Necessary Equipment For Dish
- Mixing Bowl: I used a large bowl to mix ingredients for baking.
- Baking Pan – I baked the bread in a 9×13 baking dish in the oven.
- Whisk– I Used this to mix the liquid ingredients.
- Knife– I sliced the bread into cubes with a sharp knife.
Main Ingredients For Dish
- Bread: This adds body to the pudding and gives it a different taste. It doesn’t matter if you want to use a fresh loaf of bread or if you had leftover bread in the kitchen. It will have the same great taste either way.
- Nutmegs: I stirred one teaspoon of nutmeg into the mixture, but you can also substitute it with mixed spices. Vanilla is also a good alternative, but it is already in the recipe.
- Milk: You can replace the milk in this recipe with an equal amount of soy milk or oat milk if you’re lactose intolerant.
All Ingredients Used
- Eggs: added to the mixture for structure and color
- Granulated Sugar: Used this as a sweetener.
- Bread: Incorporated as the main ingredient and also adds body to the dish.
- Milk: Used in the mixture for flavor and moisture.
- Nutmeg: Adds aroma, spice, and flavor to the pudding.
- Vanilla: Also used as a component to add flavor.
- Ground Cinnamon: Used mainly for taste but also added color to the pudding.
How To Make The Pudding
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees F and use a nonstick cooking spray to coat a 9×13 baking dish.
- Cut the bread into small cubes, then add to the baking dish.
- In a large bowl, mix the sugar, eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg until well blended.
- Pour the mixed ingredients on the bread in the baking dish and leave it to soak for 15 minutes. Ensure that you coat the bread evenly.
- Bake the pudding for about 35-45 minutes or until the center is firm and springs back when lightly pressed.
- Remove the bread pudding from the oven and allow it to cool.
Soak The Bread
You want to ensure that you evenly immersed the bread in the mixture; this will give it a rich taste. For this reason, why we leave the bread to soak after adding the mix for no less than 15 minutes.
Nonstick Spray Alternative
It’s understandable if you don’t have some equipment or ingredients while baking, and in this case, we will provide alternatives for greasing your baking pan if you do not have a nonstick spray. You can always use butter, lard, or regular oil. All these alternatives will perform just as well as the nonstick spray.
How To Store Bread Pudding
Bread Pudding will keep up to three months if stored in the freezer and 3-4 days in the fridge. If not stored correctly, it will start to lose its moisture after 1-2 days. Be sure to keep the bread pudding in a tightly covered plastic wrap or foil to prevent it from drying out.
