Caramel Bread Pudding

(14 Votes)
1 Hr 15 Min

Boy, we love bread pudding. Serve it hot and we're happy. Serve it cold and we're happy, too. Now imagine bread pudding laced with warm, gooey caramel! All we need to add is some fresh whipped cream and dessert will be complete.

What You'll Need

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) day-old French or Italian bread, torn into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup (1/2 pint) heavy cream
  • 30 caramels, chopped
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together the bread and water, soaking the bread.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and stir in the heavy cream. Add to the soaked bread along with the remaining ingredients.
  5. Place in the baking dish and bake for 60 to 65 minutes, or until the center is firm. Serve warm, or allow to cool completely, cover, and chill.


You can use vanilla or chocolate caramels, or even a combination of both. And for the finishing touch, sprinkle the pudding with some "snowy" confectioners' sugar just before serving.

I like to reheat it with butter and sprinkle reg. sugar to taste.. Delicious.

How do you "chop" caramels?

With a knife and a chopping board.

You can also use left over sweet rolls and I like to use cinnamon swirl bread as well.

sounds absolutely delicious, and I'm going to try it tonight......Looks like a winner.....Can't wait for the guests to try it!......OOH ITS SO GOOD!

You can use plain white bread and raisin bread cinnamon is excellent.

Could you complete the instructions as to how to use the granulated sugar, caramels and salt.

read #4 the very last part.

See #4, "Add to the soaked bread along with the remaining ingredients"

jnstruction number 4 says it

When do you add the granulated sugar, caramels and salt?

Duh, would that be included with the " remaining ingredients"?

you can use day old donuts in a lot of these bread pudding recipes
