Bread Pudding is a tasty dessert with a creamy vanilla pudding. This classic is made with leftover sliced bread (includes end pieces).
Genius idea! No need to waste food.
Easy to make with simple ingredients.
Stale slices of wheat bread are “dried” in a 350 degree preheated oven for 4 minutes before using in this recipe.
Thoroughly dry stale bread makes the pudding firm. Soft stale bread will make it mushy.
The dried bread slices are torn into small pieces and placed in an ungreased baking dish.
SHOULD RAISINS BE SOAKED BEFORE USING IN A RECIPE?
In this recipe, raisins (optional) should be soaked in hot water for 15 minutes to make them plump.
After soaking the raisins, drain the water. Pat dry with a paper towel before using.
The pudding is easy to make with a few ingredients.

How To Read & Follow A Recipe: Tips for Beginners
Reading a recipe is an important life skill that requires properly reading a recipe’s ingredients, and instructions. Plus, knowing how to prep ingredients and what equipment to use.
Start with clean hands and organized kitchen. Wash hands thoroughly. Make sure kitchen and countertops are clean before making a recipe.
Create a relaxing environment. Play favorite music while in the kitchen. I love listening to classical or gospel music.
Read the entire recipe so you understand it and to make sure you have each ingredient.
If you see ingredient that you and your family don’t use for whatever reason, use a substitute.
Watch Recipe Videos. If you’re a visual learner (like me), watching a video tutorial is a great way to see how a recipe is made.
Mise en place is a super time saver. This French cooking term translates as “putting in place.” It means prepping/measuring ingredients and chopping food before you start cooking.
Make notes in your recipe. Note any special prep instructions, cooking time, ingredients omitted, favorite substitutions, and creative twists.
Notes will be helpful the next time you make this recipe.
