do you have a bread pudding recipe?

I want to find a really yummy bread pudding recipe to make my family. Anybody got one? Also do you have to use only stale bread or will any bread do? I make my own in a bread machine... will that work?

  • Pumpkin Bread Pudding

    3 eggs
    1-3/4 cups canned pumpkin
    1-1/2 cups milk
    1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
    1 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, optional
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    6 slices bread, cubed
    3/4 cup raisins
    1/2 cup pecans, chopped

    In a large bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin, milk, evaporated milk, sugar, butter, cinnamon, ginger if desired, vanilla, cloves and nutmeg. Add the bread cubes and raisins; mix well. Pour into a greased 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream. Refrigerate leftovers.

  • Any bread, really, works, but a heavier bread has a chewier texture.

  • I ususally use french bread and let it stay out at least over night. Even cutting it up fresh and letting it sit works good too. Instead of using just milk I use heavy cream AND whole milk. It makes it a lot more rich. That is such an easy recipie to make all your own. Some people add raisins and some add walnuts. If you like rich desserts then use the heavier liquids like cream. If you like the lighter ones use milk. Have fun with it.
