Homemade Bread Pudding Recipe
I love bread pudding. It is one of those "old time" recipes that your grandma used to make. It is simple and delicious but many of today's younger generation have never even heard of it. I want my kids to experience and enjoy the simple things too so I keep these recipes alive and I hope you will too.
1/2 loaf of old french bread 3 T. softened margarine
1/2 c. of raisins 1 c. walnut pieces
4 eggs 2 c. milk
1/2 c. brown sugar 1/4 c. sugar
2 T. cinnamon 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
You can use any type of bread for this and it doesn't even have to be stale bread. If you use regular sandwich bread, just use 6 pieces of it instead of a half loaf of french bread. Our local grocery store greatly reduces the price of their french bread after a few days so that is why I use it instead.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9" x 13" cake pan with cooking spray. Tear up your bread into nice sized cubes and layer the bottom of the cake pan with these. Then pour the melted margarine onto the cubes.
Now take your raisins
and your walnuts
and sprinkle them over the top.
Now in a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, the sugars, spices, and the vanilla together well and then pour this mixture over the top of the bread mixture in the pan. Be sure all the bread is soaked throughout.
Just place into your preheated oven and bake it for 35 minutes. It smells as great as it tastes! The top is just slightly crunchy with a softer underside. It is AMAZING and costs so little to make.
