Breakfast Bread Pudding

1/2 a challah…. 2 people….something yummy for Sunday morning…. I made a bread pudding. Healthy right? Eggs, milk, cinnamon, maple syrup….all good.

I put this together Saturday afternoon and will bake it Sunday morning. But if you want to be able to make it just before you want to eat it,  or perhaps leave it overnight another time …I am going to suggest that you can throw it all together anytime & just pop it in the oven for approx 45 minutes to 1 hour. Baking time will depend on the type of baking dish you use & whether the uncooked bread pudding  is cold or at room temperature. I am using a loaf pan to bake this in so that I can slice it up rather than scoop it out. This puffs up beautifully when baked & is fluffy & moist. It isn’t too sweet since I want to serve it with maple syrup. If you are just going to serve this with berries & fruit, I would suggest  adding more maple syrup.

Here is the recipe

Breakfast Bread Pudding


4 eggs

1 cup milk

1 – 2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp  salt

1 tbsp maple syrup

4 cups cubed challah or any bread ***I had a half of a small challah which I cut into cubes


Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray

Preheat oven to 350f ***when going to bake it

  1. Beat the 4 eggs together
  2. Add the milk,cinnamon, pinch of salt & maple syrup. Whisk together
  3. Add the cubed bread to the egg mixture, mixing well & making sure that all of the bread cubes are saturated with the egg mixture
  4. Put the bread mix into the prepared pan
  5. options are… Bake immediately or cover & put in the fridge overnight.
  6. When you want to cook it….Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour

Serve with maple syrup &/or fruit

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
