Bread Pudding Recipe

I just wanted to save a relatively easy bread pudding recipe (and my thoughts about ways to alter it) from here.

Bread Pudding

Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 45 min
Servings: 12


  • 6 slices day-old bread (another recipe recommends French bread, especially -- good to try)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted (look up good substitutions for butter? maybe this is little enough that I needn't bother)
  • 1/2 cup raisins (optional) (raisins are gross -- maybe chocolate chips instead?)
  • 4 eggs, beaten (would egg substitute work, given my problems with egg? I imagine so)
  • 2 cups milk (could use 1% or non-fat)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar (look up good substitutions, such as honey and agave nectar)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Break bread into small pieces into an 8 inch square baking pan. Drizzle melted butter or margarine over bread. If desired, sprinkle with raisins (i.e., chocolate chips).
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat until well mixed. Pour over bread, and lightly push down with a fork until bread is covered and soaking up the egg mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until the top springs back when lightly tapped.

I love bread pudding, and it would be nice to be able to make a marginally healthier version for myself at home.
