11 Variations on Bread Pudding

  1. Berry-Brioche Bread Pudding
  2. To help balance the irresistibly crispy top, sprinkle the baking dish with turbinado sugar to give the bottom of the pudding a delightful crunch, too.

  3. Dulce de Leche Bread Pudding
  4. This gooey bread pudding made with caramel-like dulce de leche from Latin America is so much more than the sum of its five parts. To add even more flavor, throw in a handful of fresh or frozen raspberries or blueberries before baking.

  5. Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Caramel Rum Raisin Sauce
  6. This is an excellent alternative to pumpkin pie. Buttery brioche is soaked in a pumpkin crème brûlée base, then baked with a cinnamon sugar topping and served with a decadent caramel sauce.

  7. Warm Milk-Chocolate Croissant-Bread Pudding
  8. Croissants add a greater richness than plain bread.

  9. Lemon Curd Bread Pudding
  10. The lemon flavor makes this sweet bread pudding refreshing.

  11. Chocolate Bread Pudding with Bourbon Caramel Sauce
  12. Amber Huffman tops her challah-based chocolate bread pudding with a caramel spiked with Kentucky bourbon.

  13. Raisin-Studded Apple Bread Pudding
  14. Sweet golden raisins are added to this apple bread pudding.

  15. White Chocolate Bread Pudding
  16. Incredibly rich and impossibly indulgent, this bread pudding from the Palace Café in New Orleans delivers a double dose of chocolate—a triple dose if you garnish it with bittersweet chocolate shavings.

  17. Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding with Espresso Whipped Cream
  18. “This recipe was created over a breakfast of—what else?—Krispy Kremes,” says chef Govind Armstrong. The espresso-infused whipped cream makes a brilliant, and equally decadent, topping.

  19. Lemon-Blueberry Bread Pudding
  20. A recipe from Emeril Lagasse, from the 2007 Classic in Aspen.

  21. Panettone Bread Pudding
  22. The pudding can be refrigerated overnight. Rewarm before serving.

Artichoke-Heart, Spinach, and Mozzarella Bread Pudding

Using defrosted frozen vegetables can be a huge time-saver, since they’re already cooked, but don’t be in too much of a rush; you’ll need to take the time to drain and dry them, or the extra moisture will make the finished dish soggy.

Turkey and Swiss Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is one of the best vehicles for using up leftovers.

Tomato Bread Pudding

There’s no custard in this bread pudding, so it’s more like a hot, tangy bread salad—a super accompaniment to the lamb.

Kabocha Bread Pudding with Pisco-Soaked Prunes

Maricel Presilla, chef and owner of Cucharamama and Zafra in Hoboken, New Jersey, has been cooking with pisco, the South American aged grape brandy. This luscious, creamy three-milk (tres leches) bread pudding is flavored with kabocha squash and pisco-soaked prunes.

Cranberry-Pecan Bread Pudding with Bacon

A good loaf of cranberry-nut bread from a bakery has so much flavor that there’s no need to trick it up with lots of ingredients. As the pudding bakes, the bread becomes almost custardlike, with a crispy brown top.
