Do you know or have you seen Challah bread?  Challah bread is an egg based bread and is the perfect companion to bread pudding.  If you can’t find Challah bread then using French bread will work too.  I get my bread from Beyond Bread, they make the most beautiful Challah bread.

Drive the caramel flavor home by adding some of my EASY CARAMEL SAUCE.  If you don’t want to make your own you can also use store bought caramel ice cream topping.  But why would you?  😀

Bread Pudding is one of my favorite breakfast items.  I was first introduced to bread pudding during one our trips to Hawaii.  As you can imagine I quickly fell in love with it.

    • Hi Cathy,

      Yes, you can bake this in a larger pan. I think it will fit into a 9X13. Once you’ve made the recipe it will help you judge better on the size. But I think there is enough bread pudding to fill the larger size. Good Luck! You are going to LOVE this Bread Pudding. My family did! 🙂

  3. This is just wrong….I shouldn’t come to check it out before dinner….I want one these so bad right now.

    Thank you so much for sharing it at Foodie Wednesday. Hope you can join us again this week.
