Cinnamon Bread Pudding

There are several different variations you can make to this wonderful bread pudding. You could consider adding in some heavy cream or swapping in some challah bread. Personally, I don’t serve it with any sort of topping, but it would go great with a vanilla glaze! The options are endless.

Ingredients: 

  • Butter: pre-melted to help with the mixing
  • Brown Sugar: this will give you a hint of molasses
  • Milk: to really soak into that bread
  • Eggs: for a slightly thicker texture, like with French Toast
  • Salt: to cut the sweetness
  • Cinnamon Bread: also delicious with leftover cinnamon rolls!
