Eggnog Bread Pudding

I love the holidays, but they can be a bit stressful. I think it’s partly because we are just so busy. From buying the perfect gifts, decorating, cleaning, cooking and baking, there is so much on our plates. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change the holiday chaos for anything. Instead, I meet those challenges with a positive attitude and hope for the best. The good news is that I’ve never been disappointed. Spending time with family and friends is priceless and makes all the extra effort well worth it.

One holiday challenge is last minute drop-ins. It’s awesome when friends and family pop over for a visit, but then I’m always thinking what do I serve them? The answer is you serve them what you have already in your pantry and fridge! I always have Dempster’s White Bread in my pantry and a couple of jugs of eggnog in the fridge. I suggest you whip up Eggnog Bread Pudding next time you are caught off guard by unexpected guests. It’s a recipe that is sure to impress!

    You’ll need Dempster’s White Bread, eggnog, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and vanilla extract. That’s it! Easy peasy.

    I use Dempster’s White Bread both on its own for toast and sandwiches and in my recipes. It’s super soft, high quality and always yields a fabulous result.

    The first step is the bread into six cups of bread cubes. It’s similar to how you would start out making stuffing for your Christmas turkey.

    After you’ve whisked the rest of the ingredients together, add the bread cubes and stir to combine. Then, let everything get happy together for about 10 minutes. The flavours will have a chance to permeate the bread cubes.

    My easy hack is to make bread pudding in a springform pan! It’s easy to remove and the pudding holds together beautifully.

    The recipe takes one hour to bake so you can visit with your guests while your kitchen starts to smell a wonderfully sweet aroma.

    I’ve made this recipe several times already and it turns out perfect each and every time

    To make it even more festive, sprinkle icing sugar on top.

    The icing sugar adds another element of decadence and adds to the festive presentation.

    I also added some fresh raspberries to give it a pop of colour. It’s such a pretty dessert

    Serve it warm from the oven with a big glass of eggnog. Each bite practically melts in your mouth. The flavour of the eggnog soaks right into the bread so it’s truly a heavenly experience to eat.

    Next time you’re in a pinch with unexpected guests or just want a dessert with mega WOW factor, this Eggnog Bread Pudding is a must-try. It’s a staple on our holiday menu because of how easy it is to make and how much it’s enjoyed by everyone who tries it.

      Made no sugar added and worked great. Used home made egg nog recipe that made 4 cups so worked perfectly and did not need to be pasteurized since baked. Just sub your favorite sweeteners for sugar. A sugar free rum sauce made it even better.

    2. Hi Stacie, I made this the other day and took it to work, for our Christmas party. I work in Long Term Care and everyone, plus my co workers loved it! Thank you, from Digby Nova Scotia

    3. Just reading other comments … I have to add my two cents lol….I used 1/8 cup sugar… 2 eggs.. a wee more cinnamon..I used fresh bread… grated nutmeg over the whole thing…baked it in 9/13 casserole dish, uncovered.. it was fabulous.. sorry Stacie
