Pineapple Bread Pudding

If you have every tried to make a bread pudding, you will know how easy it is to make. So this recipe is a variant of a bread pudding – with some additional flavors which make it all the more delicious!

I like to flavor this pudding with some cake spice mix (if you have been following me, you will know I like to sneak this in whenever I can..;) ) and lemon rind. Neither of these have overpowering flavors, but it just enhances the overall taste of the dish. I like the fact that this pudding tickles your taste buds at different levels.

I have given a detailed step by step process for you to follow and the link to the video recipe as well. Do give this easy peasy dessert a try..:)

Few things to keep in mind

  • Bread: If you have bread which is a few days old or a little dry and nobody cares to make a sandwich with it and eat, then this is the perfect recipe that you can use it in. I actually used homemade bread that was in the refrigerator for two days and this pudding came out perfect.
  • Baking Time: Baking time can vary a little. So make sure you keep checking on how the top looks. I prefer baking this in a glass dish, as that helps me to see that the pudding is not getting dry. We need to bake till the top of the pudding is a slight golden brown color.
