Hawaiian Roll Bread Pudding


It's so fun to play with ingredients to make one-of-a-kind bread pudding. At it again, I created a bread pudding with a creamy bit of a tart twist. Incorporating buttermilk and cream cheese is surprisingly delicious! King's® Hawaiian rolls makes it especially yummy!

1 9x13-inch pudding


  • 1 ½ cups whole milk

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup buttermilk

  • ¼ cup melted unsalted butter

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 (12 count) package Hawaiian bread rolls (such as King's®)

  • ¼ cup raisins

  • ½ (8 ounce) package cream cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Mix milk, sugar, buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl until well combined.

  3. Tear each roll into 6 pieces. Add bread to the mixing bowl with raisins; mix gently until just moistened. Pinch bits of cream cheese over the bread mixture and fold in. Pour into the prepared baking dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
