Easy, Southern Bread Pudding


This Southern Bread Pudding is one of my absolute favorite desserts! It is simple to make and sometimes doubles as breakfast at my house.  It warms up well or can be eaten cold.


You will Need: 

1 loaf of French Bread (day old is best)
3 Eggs
2 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
3 cups Milk
2 tsp ground Cinnamon
3 Tablespoons melted Butter


 Beat Eggs, add sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, melted butter and milk.  Slice and Cube your bread and add to egg mixture. Stir to moisten bread. Pour into 9×13 pan.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

 Sometimes I add Bourbon Sauce to my bread pudding.  Makes it even better. This is NOT for kids. 

 You will Need:

1/2 Cup Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1 Egg, beaten lightly
2 tablespoons Bourbon (not just Whiskey it needs to be Bourbon)

Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add sugar and egg and whisk to blend well. Continue cooking and stirring constantly until it thickens. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in bourbon (to taste). Cool. Whisk and reheat to serve.  Bourbon Sauce is creamy and smooth and adds an extra bit of flavor and warmth to Bread Pudding.
