♥Grandma's Creamy Bread Pudding♥ This stuff will make you swoon!

Click on recipe photo to print
Getting a little cool outside? Are you feeling like you need a little comfort food? I've got just the medicine you have been looking for. This bread pudding recipe is the best I have ever eaten - and I mean EVER! Easy to prepare and heavenly when it hits your taste buds, this recipe will become one of those favorites you grab to make when the wind is whipping around the snow, there is a log crackling in the fireplace and the cat wants to curl up in your lap.

I have this recipe on my food blog but decided to bring it over here, too. It would be a shame for anyone to miss out on the goodness and yummy in the tummy deliciousness of this bread pudding. Easy to make and oh, so comforting to the soul. If you haven't already, take a stroll over to my food blog, Standing at the Kitchen Door. I add something new just about every day. All of the recipes have been l♥ved more than once in my kitchen by friends and family.

6 eggs
2 cups half-and-half
5 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound loaf of raisin bread with cinnamon. Pull apart slices into about 1.5" cubes. You can also cut with a knife but if the little ones want to help this is a great job for small hands. Place bread in large mixing bowl.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat the eggs well. Add milk, half-and-half, sugar, vanilla, and mix well. Pour this mixture over the bread cubes and lightly mix. 

Pour the bread mixture into a greased 9x13-inch glass baking pan and place inside large roasting pan. I use one of those large, disposal (I keep it for this purpose alone and it has lasted for years) aluminum turkey size roasters you can get at Walmart. Fill aluminum baking pan with warm water until it is about half way up the sides of the glass pan. Bake about one hour or until the top is lightly browned and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Remove from oven and serve warm, topped with vanilla ice cream or swimming in half and half.
This will make you swoon!

That bread pudding looks delicious. I used to make a tropical bread pudding, but haven't in a while. I'd like to try your recipe.

Your blog is so pretty. The pussy willows on the side remind me of my childhood home - we had a bush in the yard.
