I don't think I have ever met a bread pudding I didn't like, it is one of my all-time favorite desserts.

I recently bought a loaf of Cranberry Walnut bread in the bakery department of a supermarket. I buy that bread often and freeze it then toast a slice or two for breakfast.

After trying to make room in my freezer, I took out a loaf that was in there and decided to try it in bread pudding... did I say YUM!

I hope you enjoy this as a dessert or breakfast casserole soon.

Oh my... this bread pudding is a mouthful of yum! The bread pudding itself is full of cinnamon flavor and yummy with the cranberry walnut bread. If you have an issue finding it, try the frozen food section. That's where we found ours. The magic of this bread pudding is the sauce. It's creamy and rich. The rum flavor is not overbearing at all, it's just right. Serving the sauce on the side lets everyone pour what they'd like (the more the better in our book!). The Test Kitchen

How to Make Cranberry Walnut Bread Pudding A La Yum!

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2Coat a large casserole dish with non-stick baking spray, I use Baker's Joy.
  • 3Cut bread into 1" pieces, placing them in a large mixing bowl.
  • 4Mix whipping cream and milk together. Stir in 1/2 cup of unsalted butter and cook over a medium heat until butter is melted.
  • 5Stir this milk mixture into the bowl of bread cubes. Let mixture stand for 20 minutes so liquid can absorb into bread pieces.

  • 7Pour into mixture. Mix well.
  • 8Pour into prepared baking dish.
  • 9Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until bread pudding is set and golden brown.
  • 10SAUCE: Put heavy cream, butter, and sugar in a saucepan. Cook on low heat until sugar is dissolved. Do not boil. Add rum extract and stir well.
  • 11Pour rum sauce over hot bread pudding just before serving.
  • 12Keep refrigerated in separate containers and heat before serving leftover bread pudding.
