Custard Bread Pudding


I received this custard bread pudding recipe from my husband's aunt, who has been serving it at her restaurant for years. It's great for people who don't like too much bread because it has more custard than bread.

1 9x13-inch pudding


  • 4 slices bread

  • ¼ cup raisins, or to taste

  • teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste

  • 1 quart half-and-half

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  2. Arrange bread in a 9x13-inch baking dish; sprinkle with raisins and cinnamon.

  3. Blend half-and-half, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and salt in a blender until smooth. Pour egg mixture over bread in the baking dish. Place the baking dish into a large roasting pan; fill the pan with boiling water halfway up the sides of the baking dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 1 1/2 hours. Serve warm or cold.
