Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce Recipe – Step by Step Guidea

Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce Recipe – Step by Step Guide: When searching through her stuff, we found my mom’s greatest bread pudding recipe in her Bible.

It’s a family tradition on the first snow day of the year, and if it doesn’t happen, which may be in central Virginia, it’ll be the featured dessert during Easter and whenever comfort food is needed.

Bread Pudding:

  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 10 slices hearty farmhouse-style bread, toasted and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup raisins

Vanilla Sauce:

  • 1 ¼ cups whole milk
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. For bread pudding, whisk together milk, sugar, melted butter, eggs, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Gently stir in bread cubes and raisins. Lightly spoon mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until browned and set in the middle, 50 to 55 minutes; cover the dish with foil after 30 minutes to prevent excessive browning. Let pudding stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  4. For vanilla sauce, whisk together milk, brown sugar, butter, egg, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a heavy saucepan until smooth. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until sauce is thickened and coats the back of a spoon, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract.
  5. Pour sauce over warm bread pudding or serve on the side in a bowl.
