This simple Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Pudding is a cross between breakfast and dessert, and basically the best use of cinnamon-raisin bread ever. Super easy to make with just a few ingredients!
Up until I shared my Blueberry and Raspberry Croissant Puff recipe, I didn’t think I’d ever had bread pudding. But so many people who have made it, come back to comment on Facebook, “Such delicious bread pudding!” So, apparently that recipe is bread pudding. I had no idea. It did make naming this new recipe easier, though! Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Pudding, it is. And it’s also amazing. If you liked the fruit croissant puff, you’ll love this one, too.
I buy cinnamon swirl bread all the time. Then store it in the garage refrigerator…and forget it’s there. I actually bought a loaf a few weeks ago, originally planned for something else, and then couldn’t remember what for. That turned out to be a good thing, because this bread pudding was born.
It was so good! Sweet and moist, but not mushy, with a little crunch from the baked pieces on top. Super delicious served with maple syrup or cinnamon roll icing.
Winter break is coming, friends. I spy Christmas morning breakfast. And of course all year long!
