Bread pudding

I am looking for a bread pudding recipe. Can anyone help me out with a tried and true one that you can highly recommend.
Sorry if this is in the wrong catagory, I wasn't too sure where to place it.

A long time ago, Mudbug posted the recipe that her mom has always used. I couldn't find searching but I can vouch that this is it and it's excellent! It's a basic one that I'm sure you could change up however you want (adding chocolate, dried fruit, etc).

Bread Pudding

Heat 2 cups milk to scalding

Pour over 4 cups coarse bread chunks (this is where your stale bread comes in - note that the bread should be COARSE, i.e., torn up pieces—chunks-- rather than "crumbs")

Cool and add:
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins (chopped up apple bits are good, too)
1 tsp each cinnamon and nutmeg

Pour into buttered casserole. Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes. Makes six servings.

I can't find the posting with my favorite banana bread pudding recipe ( I know it was 2+ years ago, so maybe that's why!)

However, here's one I've been making for a year or so.

Cinnamon Almond Bread Pudding

1 loaf good sourdough, cut into 1"x2" cubes (about 6 cups)
3 c. milk
4 eggs
2/3 c. granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. cinnamon (I may have even used more)
1 tsp. nutmeg
2/3 c. almond meal (from Trader Joe's, or you can blenderize almonds to a fine grind)
3 Tbsp. butter

Put bread cubes into a 9"x12"x2" pan.
In a blender, mix next ingredients well.
Add almonds and mix again till just incorporated.
Pour mixture over bread. Mix to make sure all bread is coated. Let sit for 20 min. (Preheat oven now to 300 degrees)
Cut cold butter into 1/2" cubes and dot bread with them. Cover with foil.
Place pan into a larger pan. Add water to a depty of 1" in the larger pan. Bake 1 hour, 10 minutes. Remove the foil and bake uncovered another 15-20 minutes, or till set.

Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Store in refrigerator.

Another good idea is to make bread pudding out of leftover zuchinni bread, pumpkin bread, banana bread, date bread, nut bread....the list goes on

Over the last couple of years, I've posted a number of bread and butter pudding recipes - including Delia Smith's absolutely great one with marmalade! If you do a search from the dark blue bar above, and key in bread and butter pudding, you'll find loads of recipes from lots of the members here.

Once you have a basic B&B pudding recipe, you can adapt it many ways. Try scattering chocolate buttons thru' it, adding sliced banana;s and putting a slosh of rum in with the egg/cream mix.
I love a lemon meringue one. Just sprinkle lemon zest over the pudding along with some granulated sugar. Put meringue on top and Bobs ya uncle!
I most always use croissants or brioche these days and a 1/2 and 1/2 or all cream mix. You can imagine that we DO NOT have this often.


In the book of life, the answers are NOT in the back.
