Recipe Tips & Notes

Stale bread works really, really well for bread pudding because it can absorb the liquids without becoming too soggy. Challah bread, French bread, or a homemade loaf of bread would also work well.

✎ At the end of the video, you'll see me pour some maple butter cream syrup over the bread pudding. I'm not including the recipe for that, because I wasn't overly impressed with it (I thought it tasted just like plain maple syrup, which was good, but not really worth sharing).

Originally I had thought to make this Maple Butter Cream Sauce, and I think it would have been the better choice. So if you're up for it, give that recipe a try! Or you could serve the bread pudding fresh and warm with some homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

✎ Some of you have been making this recipe for years and may notice a small change I'm making to the recipe– which is to drizzle a little milk over the bread before doing anything else. I liked the moisture it added to the recipe. But if you've been happy with how the bread pudding has turned out with no milk, then feel free to continue making it the old way!
