Question about bread pudding

I have never had bread pudding
This recipe sounded really good. Is this the same procedure/steps you would do with other bread puddings.

Geez Stacy, I've made bread pudding and the bread was in cubes, this is calling for crumbs, so I really don't know what to say..The recipe sound tasty but who knows..The one I made had chocolate chips, bread cubes cream, pine nuts sugar and was great...Why not give this a try and see..I have my dessert for tomorrow done so I can't try it,,,you can though and let me know how it turns out.

Stacy, my mom made giant bowls of this stuff. It was one of my favorite's. I don't have her recipe, but I highly reccommend trying it! I remember she laid the bread out the night before so it would get stale. Then I remember her sinking each slice into the pudding batter. What memories!!!

Bread Pudding was a "staple" in our house when I was growing up. Mom always used big cubes of day-old bread, and soaked it in the custard before baking it, and the pudding always puffed up like a soufflé. I make mine that way, too.

That recipe looks good, but I'm sure I would make it with bread, not crumbs. Just my three cents....
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I had made a chocolate bread pudding with bread crumbs and it was more like a pudding and less like what you might think of as bread pudding. It was from Richard Sax's book, "Classic Home Desserts: A Treasury of Heirloom and Comtemporary Recipes from Around the World."

I guess it depends whether you want to experiment or not. You can always seek out a different pumpkin bread pudding recipe.

I usually use slices of bread in bread pudding. Here is a basic recipe
Bread and Butter Pudding


9 slices of day old (slightly stale) white bread, thickly buttered
3 oz of sultanas, raisins or currants
3 oz sugar
2 large eggs
1 pint milk
1 oz butter
nutmeg or cinnamon


1 Preheat oven to Gas mark 3 160°C 325°F.

2 Place the dried fruit in boiling water for 5 minutes

3 Beat the eggs in a bowl

4 Heat the milk, until just hot, then pour onto the eggs, beating the mixture together.

5 Trim the crusts from the bread. Cut the bread into quarters

6 Arrange half the bread in the oven-proof dish, butter side down

7 Drain the dried fruit, and sprinkle over the bread.

8 Sprinkle half the sugar over the dried fruit

9 Cover with the rest of the bread, butter side up

10 Pour the eggs and milk over the pudding.

11 Sprinkle the remaining sugar on the top, and cook for 50-60 minutes

Here is a link to a discussion we had on Bread Puddings a couple of years ago.

I've never made it, but I've had bread pudding many times, usually in restaurants - it's always been cut in cubes. With all the liquid in the recipe, it seems like the bread crumbs would get lost. The flavors sound great, though.

A neighbor made Giada's panettone bread pudding with amaretto sauce for a progressive dinner party earlier this year, and it was the best I've ever had.

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
