I don't know what it is with grandmas and bread pudding. But, when I have a grandma over for dinner and say I have bread pudding I see a big smile on their face. Just going to grandmas and giving her a Tupperware of bread pudding puts you in the will for sure. Now that I'm a grandma, I can't say I'd turn down this delicious bread pudding either. Make this for your Easter brunch, any holiday, or your favorite grandma.

This delicious bread pudding is going to bring you back to granny's kitchen. We loved the flavors of cinnamon and raisin that permeate the bread pudding. Once baked, the top is nice and crunchy. The homemade caramel sauce is the perfect complement to this comforting dessert. Your family is going to fall in love with this heavenly dessert.

Note: The bread pudding is thick. If the center is jiggly at 45 minutes, bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Grandma's Bread Pudding

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop the raisin bread and put in a large bowl. If the bread is not stale, then chop it and put it in an even layer on a baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 250. Bake the bread for 10-15 minutes. Let cool before using.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together everything EXCEPT bread and raisins.
  3. Now add bread and raisins and toss until thoroughly blended.
  4. Pour in a greased lasagna pan (a little bigger than a 9x13).
  5. Bake in preheated 350 degrees oven UNCOVERED for 45 minutes.
  6. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
  7. To prepare the caramel sauce, in saucepan combine sugar, water, and lemon juice.
  8. Bring to a boil.
  9. Turn down to medium heat and cook until mixture turns an amber color.
  10. Add butter and stir until melted.
  11. Slowly add cream. Stir.
  12. Drizzle sauce on as it's dished out, not on the whole pudding. If you want you can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the bread pudding and then drizzle it all in caramel sauce. You can also add 1 cup of finely chopped walnuts or pecans.
