Bacon Maple Bread Pudding Recipe

Bread pudding got its beginnings in 13th-century England. It was a way for frugal cooks who didn’t have much money to use leftover bread, so it wouldn’t go to waste. This is why it’s still sometimes referred to as “poor man’s pudding.”

By today’s standards, bread pudding has moved up into the ranks as more of a comfort food than anything else. When you take a few minutes to consider all of the different bread and add-in combinations you can use for this recipe, the possibilities are almost endless.

how to make a good bread pudding

If you’ve never made bread pudding, rest assured it’s really easy to accomplish. Basically, you cube up whatever bread you’re using (day-old is better than fresh), melt the butter, mix up the remaining ingredients and pour the mixture over the bread. Baking time depends on the recipe you happen to be using.

You can just as easily bake bread pudding in a large casserole-type dish or in individual ramekins. If you choose the second option you need to decrease the baking time until the outside is golden. Another way to tell if the pudding is done is to stick a toothpick in the middle. If it comes out clean, you’re good to go.

Can you freeze bread pudding?

Bread pudding is one of those desserts that freezes well. That being said, it’s just as easy to make a double-batch and freeze half of it for later. Even better, you can freeze this dessert baked or unbaked… the choice is up to you.

If you freeze bread pudding already baked, let it thaw in the refrigerator for 8 to 12 hours and then just warm individual squares in the microwave. If you freeze it unbaked, thaw in refrigerator for the same amount of time and then bake as originally directed.
