This simple bread pudding is an easy way to use up those bits and pieces that seem to lie around the pantry. Save a fortune and make this tasty pudding. I like to serve this with custard sauce but it goes well with whipped cream, ice cream, or also great on its own.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch round pie dish or cake pan.

  • Butter the bread on both sides and cut into triangles. Arrange a single layer of buttered bread in the bottom of the greased pan, slightly overlapping the triangles. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the sugar and all of the currants. Arrange the remaining bread on top, then sprinkle with remaining sugar.

  • Beat milk, eggs, and nutmeg together. Pour over the bread and press down firmly to compress the pudding and help the bread absorb the milk mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and set, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Use whatever you like - dried apricots, dates, prunes, raisins - the list is endless.

I love the simplicity of this bread pudding! It's very forgiving and you can add whatever you'd like. I usually add cinnamon and raisins. I make this again and again. Thank you for an amazing lifelong recipe! Read More
