How to Make Gingerbread Bread Pudding With Eggnog Sauce

Step-by-Step

  • 1If preparing gingerbread cake from mix, make and bake according to box directions.
  • 2Once the cake is cooled, cut into cubes.
  • 3Allow cake to sit uncovered overnight or place on baking sheet and toast in 250 oven for about 25 minutes.
  • 4You want the gingerbread cake to be stale or some what dried out so that it soaks up all of the liquid.
  • 5Combine milk, eggs, cinnamon, ginger, salt, vanilla extract and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until ingredients are combined.
  • 6Add cubed gingerbread to mixture, pressing down to make sure all of bread is covered. Place in the refrigerator to soak for 45 minutes.
  • 7Preheat the oven to 350.
  • 8Prepare an 8 inch square pan by placing butter in the baking dish and putting it in the heated oven.
  • 9Allow butter to melt and remove dish from the oven.
  • 10Pour soaked bread into prepared baking dish.
  • 11Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until bread pudding is set.
  • 12While bread pudding is baking, make the eggnog sauce.
  • 13Add eggnog and flour to a saucepan, whisk together. Add butter, sugar and nutmeg.
  • 14Heat mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently until mixture comes to a boil.
  • 15Boil for 2 minutes. Remove mixture from the heat and mix in vanilla. Set aside.
  • 16When bread pudding is set, remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Serve with eggnog sauce.
  • 17This bread pudding does not call for a lot of sugar because the sauce adds sweetness, if you do not plan on serving a sauce with this recipe, I would suggest increasing the brown sugar to 1/2-3/4 cup depending on how sweet you want your bread pudding to be.
