I do not know where this recipe comes from, but this is my favorite bread pudding recipe.
You can use any kind of bread. I even used up some left over muffins that made this dish, the best I ever ate. Even my husband raised his eyebrows and had a big smile.
My grandmother and mom made bread pudding all the time and I just love bread pudding.

How to Make Warm French Bread Pudding

Step-by-Step

  • 1Oven: preheat 350 degrees
    Beat butter and sugar until blended.
    Add eggs and blend well.
    Blend in milk, vanilla and spices. Mixture will look grainy.
  • 2Lightly grease with butter a 2 quart baking dish.
    Put in bread cubes and fruit.
    Pour the milk mixture over bread.
    Lightly stir and let set 10 minutes. Stirring if needed.
  • 3Cover and bake, 40 minutes.
    Uncover and bake for 10 minutes until top is lightly browned and pudding is set.
  • 4Remove from oven.
    Pour over top the maple syrup if selected.

    I have not used the maple syrup topping or the fruit.
    I have used leftover muffins. Slice like a loafs of bread and layer into baking dish. Kind of like how you would put on a dish to serve. Pour liquid over muffins and let set for 10 minutes..I did not stir.
