ll see how it goes with her. Thanks, truly fantabulos recipe!

    1. Jessica says:

    Made this very simple to make Bread Pudding. So yummy. Breakfast at our house was extra special.
    I made with the leftover honey wheat “crusts” from tea sandwiches I had made for a get together.

    How much does this serve? Do you think I would have enough to serve 4 people if I cut the recipe in half?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Nicole! I think it would be enough to serve 4! That would possibly serve a nice square for each person! 🙂 I hope that helps!

    I’m making this tonight. Using Challa bread and a couple of bread ends. I LOVE THE COMMENTS. I’m a big fan of using what I have on hand and love the different ingredients everyone has added. And your recipe looks amazing. I’m sure my nephews will love it.

  51. Shimilia says:

    I am currently making this. So simple and easy. I was going to make a grilled cheese sandwhich and saw the end of my bread getting mole. So I cut it off and decided to try. So exited for this.
    It was so easy to follow.
    Can’t wait to tell u how it comes out.

    1. Jessica says:

      Yay!!! I hope you love it as much as we do! Thank you for coming by, dropping a note, and leaving a review!

    I never liked bred pudding as a child growing up.
    Thought I’d give it a try as an adult .
    I used day old cinnamon rolls and added alil shredded coconut and lots of raisins. Not bad at all . My daughter loved it .

    1. Jessica says:

      Yum! That sounds amazing! Thank you for sharing!

    I ‘ve made this using leftover stale danish. I cut back a little on the sugar. Have also made with using stale donuts.

  55. Abby says:

    Hello! I made this today and it tastes great but it’s pretty gooey. Is it supposed to be gooey in the middle? I’ve never made bread pudding before. Thanks!

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Abby! Well, it’s supposed to have a soggy bread type of texture… so I’m not sure if that’s what yours is or not. If it’s pretty gooey it may need to be cooked a little longer! I hope that helps!

  56. I honestly have never tried bread pudding before but it looks like major comfort food! 🙂
