A standard bread pudding is great by itself, but this one is enhanced with the tart flavor of fresh rhubarb and nuts. Serve with a splash of cream.

  • Place bread cubes into a buttered 2 quart casserole dish. Combine the milk and butter in a saucepan, and heat just to the boiling point. Pour over the bread cubes, and let stand for 15 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Stir in rhubarb. Pour over the soaked bread, and stir gently until evenly blended. Sprinkle walnuts over the top.

  • Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until nicely browned on the top. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Tips

This recipe appeared in Allrecipes Magazine as "Blueberry Bread Pudding," and used blueberries instead of rhubarb.

Very good-I never made bread pudding before. Will probably make again but will use a drier crusty bread like french instead of the sandwich bread I used. Read More

Not sure what went wrong maybe my eggs were to big and my bread slices to small who knows. But it was kind of soggy. May try it again after reading all the great reviews I was very disappointed. Read More

I like to find different ways to use my pie plant instead of the "usual" crisps cobblers and pies. And this recipe is the best I've ever found! I can't say enough for it! It's the BEST! Read More

Very nice, used frozen rhubarb. Liked the contrast of sweet and tart. Served with cream and brown sugar sauce if anyone wanted it, very well received. Read More

This bread pudding was the hit of the Easter parade of desserts! I made 1.5 X this recipe baked it the same amount of time and it was perfect. I served it with the custard sauce from Grandma's Bread Pudding on this site. Next time I'll add more rhubarb and decrease the amount of sugar in the custard sauce but even as is it is still a five-star treat! (I also sprinkled the top with sliced almondsinstead of walnuts because that was what I had on hand.) This is a good basic recipe to use with other kinds of fruits too. I'll have fun varying it.

A good bread pudding recipe and an original way to use up rhubarb. I liked the overall taste but I found it a bit too eggy. Next time I might use more bread and less eggs. Read More

This was the best recipe for eatting rhubarb. The cream made the pudding just the best. I have the fresh rhubarb to make again and some for the freezer to make later. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

So good! I am so excited to have found this great recipe to use my rhubarb in. I made it exactly as the recipe shows - except I didn't serve with cream. Tried it both warm and cold and it was fabulous both ways. Love it! Read More

Very good dessert. I used an extra egg and doubled the cinnamon. Also substituted hazelnuts for the walnuts because that's what I had on hand and it turned out wonderful. Served with a little heavy cream and everyone loved it. Read More
