How to Make Custard Bread Pudding Recipe


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees (175 C.). Grease a 13 by 9 inch glass baking dish.
  2. In a 2 quarts (1900 ml) saucepan, heat milk just to boiling over medium-high heat.
  3. Meanwhile, toast bread. Spread butter on 1 side of slices; cut each diagonally into quarters.
  4. In medium bowl, beat eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt until blended. Gradually whisk hot milk into egg mixture until well combined. Pour custard into baking dish. Arrange bread, buttered side up, on top of custard; sprinkle with nutmeg.
