Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I had oven issues and the bread pudding didnt quite set up in the middle for me. This happens when I bake banana bread so wasnt to worried about letting this bake longer then an hour and keeping an eye on it. Very nice flavor especially with the cranberry walnut bread I used. Added a little more cinnamon and nutmeg then used regular vanilla since I hadnt noticed I was out of vanilla beans. Want to try this again using cinnamon raisin bread. Made and reviewed for the tag game For Your Consideration.
