What Kind Of Bread Is Used In Bread Pudding
You can use any bread you love in bread pudding - but we love to use breads with lots of extra flavor, like cinnamon, raisins, or other additions.
This recipe specifically calls for cinnamon raisin swirl bread, but you can use any bread that has cinnamon that you love.
When Is Bread Pudding Done
Bread pudding starts to brown around the edges when done - and will reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
When you insert a toothpick or knife in the middle of bread pudding it will come out clean when done.
Can Bread Pudding Be Frozen
After baking and cooling, you can absolutely freeze bread pudding to be eaten later.
I prefer to transfer bread pudding to an aluminum baking tray for freezing and easy thawing.
Bread pudding can last in the freezer for up to three months.
To reheat, thaw in refrigerator and then bake or microwave until piping hot.
For best results reheating bread pudding, add glaze fresh before eating.
Since bread pudding is baked with pumpkin, eggs, and milk, you can use stale/dry bread. Do not use bread that tastes off, or is so dry it is stiff.
Bread pudding is a mixture of chunks of bread, eggs, milk, and other flavors, that becomes soft and puffy when cooked. Bread pudding is sweet and can be served for breakfast or dessert.
Bread pudding is fabulous with a sugary glaze, scoop of ice cream, or heaping dollop of whipped cream on top.
