Classic Bread Pudding

Classic Bread Pudding

With its crusty golden top, custard-like inside, this Classic Bread pudding is a real homespun comforting dessert. One of the easiest and fuss-free desserts to make.
This recipe uses simple ingredients that you may already have on hand! A day-old or stale bread makes this pudding best, as it absorbs the moisture from the egg and milk mixture better. Some other options are French or brioche bread. Here’s what you will need to make this easy classic bread pudding recipe:

(serves 6)

2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 slices soft bread cubes
