Tips

Expert Tips

  • Bread pudding is an old-fashioned baked dessert of cubed or sliced bread saturated with a mixture of milk, eggs, sugar and spices. This recipe has been simplified by using purchased toasted bread cubes.
  • Look for sweetened dried cranberries near the raisins and other dried fruits in the supermarket baking section.
  • The bread pudding can be assembled in the casserole and refrigerated several hours or overnight before baking it. The sauce can be made a day ahead and refrigerated; reheat it just before serving.
